READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by BakinBaby

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!
