Dijon Chicken Stew

November/December 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (65 votes)

This satisfying stew stars chunks of chicken and tender braised escarole in a flavorful Dijon wine sauce. Try it with boneless, skinless chicken thighs or pork tenderloin, if you prefer. It doubles easily in the same pot. Serve with rustic whole-grain bread.

A huge success

This is a great recipe to work with if you don't have the exact ingredients. I, too, didn't use escarole. Instead of that, I used potatoes, carrots, kale & artichoke hearts. The organic previously frozen chicken breasts were tender- I wouldn't use thighs. Even my somewhat picky husband and son liked it. I'll definetely make it again.

Too many flavors

I followed the recipe to a "T" as well. I am an excellent cook. But, first, the concept of "stewing" breast meat chicken and escarole will dry out the meat, and the escarole will just get bitter. Plus, there was way too much wine, mustard, rosemary, etc. and these flavors just all opposed each other in a negative way. I would consider modifying the recipe (like, 1/4 cup of wine, half as much mustard) but I still have an issue with cooking white meat chicken in a "stew" broth. Thigh meat would be better for sure, and not cut in chunks, but torn apart to be more tender and flavorful. This really should be made quickly when it comes to the chicken and escarole, so the name "stew" really is wrong for this recipe. Very bitter and nasty tasting.

great concept, but

I also used baby spinach because escarole wasn't available. Likewise...I only had thighs on hand. Added more chicken stock, cooked thighs for a bit, removed and added arborio rice. Returned the chicken to the pot. It was a very satisfying meal! Good taste and even the picky eater ate it.

My grocery store did not have escarole, so I made it with baby spinach instead. It was so good that I had to stop myself from going back for seconds. The favors intermingled perfectly. I paired it with a whole wheat roll and it was incredibly filling. I will be making this again for sure.
