Chicken in Onion and Mustard Sauce

Chicken in Onion and Mustard Sauce

sonnet 0

"Surprisingly mild and easy to make, this dish takes to substitutions well depending on what you have in the house. Despite the name, even my young children enjoy this chicken! It's quick, easy, and something different for dinner. Apple juice may be substituted for the applesauce and wine. Grainy, spicier mustards will create a spicier sauce; mild or sweet mustards will create a milder sauce."

  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Season the chicken on both sides with pepper; cook the chicken breasts in the butter until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 6 to 7 minutes each side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove the breasts from the pan and set aside.
  2. Stir together the onion, parsley, applesauce, wine, mustard, and half-and-half in the pan; bring the mixture to a boil and cook about 5 minutes. Return the chicken to the pan; add the walnuts. Allow to cook until the chicken is warm, 3 to 5 minutes.

I used the ingredients and amounts in the recipe, except for using two chicken breasts. I pounded them lightly to make for equal thickness, and an instant-read thermometer reached 180 degrees in...

Pretty good! Definately use a red onion, it gives a little bit of sweet to offset the strong mustard! I used dijon mustard, and it was still quite pungent. Maybe using less mustard, and somehow ...

Made this for supper the other night and already had the chicken cooking when I realized I didn't have any applesauce. I used peanut butter instead and hoped for the best. It still turned out pr...

I've been looking to add a little excitement to chicken and thought this recipe was outstanding. The only change I made was to leave out the walnuts as I'm not a fan. Thanks for sharing, I wil...

This was really good. Slightly sweet from the onion but also savory. The sauce was thicker than I thought it would be - a nice consistency.

This is so good! Great flavor. My husband loves chicken w/ apple or mustard and this combines both of those very well.

Loved it! Great taste. Can take or leave the walnuts though.

I made 2 small changes - I lightly coated the chicken in flour to help it brown and create a nice visual contrast with the sauce and I changed the fat to half butter half olive oil. I then doubl...

Followed recipe as written. Very strange taste, not at all to my or my familys liking. Definitely would not make again.
