Creamy Mustard Chicken Recipe

Chicken filet covered in creamy mustard sauce

Not too long ago, I shared one of my favorite beef recipes. Today, I’m going to share one of my favorite chicken recipes.

When I need an easy dinner that won’t take much time, this creamy mustard chicken recipe is one that I make pretty regularly because it checks all the boxes.

This recipe is so simple to make! You just brown the chicken and make a simple sauce to go on top. That’s it!

It’s also super tasty. My kids would tell you that they don’t like mustard, but they do like this chicken. You can taste the mustard in the sauce, but the cream really mellows some of the bite.

This chicken is also made from ingredients that I normally have on hand, which makes it great for busy weeknights when I don’t want to make a trip to the grocery store before making dinner.

To round out the meal, I usually serve this chicken with a simple green salad and some multigrain bread. It’s a yummy dinner that’s good any time of year!
