Very good, even though it is a simple, easy to make dish, I feel it does make a bit of a mess and a lot of clean up. I have never used the asiago for this dish because its not something I always keep in my fridge. But very good, and goes long way. We have left overs for a few days.

I am addicted to this recipe!!! I love it! I use ground chicken instead because I am not a huge ground turkey fan. I also add some diced red pepper and about 3 cloves of diced garlic (when I made it the first time I felt it was missing a little something). But I love that the pineapple juice comes through and gives it the right amount of sweetness....

I made this one night after my mom made it and told me about it and how much she enjoyed it. I was a little skepitcal because I am not a mustard fan and thought I would taste nothing but mustard, but that was not the case at all. The chicken just had a nice fresh taste to it. I baked this in the oven, maybe next time I will try grilling. My daugh"
