"Anything with the word "dijon" in the title instantly sounds exquisite and marvelous, even though it's only a $2.99 condiment. Dijon is the show-off in the mustard family. The chicken was tasty and quite moist, and paired nicely with the sweet potatoes. My kids ate two servings of chicken and some of the sweet potatoes. We didn't have any leftovers."

-Stephanie O'Dea


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
