This recipe calls for chicken cutlets. If you can't find them, just use boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 4-oz. pieces.

How to Make CREAMY MUSTARD CHICKEN & PASTA

Step-by-Step

  • 1Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions; drain.
  • 2Sprinkle chicken with garlic powder and 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper. Place flour in a shallow bowl and coat both sides of the chicken, shaking off any excess. Reserve 2 tsp. flour; discard the rest.
  • 3Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken, turning once, until golden brown and cooked through, 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a clean plate.
  • 4Reduce heat to medium and add the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil to the pan. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, about 1 minute. Add the wine and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute. Combine water with the reserved 2 tsp. flour. Add to the pan and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat; stir in sour cream, mustard, 2 Tbsp. sage and the remaining 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper. Return the chicken to the pan and turn to coat with the sauce.
  • 5Top the pasta with half the sauce, the chicken, and then the remaining sauce. Garnish with some more sage, if desired.
