Mustard Chicken

This is a recipe I got from my Mum. It originally featured chicken stuffed with prunes but I've cut that bit out.

Time: 15 minutes preparation, 30 minutes to cook

Serves: 4



  • Spread the chicken generously with the Dijon mustard and leave to stand.
  • Put the onion and bacon in a frying pan and stir over a moderate heat until the onion has softened.
  • Stir in the flour and add the wine and stock and then reduce.
  • Mix the cream with the grainy mustard and vinegar, continue to reduce to a coating consistency.
  • Dip the chicken breasts in the seasoned flour.
  • Melt the butter in a frying pan and put in the chicken and fry to brown both sides.
  • Pour the sauce over the chicken in a casserole dish and cook for 20 minutes at 180ºC.
