Chicken Dijonnaise


It's hard to believe that such a luscious chicken recipe can make it into the category of 30-minute meals! The secret is in the winning combination of flavor-charged ingredients, including Dijon mustard, white wine, and a touch of cream and butter for extra richness.

Total Time:
30 mins


  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 pounds total)

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoon butter

  • 2 tablespoon chopped green onion (1)

  • cup whipping cream

  • 3 tablespoon dry white wine or chicken broth

  • 3 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard

  • Fresh thyme (optional)


  1. Place each chicken breast half between two pieces of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, lightly pound chicken to 1/4- to 1/8-inch thickness. Discard plastic wrap. In a shallow dish combine flour and pepper. Coat chicken pieces with flour mixture.

  2. In a 12-inch skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add chicken to skillet. Cook about 6 minutes or until no pink remains in the chicken, turning once. Transfer chicken to a platter, reserving drippings in skillet. Cover to keep warm.

  3. For sauce, add green onion to the drippings in the skillet. Cook and stir over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until tender. Stir in whipping cream, white wine, and mustard. Cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth and slightly thickened. Spoon sauce over chicken. If desired, snip fresh thyme to sprinkle over chicken and garnish with thyme sprigs.
