Chicken in Mustard Sauce

"Although there are several chicken in mustard sauce recipes here on Zaar, I couldn't find one with these exact ingredients. I just love it, and the recipe makes enough sauce that you can enjoy it over noodles or rice. Although one of my favorite things is to have a nice crusty loaf of bread to sop up the sauce.

Ready In:




  • Brown the chicken in the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 4 minutes or until done, turning occasionally. Remove the chicken from the skillet, reserving the drippings in skillet. Set the chicken aside; keep warm.
  • Add the wine to the drippings; cook over high heat, deglazing pan by scraping the particles that cling to the bottom. Reduce heat to medium. Stir in the whipping cream, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, salt, pepper, tarragon and a dash or ground red pepper. Cook, uncovered, until the mixture is thick enough to cat a spoon, stirring occasionally. Add the reserved chicken. Bring to a boil; cover, and reduce the heat. Simmer for 5 minutes. Serve.

    I made this on Mothers Day evening (yep... hubby didn't cook for me). This was so very good. It is a nice change from plain ol' lemon chicken, the Dijon does wonders for it. I do have to say that I did not use the tarragon, just because I do not like the licorice flavor it gives. No matter... it turned out fabulous! I made "No Yolks" egg noodles to serve this dish over. Thank you so much for posting your recipe, I have it saved. (Made for PRMR)

    Made this recipe pretty much as given, although I did cut it in half for the 2 of us! Really enjoyed the sauce & had the chicken over a bed of egg noodles! Definitely a recipe I'll be making again! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]

    This was really good. It was quick and simple to make and I really enjoyed the this sauce. The dijon added such a nice flavor. Thanks breezermom for yet another keeper. Made for 123 Tag.

    This was my first time eating chicken in a mustard sauce and wow it's great. We liked the taste of the wine, dijon and lemony taste. I didn't use salt, and ground red pepper. Thanks Breezermom :) made for Photo tag game

    Really delicious and very company worthy. I used a grainy Dijon and a lower fat sub for the whipping cream so I can imaging that with the real cream it would be very luxurious indeed. It's really fast to make and thats always a plus. Instead if cubing the chicken I just cut a breast in half for DH and I because I knew that he wouldn't want that wonderful sauce so I made a smaller amount of if just for myself. He misses so many good things! Anyway, the flavors are rich and feel so indulgent that you'll savor each bite. Made for Photo Tag.
