I thought this was awesome! Five stars from me. My husband wined about it. But I give the review. I'll make it again. P.S. All I could get was boneless, skinless, so I didn't broil them.

Great chicken! I used bone-in, skin-on thighs. The topping is so tasty, though I think I'll use a little more horseradish the next time (we love it!). The package had three large thighs and I had about half the sauce left over, so will cut down to a half recipe for the next go-round. Thanks for sharing!

What a delightful surprise! I had always considered horseradish as an accompaniment for beef dishes, but it paired quite nicely with the baked chicken breasts. The dijon/horseradish sauce is really quite tasty and makes this quite a special dish (especially considering the ultra-simple and quick preparation). It very easily goes into my "wow" file. Yum. Thanks, lazyme.

Daily Inspiration

What an easy recipe to make with lots of flavor. The only change I made was to reduce the amount of prepared horseradish to 2 tbsp. vs. 3. Served with a rice side dish and salad.

This was terrific! I had a tube of German Sharp Horseradish which I think is more intense than prepared horseradish, so I only used 1 TB and upped the Dijon to 1 TB. I added some sautéed mushrooms to the remaining sauce and served with green beans. DH loved it and so did I. Made for one of your football wins!
