I like to try different ingredients with chicken as it’s so versatile and I’m a huge fan of Dijon mustard so this recipe is a winner for me.
This is a simple recipe that ends up being a savory gratifying dish. The Dijon mustard, chives and lemon juice add a piquant flavor to the chicken cooked with the mushrooms. A tablespoon of capers adds a bold taste.
Serve with a crunchy salad and cheese grits for a fast mouthwatering weeknight meal. Chicken breast Dijon has the best taste ever!
