Chicken with French Wine Mustard Sauce

Servings:  4

Prep time: 15

Cook time:  20

Fresh Ingredients:


2 lbs. boneless - skinless chicken breasts, filleted and pounded thin

1/3 cup heavy cream
2 tbsp unsalted butter

1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated

2 cups spinach, roughly chopped

2 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp grainy stone ground Dijon mustard

2 shallots, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced


Pantry Ingredients:


1 cup dry white wine, such as Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc
1/2 cup chicken stock

kosher salt and pepper

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 tbsp fresh thyme, minced




In a small bowl, combine the wine, milk/cream, both mustards, and a pinch each of salt and pepper.

 Rub the chicken with thyme, sage, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When the oil shimmers, add the chicken and sear until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Add the shallots and garlic, cook another 3 minutes, until fragrant.

Reduce the heat to low, pour in the wine/mustard sauce. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Stir in the parmesan and kale, cooking another 3-5 minutes

If the sauce thickens too much, add additional wine or chicken broth to thin.

For Serving: - Mashed potatoes or steamed rice, for serving.  Also amazing would be some pappardelle, or perhaps some orzo or farro.

Notes:  This dish is SOO freaking ugly, I will just have to make it again.  IDK what the hell I was thinking with the clunk ass mashed potatoes, although I do like them with a little body, these have wayyyy too much body.  The horror!  Actually we both love this dish, and I mean love it.   BUT I can and will make it look more appetizing, because if you even don't hate mustard a little bit (son in law gags) this dish is amazing and will be categorized as a Forever Recipe.
