    Sharon123's Note:

    Adapted from The Kitchen Detective: A Culinary Sleuth Solves Common Cooking Mysteries with 150 Foolproof Recipes by Christopher Kimball, this is yummy! If using canned chicken broth, choose a low-sodium brand, or the sauce will be too salty. If using kosher chicken, skip the brine, the chicken is already salty. An English and French recipe.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    For the Chicken

    For the Sauce


    1. 1
      For the chicken:
    2. 2
      Dissolve the salt and sugar in 2 quarts cold water in a large bowl. (You can also use a large plastic freezer bag.) Put the chicken in the brine and refrigerate until fully seasoned, about 1 hour. Remove the chicken from the brine and rinse it well under cold running water. Dry thoroughly inside and out with paper towels. Adjust an oven rack to the center position in your oven and heat to 350* F.
    3. 3
      Using a sharp knife, make three diagonal slashes in the skin of each piece of chicken, being careful not to cut into the meat. Season both sides with pepper. Meanwhile, add the olive oil to a heavy 12" skillet over medium-high heat, and when the oil just starts to smoke, add the chicken breasts, skin-side down, and be careful- they will splatter. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes or until dark brown. Turn the breasts skin-side up and place the skillet in the heated oven. Cook for 15 to 25 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer reads 165 degrees at the thickest part of each breast. Carefully remove the pan from the oven (the handle will be really hot). Transfer the chicken to a warm platter and cover with aluminum foil to retain heat.
    4. 4
      For the sauce:
    5. 5
      Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the skillet and place the skillet over high heat. Add the shallot, sherry, and chicken stock and scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook at a rolling boil until the liquid has thickened slightly and has reduced by about two thirds, about 5 minutes. Add the mustard and thyme and cook 1 minute. Add the lemon juice and parsley and cook 30 seconds more. Serve immediately spooned over the chicken breasts. Enjoy!

      DH and I liked this recipe. It had nice flavor and I liked the zip the fresh lemon and Dijon gave to the dish. We followed all ingredients and steps as posted. Thanks!

      DELISH!!!!!! First I used 1 cup of my seasoned salt Flavored Seasoned Salt in place of the salt and sugar. Brined overnight because of a dinner plan change. Used thighs which I fried without oil. I used a very hot heavy bottom pan placing skin side down. In which much fat was released and walla no sticking just be sure to let it brown good before moving. Don`t overcrowd the chicken then you`re steaming it and not browning it. I also added the zest of the lemon along with capers a new love of mine. This has so much Flavor and Tenderness without the added FAT!!!!! Sharon I just loved this! Thanks!
