Mustard Chicken in Cream Sauce

Updated: Aug 22, 2019

The cream sauce in this meal is everything. It's so flavorful and nearly effortless. The sauce is tart with lemon and herby from the ingredients that we use when we sear the chicken. This one pot dinner is super easy to make, and it comes together in under an hour. If you have fresh herbs, use them in the sauce, but the additional chopping may put you over that one-hour start-to-finish deadline. If your family turns its nose up at asparagus sub another vegetable here. You could cook broccoli in the sauce like I did here or bake it on the side in the oven. I served this over egg noodles because Jim and my kids love them, but angel hair pasta, red potatoes or mashed potatoes would be perfect alongside this tender chicken.


Olive oil (I like California Olive Ranch evoo)

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
