Classic concept & much akin to an archived family recipe - Pork Loin Raskova. Easy enough to half the recipe plus liked having the skin-on thighs de-boned. Nice touch at the serving stage to also add fresh zest of lemon or, if serving with wavy noodles, a dollop of sour cream laced with finely grated horseradish. Hearty & very smile-worthy.

Terrible. Way too much Rosemary & Thyme...& I cut it less than half. Both spices. along with the dijon mustard are too overpowering & ruined the flavor of the chicken...never again.

We had this last night and it was great. However, I think there is a serious typ-o in the chicken amount. 4 pounds of chicken for 4 servings??? No way. And if you do the calories with about 1 pound of chicken, boneless/skinless, the calories per serving comes out to about 320 calories, a much better outcome than the 757 calories listed for this recipes.

I agree with the question of calories, BUT- this was a very good & easy recipe, without being costly. You can also easily cut it down or make a larger amt..I made it for an after mass memorial & got a good many "can I get the recipe" questions.   It is definitely a MAKE AGAIN!

This chicken and sauce was delicious but I fail to see how a serving of 2 thighs with sauce and mushrooms can be 246 calories. I used the bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs from Tyson and according to their calorie information on the package the chicken by itself for 4 oz. is 250 calories. Since that is just the chicken and the average thigh weighs 8 to 9 oz. there is no way the calorie count is accurate for this dish.

Great recipe. Such GREAT flavor. Used all my fresh growing herbs on my front porch. Made homemade garlic bread. (if you don't grow your own garlic, you should and my homemade french baguettes only have br flour, water, salt and yeast) fixed a great salad and we loved it very much, Thank you!

I use chicken breast, and I also sub the Dijon mustard for whole grain mustard. I plate over bow tie pasta-- amazing!

Hi, Katie. I'm Colleen from the Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen staff. You are right-that nutrition doesn't add up. I checked into it and did find that that nutrition information was entered incorrectly. We used skinned chicken to figure the nutrition facts rather than chicken with skin on. I updated the nutrition information. Look for that to be updated in the next day or two. Thanks for bringing this to our attention-what would we do without our readers!

I used boneless/ skinless chicken breast to help cut down the calorie count. i was worried about drying out the chicken, so after browning the chicken on both sides, I wrapped it up in foil and set it aside while i made the sauce. I added the chicken back into to the sauce and finished baking it in the oven.  It took an extra 15 minutes, but the chicken was moist and delicious, and my family (including my 2yo toddler) loved it!  Thanks!
