Chicken Dijonaise

This recipe for Chicken Dijonaise was so good and so simple to make.  You can make it in about 30 to 40 minutes from start to finish.  I served it with a salad and mashed butternut squash.  What an easy, healthy recipe.  I am making this one again soon.  

This recipe came from a Better Homes and Gardens 30 Minute Dinners magazine.  I love reading recipes, I read magazines, cookbooks, and of course Pinterest, but simple, fast recipes are my favorites.  This one really fits the bill.  As you know, I don't really follow recipes, so this is my version.

Chicken Dijonaise


8 chicken thighs
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
8 TB butter
1/2 cup chopped green onions (I used freeze dried chives because I was in a hurry)
2/3 cup cream
1/2 cup white wine (I used moscato)
6 TB dijon mustard


Split the butter between two frying pans and melt

Mix the flour, salt, and pepper together.

Coat chicken with flour mixture.

Fry over medium high heat for 10 minutes on each side.

Remove chicken from skillet when done.  I placed them on a platter.

I put all of the drippings into one pan.

Next I added the chives and cooked for about 2 minutes in the drippings.

Next add the wine, cream, and dijon mustard.  Stir and cook for 1 to 2 minutes until smooth and slightly thickened.

Pour the dijonaise sauce over the chicken and serve.

I hope you like this recipe as much as we did.  Let me know what you think.

Have a great week.

    1. Hey Kim,
      I"m so happy that you like the recipe. I was really delicious. Let me know what you think.

  2. I just asked my hubby to try chicken thighs again ( he CLAIMS to not like them, but I think that is just silly!!! LOL). So was trying to come up with a very tempting recipe and this is it!!! Thank you so much - I'm going to make this tomorrow night! Pinning. I will let you know if he sees the error of his ways! Julia

    1. It is really good, but you could make it with boneless, skinless breasts if he's really opposed to thighs. I just don't like breasts as much as thighs. They tend to be a little drier. Thanks so much for pinning.
