French Dijon Chicken

What's The Big Idea?

The area around Dijon in France is obviously well-known for its mustard, but much more besides. It borders on the famous Bourgogne wine-producing region, and is the home to a huge international food and wine festival every autumn.

While it includes Dijon mustard and several other classic French ingredients, I'm not sure how authentic this recipe is, but it's certainly tasty, so give it a go!

Shopping List

Here's the list of what you need:

  • 4 large chicken pieces (breasts, drumsticks, etc)
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 5 large mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon dried Herbes de Provence
  • 120ml French dry white wine
  • 60ml double cream
  • 1-2 tablespoons (depending on your taste) Dijon mustard

What To Do

  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the butter and olive oil in a frying pan or similar item that has a lid
  • Fry the chicken until browned on all sides
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and add the mushrooms. Fry, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes
  • Return the chicken to the pan, and add the herbs and wine. Cover the pan tightly and cook on low heat for 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked to your liking
  • Remove the chicken to a serving plate and keep warm. Stir the mustard and cream into the sauce that is left in the pan
  • Warm over a low heat for 5 minutes, then pour over chicken to serve
