Chicken with Creole Mustard Cream Sauce- boneless chicken breasts are cooked in a skillet and covered in a creole mustard sauce that has a lot of zip. This delicious southern dinner can be made in just 30 minutes.
The sauce is a mixture of chicken broth, heavy cream, creole mustard, honey, and thyme. Just a touch of honey adds a hint of sweetness to complement the spice of the mustard and cayenne pepper. There’s ample sauce for 3 to 4 chicken breasts.
What to Serve With Chicken with Creole Mustard Cream Sauce:
- Southern-Style Green Beans
- Buttered Rice
- Sauteed Spinach
- Roasted Asparagus
- Super Crispy Roasted Potatoes
For best flavor, use Creole mustard. I use Zatarains. Creole mustard has a grainy texture and is made from brown mustard seeds steeped in vinegar. It often contains horseradish for a little extra zip.
There’s a full 2 tablespoons of Creole mustard in the sauce for maximum flavor. You can reduce the mustard amount a little if you want less mustard taste.
You can increase the amount of honey if you want more of a honey mustard taste.
Skinless, boneless chicken thighs can be used instead of boneless chicken breasts if you wish.
This chicken dinner is a meal you will want to make over and over again. It is so easy and packed with flavor.
