    We really liked the flavor of this dish. After mixing up the sauce, I couldn't understand why this shouldn't be cooked with the chicken and that is what I did. Just poured on top and then added the sliced grapes before the end of cooking. I am kind of surprised that no on has suggested using a combination of green and red grapes to make the dish more visually pleasing. I did this with good results. Served with brown rice.  -  23 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I will admit I was *very* skeptical about the Dijon mustard sauce, as I am not generally a fan of mustard. But this was a most excellent recipe!!! I quartered the grapes (thought the whole grapes wouldn't integrate well at eating time, and I'm glad I did it this way), but other than that, strictly followed the recipe. I don't really understand the comments by those that were disappointed with this recipe, but I guess to each his or her own. I made if for a friend that is on a fat-restricted diet due to MS, and it was a bit hit. Thanks for a great recipe! I have added it to my "repertoire" and will be making this again.  -  19 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    If you don't want to use the oven (too hot during the summer where I live for that!), here's a stove-top version: Use the sauce as a marinade (including minced garlic - I used four cloves) for four chicken breasts cut into large pieces (I also added a little oil). After marinating for a couple hours, heat a little oil in a pan, and saute chicken and sauce for 25-30 minutes. Add grapes (which I also halved) ten minutes before serving. Serve with rice. I also used balsamic vinegar, and I omitted the seseame seeds for this version.  -  28 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
