Great birthday dinner

I served this as a birthday dinner for a friend and WOW! The aroma as it was cooking was amazing. The red and yellow peppers make it look beautiful and served with a small side salad and dinner rolls...a perfect combination.

    GREAT!

    Sonja Granger from

    This was a great meal. Definitely different. If you like a little more flavor then add more of the honey and mustard, it gives it a nice taste. Also, the house smelled great for a while!!

    Quick and Healthy

    Rebecca Novinger from Mansfield,TX

    I made this dinner for a good friend of mine. She is a new mom and I was looking for something healthy for her and the baby, as well as her husband and two grown boys. This recipe was very simple to make and delicious. The entire family enjoyed it.

    5 stars all the way

    Michelle S. from Salisbury, MD

    I cooked this yesterday for my boyfriends birthday and the family loved it, even my 6 year old who insists that she doesn't like peppers or onions, gave it a thumbs up.

    Honey Dijon Fettuccine and Chicken

    Barbara Dillard from Houston, TX

    My family loves pasta and Butoni takes the work out of cooking. The combination of honey and dijon mustart gives this dish a wonderful and unique flavor. It iis one of my favorite recipes. Another reward is it can be prepared in minutes.

    easy, but missing the 'kick'

    Michelle from

    This recipe was simple to make and had a decent flavor. However, I felt it was missing it's kick...it either needed to be more spicy or more sweet.

    like a restaurant

    reda from

    It was great! first thing my husband said was: "this is just like in a restaurant". I used a strong version of dijon and surved the meat on mashed potatos with butter and herbs instead of the pasta. mmm...

    Gene from Chicago, IL

    Easy to make, tasty but could have more flavor.

  •  Star(s)

    Delicious!

    Tina from

    My husband and I enjoyed this a lot! It had a sweet and sour taste to it. I will probably use a little less cornstarch next time but it was easy and quick enough to make again!

    Has potential

    Eileen from Portland Oregon

    I found this to be a little bland, in spite of the mustard. I made a few changes - 1/2 regular mustard, because I was almost out of the dijon. I used crimini mushrooms and orange bell pepper. This is a good starting point for those end-of-the-week clean-out-the-veggie-bin meals.

    Tasty

    C.M Myers from Baker City Oregon

    I just made this recipe and when I cooked the chicken , I seasoned it with salt & pepper. We ate this sauce & chicken over brown rice which was very good. Next time I make it ,tho, I will only put 1 tbsp of mustard in ,as it is just a bit strong . I do love mustard but think it's a bit too much for this sauce. Thank you for this recipe. IT will be very good over noodles as well.

    Tasty and Quick

    Ellen Turney from Conway, Arkansas

    Simple, tasty and quick. I substituted fresh broccoli and sun dried tomatoes for the 2 different kinds of peppers. Everyone who ate this with me really liked it. We had fresh baked bread with hot pepper dipping oil along with the dish and it was a complete meal. It has the appearance of a gourmet dish. Very appealing to the eyes and taste buds.

    Delicious and easy.

    Joan McI from Wilmington, NC

    I keep pepper strips in freezer, so it made the prep work quicker. I used pieces of whole chicken breast (not strips/cubes) and extra amount of the veggies. As suggested in another review, I doubled sauce but found I didn't really need it. This is a fast and easy recipe. My husband said it "was a keeper". I served it at a dinner party and my guests enjoyed it and asked for recipe.

    Nothing Special

    Amber from Kelso, WA

    I made this dish for my husband and I and followed the suggestions of others and doubled the honey, mustard, and cornstarch. We both thought it was pretty bland. I think seasoning the chicken while cooking MIGHT help, but overall, it just tasted like something was missing. Maybe it was the plain noodles overpowering the rest of the dish... might be better over rice cooked in chicken broth or a prepackaged seasoned rice???

    Sauce

    Mike from Gilbert, AZ

    This is one of the better sauces that I have had, not to sweet and not to spicy. I will have to try it with the rice

    Honey Dijon Fettuccine and Chicken

    earline Webb from

    I work at a facility where we share preparing lunch. I decided that since it was my birthday week I would prepare something different. Everyone loved the Honey Dijon Fettuccine, and had seconds. I doubled the recipe.

    Altered to meet families tastes

    Brandy from Ruston, Louisiana

    I liked this recipe a lot. I used rice instead of the noodles because it was just more filling that way. I took the advice of other reviews and doubled the recipe. I also served it with a tossed salad and crusty bread. My family really loved the sweet taste of the sauce. I will be making this for lots of people for a long time.

