Chicken with Lemon and Robust Wholegrain Mustard Sauce

Cooking Directions

Serves: 4

Heat the oil and butter in a heavy based frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and sauté for 2 minutes or until golden brown, turn over and sauté for another 2-3 mins until the chicken is golden brown all over. Transfer to a plate.

Gently fry the onion and garlic over a medium heat, in the butter mixture left in the pan, until really soft, about 10 mins.

Add the wine and leave to bubble for a few mins.

Add the stock, bring to the boil and simmer for a minute.

Whisk in the cream, 2 tbsp Robust Wholegrain Mustard, lemon juice and half of the fresh tarragon, bring back to the boil and whisk thoroughly.

Return the chicken breasts to the pan, cook for 7-10 mins or until cooked through.

Scatter over the remaining tarragon and season to taste. Serve the chicken with the sauce and rice and steamed green beans.
