About

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:

Garlic Noodles

Creamy Pesto Noodles

Buttered Zucchini Noodles

Butternut Squash Noodles

Asparagus Noodles with Lemon and Dill

Lemon And Basil Spaghetti Squash

Mexican-Chile Pesto with Zucchini Angel Hair Pasta

Spicy Green Pasta

Real Healthy Pasta Salad


Serves 8

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1½ teaspoons garlic, minced

1 cup brandy

2 tablespoons dijon mustard

1 tablespoon whole grain mustard

¼ cup coconut cream

2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, minced


Directions
1

Slice the chicken breasts in half, lengthwise, to create 8 thin pieces. Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.

2

Place both oils in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until browned on both sides and cooked through. Set the chicken aside on a plate.

3

Reduce the heat to medium and add the garlic. Sauté for until fragrant but not browned. Pour in the brandy and simmer until reduce by half.

4

Mix in the mustards, cream and broth. Add more cream or broth if the sauce is too thick. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

5

Add the chicken back to the skillet, covered in the sauce. Simmer for a couple of minutes. Sprinkle with rosemary. Serve the chicken with spoonful of sauce. Enjoy!
