A Different Chicken Dijonaisse

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Jezski

Elegant, creamy and delicious. Quick to make. A pinch of rosemary, thyme or tarragon can be added, if to your taste. Spoon over puff pastry patty shells for company. Or over noodles, pasta, or mashed potatoes for an upscale family dinner. From my "Olde Recipe" files.

This is a super easy and, as you say, an elegant recipe! I think my family enjoyed it just a tad more than I did, but I just have a hard time with white sauces in general. Flavor was great! I had a spicy Dijon that I used in it and had chicken thighs instead of breasts. I served it over recipe #305974 (Rachael Ray's Rice Pilaf). Delicious! Thanks for sharing with us Jezski! Made & enjoyed for Let's P-A-R-T-Y! tag game. :)
