Discover The Recipe

Dijon is the capital of Burgundy, the legendary wine-producing region in eastern France that produces some of the most sought-after wines in the world. Most also associate the name dijon with a French-style of prepared mustard, which originated in the same region. Traditional Dijon-style mustard is made by pureeing water-soaked mustard seeds with verjus, an acidic juice made from not-quite-ripe green grapes. Today, most dijon mustard is made with white wine, vinegar, and salt instead of verjus for a similar effect. In this recipe, inspired by the classic French dish Chicken Dijon, we use our unique French Dijon spice blend to make a mustard sauce that transforms everyday chicken breasts into Chicken Dijon - a weeknight meal worthy of a king. Whip up this mustard sauce in seconds.

Our flavorful mustard spice blend combines yellow mustard seeds with coriander, black pepper, and dried herbs basil and thyme. Use this sauce with any white fish instead of chicken, or as a base for salad vinaigrette instead. Find other alternatives in the Alternatives section below. Bon Appetit!

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless chicken thighs

  • 3/4 cup half and half

  • 1/4 cup dry white wine

  • 2 tbsp Piquant Post Dijon spice blend

  • 1/2 medium onion, finely diced

  • 4 tbsp oil (or any vegetable) oil, divided

  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, shredded

  • salt & pepper to taste (optional)

  • Fresh parsley, for garnish

Notes

When adding the white wine, use a wooden spoon or spatula to loosen any charred bits on the bottom of the skillet.

For a cheesier and creamier dish, use 1/2 cup parmesan cheese. For a lighter dish, use nonfat milk.

Lastly, optional ingredients add a little character and flavor but don’t sweat it if you don’t have them.

Instructions

 Season chicken with salt and pepper. Pre-heat a skillet or dutch oven on Med-High. Add 2 Tbsp oil and swirl to coat. Add chicken thighs to skillet and brown for ~5 mins per side. Remove chicken and set aside.

Add 2 Tbsp oil to skillet and continue heat at med-high. Add onions, stir fry for 3-4 minutes. Add Piquant Post Dijon Blend and stir fry for one minute, until fragrant. Add dry white wine, stir until evaporated.

Reduce heat to Med-Low. Add half and half and parmesan cheese. Stir to melt cheese and combine. Add chicken to the skillet. Gently simmer for 2 minutes, until cooked through.

Serve chicken with roasted potatoes, mixed greens, and/or crusty bread. Top with fresh parsley!
