Chicken with Creamy Dijon Sauce

Chicken with Creamy Dijon Sauce

In the realm of quick dinners, this Chicken with Creamy Dijon Sauce is a total winner. Pair it with a simple, dark green salad of spinach or arugula for a phenomenal, nutritious meal that is almost too easy to prepare.

I’ve lightened this recipe, from traditional creamy chicken dishes, by using a small amount of coconut cream, rather than half and half, and by removing the noodles. I opted to serve this tender, flavorful chicken dish on a pile of arugula, though it would also pair well on a pile of veggie noodles.

Here are some veggie noodle recipes to try:

Creamy Pesto Noodles

Butter Zucchini Noodles

Butternut Squash Noodles

Asparagus Noodles with Lemon and Dill

Lemon and Basil Spaghetti Squash

Mexican Chile Pesto with Zucchini Angel Hair Pasta
