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.

I just brown my chicken in a little butter no flour. I use half and half instead of whipping cream and the sauce will be much lighter.

I had to make a few substitutions -- light beer for the wine and didn't have dijon, so I used a bit of ground mustard and a bit of yellow (don't judge :) ) Still came out fabulous! Thanks for the recipe!

Made this tonight for dinner.  I used a half a teaspoon of salt in the flour mixture.  I also had to add two teaspoons of butter to the pan to make the sauce.  I used milk instead of cream and the chicken broth for the Dijon sauce.  My family liked it.  I thought the chicken was very moist and flavorful.  Will make this again.

I made according to directions. I give it a 3. Not fabulous. Also needed salt. Okey for something different.

So easy and so good.  Gave it to my six-year-old who does NOT like mustard, but this is so mellow and tasty, you don't know it's mustard.  Just added it to my favorite recipes.

4 star, delicious & easy---a total keeper we both loved & now in my permanent rotation! In fact, I have another recipe for Dijon chicken and this one is the hands-down winner! The salt in the Dijon seasoned it wonderfully w/out adding more salt. We like lots of sauce so I doubled it; no need to since just one batch makes plenty. And it's delicious!
