Chicken with Mustard Cream Sauce

I found this recipe in a newly purchased cookbook, Everyday Food: Great Food Fast (from the kitchen’s of Martha Stewart Living).  It’s my new favorite cookbook.  I love it so much I subscribed to Everyday Food magazine!

This chicken is a perfect example of the kind of recipes that are featured in the Everyday Food cookbooks and magazine.  Quick, simple and delicious.  I almost always have the ingredients on hand for this recipe, which is great for the nights I haven’t really planned anything for dinner and don’t want to spend a lot of time figuring out what to cook.  It’s not a bad idea to double the sauce, as that gives you plenty for the chicken, plus some left to spoon over a side of rice.

  1. I love tarragon in a sauce. It’s such a nice change, and I don’t see it used often. Looks delicious!

  2. That sounds wonderful! I just bought dijon mustard too.

  3. I just gave this recipe to a friend on Wednesday except mine also has a spoonful of honey in the sauce. I can vouch for how good the recipe is.

  4. Oh, that looks delicious! I used to make something similar, but I haven’t made it in ages.

  5. This looks delish! I will have to give it a try.

  6. Thanks for visiting my blog, Danelle, and I now also copied THIS recipe of yours! I should just leave my laptop open to your blog, and cook from your recipes! ;)
    Best,
    Gloria

  7. I just added this to my “must make” list! Sounds delicious and super simple!

  8. This is a fabulous recipe! I made it recently and my husband and I instantly loved it. I’ve since made it two or three more times. The sauce is so rich, creamy, and flavorful. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I made this last night for dinner. It was delicious! I doubled the sauce because my husband likes lots of sauce, he enjoyed it so much he almost licked the plate!

  10. I had a dish like this at a wonderful restaurant recently and have been wanting to figure out how to make it at home. Now I can! YUM
    Thank you!

  11. Just made this for dinner and we LOVED it! Thanks for sharing!!

  12. Just made this for my boyfriend, I was looking for something quick and easy and this turned out amazing! I seared the chicken in a stainless steel pan and the chicken turned out caramelized crispy! The boyfriend loved it, served it with asparagus, mushrooms and snow peas! SO GOOD! Thank you for sharing this!

  13. So glad you and your boyfriend liked it. It’s one of my favorites too!

  14. I like to cook with things I already have in the house and unfortunately I don’t have heavy cream on hand. Do think if I use a can of campbells cream of chicken soup as a substitute that it would work? Well i”m going to try it tonight and see how it works, but I think next time I’ll try it the recipe as is.

  15. This looks amazing, but the recipe says to preheat the oven… And then the oven isn’t used?
    I’m confused.

  16. Tamara, the recipe is referring to pre-heating the skillet with the oil on the stovetop, not preheating the oven.

  17. Made this tonight and loved it! My only issue, the sauce was a bit thinner than yours. I’m new to the kitchen…did I just not cook it long enough? Will definitely make this again!

    • Mainly you just need to let the sauce reduce a little longer to get it thicker. sometimes we get impatient but if you want it to not seep everywhere just leave it on the stove a little bit longer and it should thicken up.

  18. Made this for supper! Delish!!

  28. I made this last night. It was a fast and yummy chicken recipe. Which I love!

  29. Soooo good and warm and yummy on a day you do not feel like spending a whole lot of time on dinner, but want a home cooked meal…I served with chicken rice and it was received well by my hubby, 1 year old, 5 year old, and 8 year old. Thumbs up!

  30. I made this last night- it was really good and my boyfriend said he loved the sauce! (I overlooked the chicken a bit or he probably would not have made the distinction of only loving the sauce :P) I will definitely make this again. thanks!

  31. Thanks so much- making this for dinner tonight, yummy!

  32. We made this a few new ago…it’s a new family favorite! Thanks for sharing!

  33. I love the recipe! I add my chicken back to the sauce for extra flavoring! Thanks so much!

  34. This looks delicious. Pinning for future consumption. :)

  35. My husband and I found this recipe while looking for low carb options. I don’t use Dijon mustard often because to me it can be very “strong” tasting. But this was very good! I love that I already have all the items on hand that I need to make this. If you have not tried this recipe, its definitely worth it.

  36. This looks so good!! Pinning!

  37. Mmmmm, this looks super-delicious! Pinning!

  40. Mad it for dinner tonight–it was amazing. Hubby thought I made a special meal for him. I did–under 30 minutes! Loved it.

  41. Thanks for the recipe! We are going extremely low carb and so excited to find another low carb dinner idea!! Going to make it tonight!
