Creamy Dijon Chicken Recipe

5 minutes + 20 minutes cooking


4 servings

This Creamy Dijon Chicken recipe is extremely fast, full of flavors and budget friendly. I like to serve it with brown rice, noodles or fried gnocchi which makes it perfect weeknight dinner! As a bonus, the chicken cutlets and the sauce are all cooked in the same skillet, making clean-up a breeze.

This dish is a true weeknight meal! It is ready in less than 30 minutes from start to finish. The key is the use of thin chicken breasts, which cook just a few minutes on the stove and save you a lot of time. And the sauce? A few ingredients that come together in a few minutes and the creamy sauce is ready. Believe me, it couldn’t possibly be easier. There is just one more thing to say – It is important to use quality dijon mustard and good wine.
