    This dish was yummy, my boyfriend liked it too. Changes I made: I seasoned the raw chicken with some salt, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder first. In the sauce I cut it down to a lil under 1 cup of wine and there was no strong wine taste, I used white zinfendel (sp?) that is actually pink. I added quite a bit extra garlic powder, enough until I could smell it in the sauce. Instead of mustard seed I added about a tablespoon of dijon mustard. I let the chicken sit overnight with the cheese and sauce on it. Right before baking I added the croutons and melted butter. I did not measure it, just added what I thought I'd want. I baked pepperidge farm puff pastry shells, halfed them, and placed the chicken and sauce over it. Really good!  -  31 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
