    My hubby and I really, REALLy enjoyed this. Had it with steamed veggies and whole grain rice last night, then today I had it on a spinach salad with mandarin oranges, slivered almonds and spray Asian dressing. Yummy! - 1/6/09

    I do not have a grill, but liked the recipe and followed it exactly and instead of grilling, after marinade for about 2 hours, I baked the chicken with all of the marinade for about 40 minutes on 350. Don't know what that did to the nutritional value, but it was terrific. I will make this often! - 2/11/08

    My wife did not care for this because she couldn't taste the balsamic. I, on the other hand, loved the taste that the ground mustard gave to this. One issue - the recipe doesn't include the water or the mustard. I assumed it was also supposed to be included with everything else and was correct. - 10/29/08

    I made this the other day with turkey breast instead of chicken and it was GREAT! I didn't have a grill available to me so I baked it for about 30 mins at 350. - 1/21/09

    I made this last night and it was fabulous! Since I didn't have the onion flakes, I used freeze dried chives instead. Loved that I could use up spices I already had. Will definitely be making this again...it's a keeper! - 6/25/10

    It was okay, but for some reason I did not realize how strong the soy sauce would be. A bit too much for me. Next time I'll half it. - 3/12/08

    Lots of flavor! I wanted to use fresh herbs from the garden so I used chives instead of onion flakes and oregano instead of Italian seasoning and omitted the water and marinated it overnight. The whole family loved it! - 6/13/13

    We made this today for lunch. It was a sell out! We would recommend cutting down on the salt, and we did not include the water. - 5/27/13

    The instructions don't say anything about the water and/or the mustard. Do they go in with the rest of the marinade? - 1/9/12

    This was great! The chicken was very moist and flavorful. It would be great in a salad. We didn't have the balsamic or ground mustard, so I just used apple cider vinegar and yellow mustard respectively. Still very good! - 1/5/09
