Step by Step Method

Step 1

Whisk together the flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Dredge both sides of the chicken in the flour mixture. Set aside.

Step 2

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in the chicken and sear on both sides until golden. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 3

Add in the remaining butter and shallots. Saute until the shallots soften.

Step 4

Add in the wine, and cook until evaporated, scraping the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.

Step 5

Add in the chicken broth, mustard, heavy cream, salt and pepper.

Step 6

Stir to combine and simmer for 2-3 minutes until the sauce slightly thickens. Add the chicken back into the skillet. Cook, until the sauce thickens and the chicken is warmed through. Sprinkle with parsley and serve!

Deliciously tender and nice flavor. Made these chicken thighs last night to accompany my squash casserole and some creamed spinach. Hubby really enjoyed them.

Yum. Good chicken. It was simple and good. I used onions rather than shallots because I had those on hand. And I garnished with basil which worked really well with the Dijon. The sauce was really good. Thanks for sharing this nice keeper, Michele.
