    This was AMAZING my son was picking it off his plate before I finished loading him up.I used the sugar free lemon jello and for the prepared mustard a dijon. Cooking time was off but then again my oven is 20 years old so I would start uncovered and check it at 25 minutes. Chicken comes out moist and YUMMMMMMMMMMMMY
