Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season chicken well with salt, pepper, paprika, oregano and basil.
  2. Brown and cook the chicken breasts in oil on both sides until juices run clear and chicken is cooked through. Place the cooked chicken in a serving dish with high sides (to catch the sauce).
  3. In the same skillet, saute the onions, garlic and fresh mushrooms until onions are soft (about 4-5 minutes).
  4. Add broccoli florets, cream and mustard and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 5-6 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender and cream sauce is thickened. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.
  5. Pour the sauce over chicken in serving dish.
  6. Sprinkle with minced, fresh parsley.

I absolutely loved this recipe. My husband is trying the Atkins diet and I found this while trying to figure out what to make for dinner. It was so good that it's going to be added as a regular dinner in our house.

My fiance and I have been on the atkins diet for almost the entire year. Thank you for this great idea. I did do a few things differently, but i used the same idea and it turned out great! I used chicken thighs and seasoned them more with. Since the thighs had bones in them I moved them over to a baking dish and poured the sauce on top and baked it for about 25 mins. It was fantastic. I also didn't measure the dijon just put a fair amount in. The taste of the dijon was what really made this fantastic!

This smelled great while cooking but ended up tasting very bland. I loved the fresh mushrooms, broccoli, and the presentation was nice, but the taste was just not there. I didn't change a thing.
