Chicken with Dijon Wine Cream Sauce is a delicious chicken dish cooked in one skillet.  Chicken breasts are sauteed until fully cooked and served with a light mustard cream sauce made with 4 ingredients.  Mouthwatering and delightful, ready in less than 30 minutes, this chicken dish will make a great dinner.

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 since I had a similar dish in a little charming bistro restaurant while visiting Prague, I loved it so much, I went back a few times and ordered the same dish every time.  At that moment, I knew I had to make it.

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!

Easy to make and makes an elegant dish, the only thing missing was a glass of Pinot Grigio to go with it!

Serve it with your favorite steamed vegetables, or even with roasted baby potatoes as I did.  This chicken recipe would be great also served with a side of our easy garlic mashed potatoes, or even with our moms best mashed potato pie and spoon some of that amazing cream sauce over them.  YUM!!

 

 

Ingredients Needed to Make Chicken with Dijon Wine Cream Sauce:

  • 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

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Let’s Make this Chicken Dish!

    1.  First, lightly season the breasts with salt and black pepper.

  • Add olive oil to a 10-inch skillet, and add the chicken.  Saute the chicken on medium heat until they turn golden brown on both sides, and are fully cooked, about 10 to 13 minutes.  You may cover your pan with a splatter screen while sauteing to keep the oil from splattering all over.

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

       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, then pour in the heavy cream.

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

          4.  Stir the sauce. 

  • 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!

 

The Dijon wine cream sauce is what makes the chicken so flavorful!  The aromatic flavor from fresh thyme infused with the Dijon mustard and cream is what makes this dish so tasty.

Not only is the sauce so flavorful, it presents an elegant appearance too!  It’s definitely company-worthy.  And it’s easy clean-up!

 

HERE’s A 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 come right off.
