In just 35 minutes you can boil angel hair pasta, sauté the chicken and whip up the sauce, which features shallot, a splash of white wine and the eponymous mustard. You finish the sauce with just a bit of sour cream and fresh sage. Nestle the chicken on the pasta and top with warm, rich-tasting sauce—wonderful.

In this healthy, creamy mustard chicken recipe, thin-sliced chicken breasts (sometimes labeled chicken cutlets) cook quickly and are delicious smothered in a velvety, light mustard sauce and garnished with fresh chopped sage. If you can’t find chicken cutlets, cut boneless, skinless chicken breast into 4-ounce pieces and place between pieces of plastic wrap.
