Chicken With Creamy Parmesan Mustard Sauce
You know what's interesting these days? Based on several major food blogger's statistics, chicken and pasta recipes receive the most popularity on Facebook and other social media platforms. While I always try to come up with recipes that might not necessarily be trendy, they are sure mouthwatering. But since chicken is indeed most often bought and loved by most people type of meat, I decided to put together a chicken recipe that you'll absolutely love. And I'm pretty confident in that. You know why? Because it's based on my popular French Mustard Chicken Recipe, which people are crazy about for a reason. It's easy to prepare, super juicy, packed with flavors and so French.
Unlike my previous recipe, I wanted to simplify the process as much as possible and make it more suitable for a quick weeknight meal.
My French Mustard Chicken requires a little bit of braising in the oven. For this recipe all you need is one good skillet, stove top and less than 30 minutes of cooking time. And in the end you'll have the recipe that is twice as faster to make with flavors and taste preserved.
So let's get cooking.
First important ingredient that you need to have on hands is Crème Fraîche. It is very popular in French cuisine.
Crème Fraîche is what gives our recipe creaminess and reacher flavor that a regular cream.
You will also need good Dijon Mustard and Whole Grain Mustard. These 2 go side by side in cooking and contribute to a little tang and depth of color.
The sauce in this Chicken recipe comes out super silky, rich and out of this world delicious. If you're making a side dish to go along with chicken, make sure to drizzle that sauce all over your rice or pasta or whatever else you made. It's going to be yummy!
