A quick, healthy, delicious meal that is easy enough for a busy weeknight, but classy enough for Sunday dinner. So creamy and yummy! You will want to make this one over and over again. We have for quite a few years and I will say it’s one of my son’s favorites.
I know that I have been making a lot of dinner recipes lately, and I promise I have more up my sleeve than just chicken dinners. 🙂 But bare with me, I have a couple more to get written and then I will focus on some breakfasts, snacks, and treats. 🙂
So for this dish, I like to fillet the chicken into two thinner pieces so that it cooks quickly in a pan on the stove top. Like this:
Heat a large skillet to medium heat and add the butter. Once the butter is melted, add the chicken, seasoned with salt and pepper, and brown about 6-7 minutes on first side. Flip it over and cook another 5-6 minutes or so. Now add the chicken stock and spices, but not the mustard or yogurt yet. Turn the heat a little lower and cover to let simmer about 10 more minutes or so until cooked through.
When the chicken is cooked through, take the chicken out of the pan and let rest on a plate while you finish the sauce. Leave the heat on low for now. Add the mustard and mix thoroughly. Turn the heat off and add the yogurt and mix it until sauce is creamy and no lumps. It should make about a cup of sauce.
You can serve this alone with some steamed veggies, or over some rice, egg noodles, or potatoes. We’ve done all three and I love them all! My son’s favorite is with egg noodles but I love it over rice. 🙂 Tell me what you like best!
