Creamy Mustard Chicken

September/October 2013

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (135 votes)

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. Pound with a meat mallet, rolling pin or heavy skillet until flattened to about 1/2 inch thick.

Creamy Mustardy Sauce.... Delish

This recipe hit it out of the park. I wanted a healthy creamy sauce with a hint of mustard (being a mustard lover). I made adaptations, but don't think they did anything to detract from the original recipe. I'd say yes to this any cold evening.

Changes include adding 1/4 tsp mustard flour, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp dried chives to flour mixture; added 1 smashed then minced clove of garlic to shallot; used Sophia's Greek Yogurt (a local 2% fat Greek yogurt) in place of sour cream, with a sprinkle of nutmeg (as for all cream dishes). I did double the sauce (measurements above then were doubled, too) and added , but wish I had either doubled the pasta and chicken or not doubled it at all.

Have fun with the recipe - you could add broccoli, peas, spinach, arugula, etc. to add some green to the dish. Use anything that will stand up to mustard, but not overpower it.

Quick, easy, flavorful, easy to adapt

Really Great w/ a few tweaks

The dish over all was a very tasty dish. I loved that each of the ingredients came out in each bite.
However, I doubled the sauce and it barely made enough for 4 of us.
For the non-mustard lovers don't look this over..I REALLY don't like mustard so I only added half of what it called for and it was delicious. The mustard flavor was still there but not overwhelming.

Overall delicious

mustard lover

I am a big fan of mustard, especially dijon and really grainy mustards. I could eat this dish every day. I used split breasts and pounded them flat, instead of cutlets. Everything else I did exactly as written. Even the kids loved this dish. The sauce is really rich, and we watch what we eat, so while I agree with others that doubling the sauce would be divine, I wouldn't do it myself because the calories would be through the roof. It was just the right amount to have a bit of pasta, a portion of chicken, and a reasonable amount of sauce for each serving.

mustardy, quick, easy, comforting, filling
