Dinner Done Fast: Mustard Chicken
This dish traditionally features a full chicken breast but, in the interest of time, I cut mine up into bite sized pieces so they would cook a lot quicker. A bonus: my kids consider the pieces like chicken nuggets so it takes care of kid dinner too!
  • 1 lb chicken breast
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • ½ teaspoon dried tarragon (plus more for garnish)
  • 2 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  1. Season your chicken with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add your chicken.
  2. Once the chicken is all done, remove it from the pan and keep it warm. Pour ¼ cup chicken broth into the pan and scrape up all the yummy bits. Let it simmer until it is reduced by half (takes about one minute). I usually throw in ½ teaspoon garlic at this point too but that is mostly because I just love garlic. You get a much smoother sauce without it!
  3. Now, whisk in 2 tablespoons of dijon mustard and ½ teaspoon of dried tarragon. Let that simmer for 2-3 minutes (continuing to whisk) and then, whisk in ½ cup heavy whipping cream (don't have it on hand...no worries. Use ¾ cup milk and ⅓ cup of butter to make 1 cup of whipping cream)
  4. Continue to whisk the sauce over medium heat until it thickens. Remove it from the heat and drizzle it over your chicken. Top it with a sprinkle of dried tarragon.
