I found this recipe over 15 years ago and lost it. Found it here again. It is so good served over rice!

My variations:
I cut up the chicken in small pieces before I saute in butter. I do not strain out the onion, I like the extra flavor the onion adds to the dish. When the sauce comes to a steady boil (mustard mixture and whipping cream) I add the spices so the sauce can absorb them better. When the sauce thickens, I put the chicken back in for a few minutes and serve over rice.
**You can substitute apple juice for the wine
