Chicken in Dijon Sauce

with Balsamic Greens & Grapes plus Garlic Bread

With sweetness from grapes, crisp texture from lettuce, and buttery crunch from walnuts, it’s hard to beat a Waldorf salad. Typically, it’s all tossed in a creamy dressing, but tonight, we switch things up with a balsamic vinaigrette for a satisfying tang. We didn’t totally ditch the rich, creamy vibes, though—you’ll find those in a luscious Dijon sauce for pan-roasted chicken breasts. Alternate with bites of buttery garlic ciabatta, or use the bread to wipe up every last drop of sauce.

Chicken with Dijon Mustard Sauce

The perfect easy, weeknight meal, this chicken with mustard sauce is both delicious and quick! Special enough for the company, too.

chicken with dijon sauce

I’m sure I’m like most of you, with a handful of recipes in “regular rotation”. This is one that comes around often and it’s always satisfying. With both Dijon and grainy mustard, this is a one-skillet dish that’s a perfect, easy weeknight meal or special enough for entertaining.

Cook’s Notes

While I think everything is better with bacon if you don’t have or want to use it, simply skip it and replace the bacon fat with a bit of olive oil to start instead.

This dish is lovely with mashed potatoes, or try it with pasta, for a nice change.

If you don’t have or want to use wine in this dish, simply replace with chicken broth.

You could also make this dish with boneless chicken thighs or breasts or skin-on/bone-in chicken breasts. For boneless cuts, I would skip the trip to the oven and cook to done right in the skillet. For boneless chicken breasts, I would butterfly them to make thinner cutlets that will cook more quickly on the stove-top. Skin-on/bone-in chicken breasts should go in the oven and would take longer to cook, probably another 10 minutes or so.

Recipes like this often call for heavy cream because it’s high fat content doesn’t break or curdle when cooked at high temperatures or when cooked with acidic foods like mustard. So while it’s often tempting to reach for a lower fat cream (or yogurt, sour cream etc.), keep in mind that it may affect the quality of your finished sauce.

  • Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook, stirring until bacon starts to brown. Remove bacon to a small bowl. If you have more than about 1 Tbsp of bacon fat in the skillet, remove the excess. Add the onion to the skillet and cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the thyme leaves and cook, stirring, about 1 minute more. Remove the onion to the bowl with the bacon.

Add wine to pan and cook, stirring to scrape up any browned bits, for about 1 minute. Add the grainy mustard and cream to the pan and stir to combine. Return the chicken, bacon and onion to the pan and allow to cook with the sauce until chicken is re-warmed. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Serve garnished with additional fresh thyme leaves.
