Hi I am so thrilled I found your webpage, I really found you by mistake, while I was searching on Digg for something else, Anyhow I am here now and would just like to say kudos for a incredible post and a all round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to go through it all at the moment but I have bookmarked it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a lot more, Please do keep up the excellent job.

The boneless, skinless chicken thighs are only 4.5 g fat per 4 oz, so I think it is ok in Phase 1.

They were delicious! I’ve made a similar recipe using butter & cream with the Dijon. This is now my go-to !!! Used the left
over thighs tonight on top of mixed salad using the juices as dressing! Thank you

I used thin chicken breasts. It was very tasty – cooked much quicker. I am sure it is much better with thighs.

This looks delicious, but I thought we could only have boneless,skinless chicken breast Phase1.
Are boneless skinless thighs allowed???

I apologize for that! I will go in and fix that. Add the vinegar to the dijon, and seasonings in the bowl. I hope you like it!

You neglected to say when to add the vinegar.. It looks delicious. I hope it turns out as good as it looks.


January 25, 2017

You never mentioned when to use the vinegar.. Nevertheless, I mixed it in the sauce. Hope it’s as good as it looks!
