Thursday greetings, friends! I am sharing a yummy recipe today that makes for a great weeknight dinner because it’s fast and easy.Jump to Recipe
I know I’ve been sharing more recipes than usual lately; as you might know we are still locked down here in Germany (this is month six with possibly more to come). Stores are closed again except for essentials, so I just don’t have anything new to share with decorating right now. Thanks for bearing with me!
Dinner continues to be the focus of the day for my family (this will likely never change). While we’re sitting at the table eating, they often ask me what’s on the menu for the next day!
Creamy Mustard Chicken is a one-dish meal that everyone loves. The ingredients are pretty basic and I usually have them on hand.
Creamy Mustard Chicken
This one skillet meal is an easy weeknight favorite.
- 4 boneless chicken breasts (other cuts may be substituted)
- 2 shallots, diced
- 3/4 c dry white wine
- 1 c chicken stock
- 2 T whole grain mustard
- 2 T dijon mustard
- 1/4 c cream
- chopped fresh parsley
- olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper
Pat the chicken dry and season with salt and pepper.
Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat (I use a LeCreuset cast iron skillet for this recipe)
Sear the chicken, about 3 minutes on each side, then remove to a plate. (I like to cover it with foil to lock in the heat and juices).
Add the shallots to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes until softened.
Add wine and cook until reduced, scraping up any bits from the bottom of the skillet.
Add broth and whole grain mustard and bring to a simmer. Add the chicken and any juices to the pan and put it in the oven at 350° for 15-20 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
Remove the chicken to a platter and return the skillet to medium high heat. Add the dijon mustard and whisk in, then add the cream and whisk until warmed through.
Season with salt and pepper and serve with chopped parsley on top.
Serve with a baguette, green salad, and white wine.
This is actually what we’re having for dinner tonight. I’m about to walk down to the store and get a baguette and a bottle of white wine (I like chardonnay in this recipe). The walking to the store counteracts the bread and wine, fortunately!
Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks, Christy. I’ll try it. Sorry to hear you’re still locked down. Things are opening up here (California), and between that and the spring weather, we’re all feeling a profound sense of relief.
I am looking forward to warmer weather and think that will make a huge difference. The long winter/cloudy weather is pretty tough. Most Germans supplement with high doses of Vitamin D and we have done the same, but it’s no substitute for sunlight.Take care, Liz!
This looks delicious! Thanks for a new chicken recipe to try out.
I’m in Texas and feel like the hubs & I are pretty much the only people still staying home around here at this point, despite being vaccinated. I’m just having a hard time feeling comfy yet, but the warmer weather has really helped my mind lately!
Sending you happy vibes & hoping it lightens up a bit there soon!!
Thanks, Kas. Yes, the weather makes a huge difference in our metal outlooks, doesn’t it? I know that once we get some more sun and warmth I will feel a thousand times better. I can’t wait!
I so love your posts! I live in Palm Springs, California and things are looking much better. I am curious as to where you will be going when you come back to the USA. Moving so often as your family does is quite a undertaking. It will be back up in the mid 90s this week so the heat is on! Looking forward to your new adventures!
We probably have another year or two stationed over here, so my daughter and I will just be back for the summer and will stay with friends and family (I have a list of guest rooms I need to visit). Almost everyone is on the east coast, with the outliers in Tennessee and Michigan. We’ll be putting some miles on the car for sure.
I’m a little jealous of your nice weather but I know that ours will come very soon.
