Are you looking for a way to make chicken breasts more exciting, more gourmet? You will absolutely love this dish. Tastes like slow food, but can be made in mere minutes.

Boneless chicken breasts can be boring, tasteless and bland. A mustard cream sauce, however, brings flair and flavor and turns a quick dinner into something you should eat slowly with a glass of wine.

I haven’t talked about the twins who just turned 16 and are doing a hybrid home school program this year. They are here for lunch a few days a week helping me in the bakery. I recently served this chicken (which I’ve made three times in the past week) over pasta for them and they loved it.

I’ve used boneless chicken breasts. Pound the chicken out to flatten, season with salt and pepper and cut it into serving pieces. I’ve fried in butter with a little oil.
