Pinterest Food Try: Dijon Chicken

I love Pinterest for recipes, I have been pretty much exclusively cooking from my Food board and its been great. It's going to be especially helpful for when my friend and I start Whole 30 in the middle of next month (have you done that?).  This was pretty good...and easy - despite burning the almonds, breaking my favorite dish in the process and using normal mushrooms. Mark said it was a "no" as he had flash backs to initiation to his college society house when they had to stay up all night and eat disgusting food concoctions (where they made heavy use of dijon mustard)...oops.

(serves 4)

350 gram package fresh linguine, cooked
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup chanterelle mushrooms
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves minced garlic
Salt and pepper to season
1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds
4 oz. white wine
2 cups whipping cream
3 Tbsp Dijon mustard


Heat olive oil in a large heavy bottomed frying pan over medium low heat. Add chicken breasts, garlic, season with salt and pepper and continue to fry the chicken until completely cooked.
Remove chicken from pan and hold in a warm oven.

Add to the pan:
4 oz white wine and simmer until volume is reduced by half.

Then add:
2 cups whipping cream
3 tbsp Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to season.

Simmer until sauce thickens enough to coat a metal spoon. Return Chicken to the sauce, add the chanterelle mushrooms and simmer for an additional 2 minutes. Serve over cooked linguine. Sprinkle with toasted slivered almonds.

Wow! Whole 30 sounds pretty intense, and I know a thing or two about cutting certain food groups out of my diet. I did a similar diet for around 4 months when I was trying to get pregnant, the differences being that I could eat legumes (except soy products), gluten-free grains, and potatoes. You are probably already planning to do this, but the thing that helped me not slip is to prepare a meal plan for the whole week before going shopping. I wish you wonderful results!

I'm with Mark, no heavy Dijon. I used to make honey mustard chicken thighs with Dijon, honey and a little olive oil and Bryan wanted it so often I gag when I think about it now. I just downloaded the my fitness pal app and I'm sort of obsessed!
