How To Make creamy dijon chicken

  • 1
    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season with a generous amount of kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper. Melt the butter and heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown the chicken on both sides until the chicken is cooked through; about 3 minutes per side. Plate and cover to keep warm.
  • 2
    Heat a little more oil in the skillet if needed and cook the onion until soft and lightly browned. Reduce the heat to low and add the garlic to the skillet with the onions cooking for 1 minute while stirring constantly.
  • 3
    Add the chicken broth to the skillet with the onions and garlic. Stir and scrape the bottom of the skillet to loosen the brown bits. Simmer for 3-4 minutes. Whisk in the Dijon mustard and cream. Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add the peas, fresh thyme, and fresh rosemary. Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Return the cooked chicken back to the sauce and simmer until warm.
