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.
- 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 chicken breasts, split,skinned and boned
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1⁄2 cup half-and-half
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tomatoes, cut in wedges or 2 canned tomatoes, drained
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 2 tablespoons canned capers
- Melt butter or olive oil in a large skillet.
- Add chicken breasts and cook until done and lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
- Remove chicken to a warm serving platter.
- Stir flour into pan drippings in skillet, cook for 1 minute.
- Add the chicken broth, half and half.
- Stir and cook until the sauce thickens and bubbbles, add in mustard, capers and frozen peas.
- Return chicken to skillet, cover and heat for 10 minutes.
- Garnish with tomatoes and sprinkle with parsley.
- We typically serve with tortolini or other pasta and cover with extra dijon 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. :)
