“We had a delicious chicken dish at a local restaurant and we searched for recipes to taste like it. This seemed to do it. You can also substitute grilled filet mignon for "Filet Mignon Mama Mia" for a tasty and different grilled steak topping.”
4 main course servings

  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 pinch fresh ginger (or t. dry)
