Dijon Chicken Stew

November/December 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.6 (121 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.

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.

This was simple enought for everyday and elegant enough for company - assuming your guests like a green such as escarole.

What can I substitute for the white wine? Is a non-alcoholic cooking wine okay???

Sure. Or just use broth. To add some acidity, you can add a teaspoon of vinegar.

This was amazingly good! My husband, who usually can pick out the ingredients when he tastes, couldn't quite make out what was in this. He said that he never would have guessed dijon mustard.

The escarole was fun to work with and the chicken breasts (I will say that they came from our local gourmet/health food store) turned out tender and full of flavor from all of the different components that went into the broth.

I will make this again. On top of being a healthful and flavorful meal, it is also very pretty!

We served this with crusty rolls and Trader Joe's rosemary, oil asiago cheese. A great meal!!
