Ready In:




  • Season chicken well with salt, pepper, paprika, oregano and basil.
  • Brown and cook the chicken breasts in oil on both sides until juices run clear and chicken is cooked through. Place the cooked chicken in a serving dish with high sides (to catch the sauce).
  • In the same skillet, saute the onions, garlic and fresh mushrooms until onions are soft (about 4-5 minutes).
  • Add broccoli florets, cream and mustard and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 5-6 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender and cream sauce is thickened. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.
  • Pour the sauce over chicken in serving dish.
  • Sprinkle with minced, fresh parsley.

  1. I absolutely loved this recipe. My husband is trying the Atkins diet and I found this while trying to figure out what to make for dinner. It was so good that it's going to be added as a regular dinner in our house.
  2. My fiance and I have been on the atkins diet for almost the entire year. Thank you for this great idea. I did do a few things differently, but i used the same idea and it turned out great! I used chicken thighs and seasoned them more with. Since the thighs had bones in them I moved them over to a baking dish and poured the sauce on top and baked it for about 25 mins. It was fantastic. I also didn't measure the dijon just put a fair amount in. The taste of the dijon was what really made this fantastic!
  3. This smelled great while cooking but ended up tasting very bland. I loved the fresh mushrooms, broccoli, and the presentation was nice, but the taste was just not there. I didn't change a thing.
  4. A+++ recipe! I can't use cream, so I replaced it with almond milk mixed with 1 T. whole wheat flour. Everything else I followed as written. We loved it!

<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
