Creamy chicken with a hint of mustard tang is great served on your favorite pasta or rice.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup Mazola® Corn Oil
  • 2 cups thinly sliced leeks
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • ½ cup half and half
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Argo® Corn Starch
  • ½ teaspoon Spice Islands® Thyme
  • Chopped parsley

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Pat chicken breasts dry with paper towels; cut each breast into 2 to 3 pieces. Season with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Place half of the chicken in Dutch oven and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side or until nicely browned.
  2. 2 Remove chicken to platter and repeat with remaining chicken. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to the pan. Add leeks and garlic and cook over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until softened. Stir in chicken broth; bring to a boil stirring well to scrape any browned bits from bottom of pan. Add chicken back to the Dutch oven; cover and simmer 10 minutes. Mix half and half and corn starch together; add to Dutch oven along with Dijon mustard and thyme. Stir until thickened. Remove from heat and let sit 3 minutes. Transfer to serving platter and sprinkle with chopped, fresh parsley. Serve immediately with rice or noodles.

  3. Another great recipe from Mazola! It tasted just like the recipe states - creamy with a hint of mustard. I served it over egg noodles so I doubled the sauce because we like our noodles doused in sauce. I don't have a Dutch oven unfortunately so I just cooked it all in a deep skillet - Read more ...
