The sauce is what makes this dish so special. It’s extra creamy, rich, and loaded with mushrooms.

I used Perdue Signature Chicken Stock to create a bold, flavorful sauce. Their stock can be found in the refrigerated section of your local grocery store. It’s preservative-free, antibiotic-free, and contains no artificial flavors. Each box is packaged with a side window so you can see just how much stock is left. Their stock is a gorgeous golden color that tastes homemade.

The sauce is a combination of white wine, chicken stock, dijon mustard, whole-grain mustard, portobello mushrooms, capers, and cream. It’s velvety smooth and extra creamy.

I like to serve this dish over rice or with a side of egg noodles.

Creamy Dijon Chicken with Mushrooms

Tender chicken breasts served in a robust dijon cream sauce loaded with meaty portobello mushrooms.

Yield: 4 chicken breasts

Total Time: 30 minutes

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 8-ounces sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup white wine (I used Pinot Grigio)
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 1/2 cup half and half

 

 

Directions:

  1. Heat olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat.
  2. Sprinkle both sides of each chicken breast with salt and pepper. Place the chicken gently in the pan. Cook for 5-7 minutes on each side, or until a thermometer inserted in the center reads 160 degrees F.
  3. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside. Place 2 tablespoons of butter in the pan. Add onion, mushrooms, and red pepper flakes to the pan with the butter. Give the mixture a stir. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent and mushrooms are brown and tender, about 5 minutes (refrain from salting the dish until the end).
  4. Add the wine and reduce by half, about 3 minutes. Stir in chicken stock, dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, and capers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture reduces slightly, about 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in half and half. Allow the mixture to thicken slightly, about 3 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place the chicken back in the pan and cook to warm through for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Serve over rice, egg noodles, or mashed potatoes.
