Chicken with Mustard Cream Sauce

Mmm chicken...and I just rolled my eyes at myself. After gorging on Creamy Macaroni & Cheese for 2 days, and knowing the 4th was coming, I figured a simple chicken & brown rice dinner would be a smart idea. I found this recipe on Let's Dish Recipes and after seeing their delicious looking picture, I was sold. However, while my stomach was hungrily responding to the picture (see below), my brain forgot that I don't entirely love mustard.  If you don't like mustard, don't make this recipe.  

Let's Dish's Pic.
Overall, it was super simple and quick to make.  But, when something is simple,  my brain tells me I know what I'm doing. Let's just say it was a MIRACLE J didn't get food poisoning due to some undercooked chicken.  Note to self, check BOTH pieces of chicken before serving. 

Chicken with Mustard Cream Sauce
Serves: 2
Cook time according to Danelle at Let's Dish: Didn't say
Cook time according to Rachel: About 30 minutes
How difficult was this for Rachel to make? Easy

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp dried tarragon or oregano (I used oregano)
salt & pepper to taste

Note: minus the chicken, the recipe above is for 4 pieces of chicken. I made the extra sauce because it was recommended. Eh, not sure you really need all that sauce.


Add olive oil to skillet and preheat over medium-high heat.  Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add chicken to skillet & sauté until COOKED through 10-12 mins, turning once. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.  

The recipe calls for adding in the chicken broth without draining out the cooking oil. Well, it looked gross, so I drained the skillet before adding in the broth. Once broth has been added, whisk in cream, mustard and oregano. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes. So I had to use a wooden spoon bc my whisker was preoccupied in the washer...and my sauce didn't come out as thick. Make sure to whisk and not just stir.  Pour over chicken & enjoy!
