These days, I’m always looking for new ways to make dinner with chicken breasts or chicken cutlets that are quick, easy, and big on flavor.

I rarely make cream sauces for chicken. 

But I remembered a chicken dish I had ordered in a little charming bistro restaurant while visiting Prague, it was so delicious, I ordered the same dish every time.  

At that moment, I knew I had to try this recipe at home.

Chicken with Dijon Wine Cream Sauce is a delicious meal. 

I came across this recipe for chicken with mustard cream sauce in an old cookbook, Everyday Food: Great Food Fast.  But, of course, I added my own little twist to it, adding in the wine and fresh thyme as the herb. 

And let me tell you, it turned out fantastic!

Serve it with your favorite steamed vegetables.  Try it with our roasted baby potatoes as I did here.  YUM!!

Ingredients Needed to Make Chicken with Dijon Wine Cream Sauce…

For our recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

  • boneless chicken breasts
  • seasonings:  salt and fresh cracked black pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • white wine
  • heavy cream
  • sprigs of fresh thyme
  • course ground Dijon mustard

How to Make Chicken with Dijon Sauce?

There are 4 easy-to-follow steps to this recipe:

1. First STEP: Lightly season the breasts with salt and black pepper.

a.) Add olive oil to an 9 or 10-inch skillet, and add the chicken.  Sauté the chicken on medium heat until they turn golden brown on both sides, and are fully cooked about 10 to 13 minutes. 

QUICK TIP: You may cover your pan with a splatter screen while sautéing to keep the oil from splattering all over.

b.) Remove the chicken and transfer to a serving platter, or to individual dinner plates.  Cover with foil wrap to keep warm.

2. STEP 2:  Pour in the wine and deglaze the pan. 

Stir the wine with a wooden spoon, and deglaze and scrape all the bits on the bottom of the skillet.     

Simmer the wine for about 1 minute or so, until it reduces. Then pour in the heavy cream.

3. STEP 3:  Add in fresh thyme, and course-ground Dijon mustard.

QUICK TIP: To remove thyme leaves from each sprig, hold at the tip of the sprig and pull your fingers down over the stem.  The leaves will come right off.

4. FINAL STEP 4:  Simmer the sauce. 

Stir and simmer on low heat for 2 minutes, until the sauce thickens a little.  Turn off the heat and spoon over the chicken.  Then serve!
