Here's a sauce so delicious, it's missing only one thing: a little crunchy bread to dip in it. Make It a Meal: Serve with steamed asparagus or cauliflower, mashed potatoes or orzo pasta, and a glass of Vinho Verde.

very tasty!!! Will definitely make again. All of my family enjoyed it. Maybe not as much salt next time (was a little bit too salty).


very good!! I agree with a little less mustard b/c it goes a long way. Served with rice pilaf, the sauce with the rice was great.


I have made this recipe exactly as it appears and it is delicious--another time I didn't have the wine on hand so I used 2 oz. of gin to deglaze the pan (after sauteeing the shallots) and upped the amount of chicken broth a bit--so great!

Loved it

I love the recipe it was bursting with flavor... was unable to find any shallots but i used green onions... i omitted the the wine and added mushrooms and garlic to sauce just because i love them both and I ate the dish with mash potato... nice and filling but not heavy

Wow, yummy

This sauce was soooooooo good. I usually eat half a chicken breast but with this sauce I couldn't help but eat a whole breast to myself - with no shame! The only two things I omitted were the dry wine (because I'm underage, ha) and the chives, because I didn't have any. I also used green onions instead of shallots, but it was still delicious. I paired this with cauliflower mash and green beans and they really went well with the chicken and helped keep the overall meal a light and healthy one.
