After trying an old Dijon recipe; I came up with one of our family favorites. I added capers and peas. My family loves it and I get great reviews everytime I serve this dish. It can also be used as a pasta sauce.

I cut my chicken up into pieces so it would be easier to eat with the pasta. Loved the sauce....increased the Dijon and capers just a tad. Also added freshly ground black pepper. My son hates tomatoes, so we left those out, and I'm not sure that I'd want to add them next time. This was delicious and we really enjoyed it tonight. Thanks for sharing! Made for 123 Hits!

This was nice and creamy, and the mustard flavor was just right, not too much and not too little. I also forgot the tomatoes, but it really didn't need them. We served it with rice, but next time I will try pasta. Thanks for posting!

This is so good! I forgot to put on the tomatoes and the minced parsley. :( They were ready and just sitting in the frig. I was worried about no salt but the capers adds just the right amount for me, DH added more. I cut the recipe in half but kept the sauce amount the same. I served it over some pasta with some garlic bread and a tossed salad and dinner was ready. Thanks for posting. :)
