Chicken with Dijon Mustard Sauce is a fast, easy, 20 minute dinner recipe packed with flavor. Chicken breasts are sautéed to perfection before a creamy dijon sauce is made in the same pan in this one pot wonder dinner!


Units Scale
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 6 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 3 teaspoons oregano


  1. Trim chicken and pound to an even thickness if needed. Season liberally with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook 10-12 minutes, flipping once, or until cooked through.
  3. Remove chicken from the pan and set aside. Add chicken broth and scrape the bottom of the pan to deglaze.
  4. Whisk in heavy cream and oregano and bring to a simmer. Cook 2 minutes, stirring often.
  5. Return chicken and any juices to the pan. Stir, and serve.
