Recipe of the day ::: Sauteed Chicken in Mustard Cream Sauce.

Whenever I'm in the mood for cooking, I always look for quick and simple recipes with ingredients I can simply pull out from the fridge. I find this recipe below to be the perfect fit after you come home from work and crave for a home-cooked meal.


Recipe and picture taken from Martha Stewart.

Prep: 20 minutes
Total: 20 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4)

* 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6 ounces each)
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon pepper
* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 1/4 cup dry white wine, or chicken broth
* 1/2 cup heavy cream
* 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
* 1 teaspoon dried tarragon (or 1 tablespoon chopped fresh)

  1. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; saute until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes, turning once. Transfer to a plate; keep warm.
  2. Pour wine into hot skillet; cook, stirring, until reduced by half, about 1 minute. Whisk in cream, mustard, and tarragon. Cook, whisking, until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  3. Pour any accumulated chicken juices into sauce. Right before serving, drizzle cream sauce over chicken.