    Quick, easy, delicous

    VICKIE LANNI from Marco Island FL

    Since I am a working Mom, I thought this recipe was quick, easy and delicious. I would recommend to double the broth, mustard, honey and corn starch. It was wonderful.

  •  Star(s)

    Very good

    Liz from Daytona beach, Fl

    Quick to make. I would give the dish a 5 Stars.

  •  Star(s)

    I'LL TRY THIS!

    kiten villamor from

    As what I've read from other reviews this recipe is great and it is time saving. I hope to try this the soonest time possible...I will all let you know if I have succeeded in following the given procedure.

    Needed a little help

    Annie from Woodbridge, VA

    I added white pepper to the chicken while it cooked, upped the quantity of peppers and onions and threw in a handful of raisins for color. Turned out pretty darned good like that. The family liked it; I'll definitely make it again. (Also cut the chicken into strips....worked out better.)

  •  Star(s)

    Good stuff

    Scott from Denver, CO

    I thought this recipe was a little bland, but it can definitely be fixed. I added some more dijon and honey after all was said and done. That helped I think. next time I'll add more cornstarch too.

  •  Star(s)

    Yuck

    Jamie from Texas

    Very bland, not very good.

  •  Star(s)

    To good to be true!!!!!

    Melody Robins from Ohio

    This was to good. I enjoyed it very much so. I can say this is one of the most best recipes I have made in years. It's very easy and tasty. That honey Dijon brings a wonderful flavor to the meal. I am surely going to be making this more!!!!!

  •  Star(s)

    WOW!

    jeremy kasapidis from duluth, MN

    This was GREAT! Wonderful flavor, and easy to prepare! We will definatly be having it again... and again!

  •  Star(s)

    Wonderful!!

    Michelle from New Hampshire

    This is a great recipe and very time saving! I cooked the chick breast in low fat chicken broth before adding to recipe. I think next time I may cube the chicken & cook in pan sprayed with a non-fat spray (such as pam) before adding to recipe just to make the pieces more managable when eating. Even my children loved this though!! I give 5 stars *****

  •  Star(s)

    Hmmmm...

    Michaella from Vancouver, BC

    I have to say this recipe was a bit bland for my liking, but I combined it with black pepper fettuccine and that added some flavour. Maybe add more honey and mustard...who knows...

    Quick and Easy!

    Kara from Ontario Canada

    This is a delicious recipe that I can make in a flash! I often whip it up when I want something gourmet, but have little time to spend cooking. This recipe has become a staple for me and I will often mix it up a little by substituting shrimp for the chicken, or a variety of vegetables. I have never been disappointed!!

  •  Star(s)

    Bland and time waste

    Catson5 from Louisville, KY

    This is the first negative review I've written. Usually I just don't cook a recipe again, but I thought this one was actually so much worse than I expected that I had to comment. The sauce was very bland and for the effort an actual fettuccine sauce could have been made. If you still want to try it, I'd suggest using a prepared Honey Mustard Salad Dressing like Brianna's instead of making this sauce. It will be thinner, so I'd use it with a cheese tortolini or a penne pasta and serve the chicken and peppers on the side.

    Honey Dijon Fettuccine and Chicken

    Roy Plummer from San Antonio Texas

    This is a very good dish and quite filling, with a glass of white wine and a nice Cup of Carrots on the side MMMM-M

  •  Star(s)

    Great!!

    Jeannette from Grand Island, NY

    My family really loved this meal. I did a few things on my own. I cubed the chicken breast and dipped it in flour, seasoned it with garlic powder and Emeril's essence before I sauteed it. I also added mushrooms and sauteed the veggies before I put them in with everything and I finished it off with a couple tablespoons of sour cream to make the texture a little nicer

  •  Star(s)

    Slightly altered

    Erin Maysent from Fargo, North Dakota

    For my family tastes I did some substitutions. We aren't big pepper fans so I switched to broccoli which was hit for the adults but not for the kiddies. For them I suggest mandarin oranges and water chestnuts. It sounds a little exotic but it really hits the spot.

  •  Star(s)

    My version

    Rebecca Pope from San Antonio

    I altered the recipe just a bit by slow-cooking the chicken and sauce in a crockpot for 6 hours. I added the fresh vegetables and cooked for another 1/2 hour. Instead of fettuccine I used spaghetti noodles. I also cut the chicken breasts into cubes rather than cooking them whole. I served garlic toast as a side. I found the flavor to be good, although the sweetness was too mild for our tastes. We added about a tablesppon of sugar per serving. We also added salt and pepper to taste once we had the food on our plates. Although my husband liked the meal, my children (ages 6, 3 and 1 1/2) were tougher critics. I would recommend this dish for adults!
