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.

108 Reviews for Sauteed Chicken Breasts with Creamy Chive Sauce


I made this dish last night for a dinner party. Very easy to make. Chicken came out juicy and the sauce was light. Was a huge hit, even for my "picky eater" friend. Would recommend to anyone! Just make sure your skillet heat is up high enough to brown the chicken.

My grocery store actually had thin breasts already cut so I could avoid the first step!


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!

For those who prefer to cook without wine ( myself included) I always use a broth of some type or the other, no complaints from anyone.


This was a great comforting Sunday Meal. Made it with mashed potatoes and green beans. Yummy. Next time I would go a little lighter on the mustard as it was a little overpowering, not too bad, but I think it would be even better with a little less.


A delicious recipe! My husband is normally not a fan of dishes with cream sauce but absolutely loved this one and we will definitely make it again! The flavor is reminiscent of an old family recipe for "Creamed Wild Rabbit" which I've also made with grouse or chicken. I also appreciated that this is a low carbohydrate meal as I do count carbs.

NOTE: I did not have shallots available, but researched an appropriate substitution. I used two parts green onions and one part garlic and the taste was fabulous!
