Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place chicken between sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet or heavy skillet until flattened to an even thickness, about 1/2 inch. Season both sides of the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Place 1/4 cup flour in a shallow glass baking dish and dredge the chicken in it. Discard the excess flour.

  • Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate, cover and keep warm.

  • Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the pan over medium-high heat. Add shallots and cook, stirring constantly and scraping up any browned bits, until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon flour; stir to coat. Add wine, broth and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; bring to a boil, stirring often.

  • Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until heated through and no longer pink in the center, about 6 minutes. Stir in sour cream and mustard until smooth; turn the chicken to coat with the sauce. Stir in chives and serve immediately.

Just not good. I did NOT like the mustard-wine combo. I too found it bland and floury. I make chicken often and am always trying to find ways to mix it up so my hubby doesn't get "chickened-out." You can find better chicken recipes out there. Read More

Tastes like comfort food! DELICIOUS! I followed the recipe exactly except I took the chicken out of the pan when I added the cream and then added the chicken back in. Also I used Greek yogurt in place of sour cream because it adds more protein is a much healthier option has the same flavor and texture and is what I had in the fridge. I will DEFINITELY add this as a dinner staple. Pros: Easy delicious good leftovers Read More

Great easy healthy and delicious I have made this dish many times. I reduce the broth and wine a bit to make it more creamy. I also remove the chicken prior to adding the sour cream then add it back in. Works very well with roasted broccoli just pour the additional sauce on the florets! Read More

This turned out great! I made a couple of modifcations. I was out of white wine so i used chicken broth instead - I also decreased the amount of liquid to one full cup total for the broth. I also used Tabasco brand mustard - for a little extra zing. The sauce turned out perfectly. I went easy on the onion since I was feeding it my 2 year old. She loved it! I found the recipe quick easy and flavorful - it will become a regular menu item at my house! Read More

The only thing my husband changed was that he put the chicken in oven for a little bit just to ensure it was cooked thoroughly through and we then put the sauce on when we ready to eat! It was great we bothed loved it! Read More

Excellent Chicken dish that I will make again. I cut the sauce down for 1 piece of chicken and it was perfect. I used Roscato Wine. I'd be curious to know some other white wines that are good for cooking and if it's a sweet or dry wine. Read More

Sauce is Divine! I bought the thin sliced chicken cutlets to save time. This recipe makes a ton of heavenly sauce. I served this with mashed potatoes but it would be great with crusty bread rice or noodles. Fantastic weeknight meal. Pros: quick easy yummy Read More

Definately a keeper. Sauce tasted amazing. Great for a regular week night or for company. If I were serving it to company would want to thicken the sauce up a bit by adding a little less broth or increasing the amount of flour or sour cream. Read More
