Today’s recipe is one of my all-time favorite chicken recipes. My mom made it when I still lived at home and I knew it was one of those recipes that I was going to take with me when I left home. It’s an easy recipe – meaning that it isn’t difficult to understand, though it does take a little more time than your typical chicken recipe.
This is a great dish to make when you want to impress your dinner guests. It looks difficult, sounds gourmet, and is bursting with flavor.
The chicken is dredged in a garlic/butter mixture and then breaded. You can either choose to bake the chicken (healthier and easier when cooking for a crowd) or you can sauté it on the stove. Generally, I take the “sauté” route because I’m lazy and can never remember to preheat the oven. Lame.
I made this meal twice during our gluten-free eating bout. Both times, I subbed cornstarch and gluten-free all purpose flour for the flour and breadcrumbs called for in the regular recipe (see below).
Three delicious components of the sauce: wine, mustard, and cream/milk.
If you haven’t noticed yet, we eat rice with pretty much anything.
Must be my Middle Eastern roots kicking in…
If you love chicken recipes as much as I do, check out these delicious recipes:
16 oz chicken breasts, butterflied (or thinly pounded) and seasoned with salt and pepper
Dip chicken in butter/garlic mixture quickly and pat with flour mixture. Lay on greased baking sheet (if choosing the bake method) OR in well-oiled skillet (skillet should have about 1 T butter/oil). Repeat with remaining chicken.
For baking – Bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
For stovetop – Saute on med-high heat until chicken cooks (about 8-10 minutes), adding more butter if necessary.
*since the flour mixture is the problem, I have revised the flour mixture to be gluten-free
1/4 c cornstarch
1/4 c Red Mill Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour
1/2 c walnuts
1/8 c sesame seeds
Preparation and execution of recipe is the same.
Dijon Cream Sauce
1 c heavy whipping cream OR milk
2 T dijon mustard
2 T red wine or dry sherry
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
Heat ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a light simmer for about 2 minutes and remove from the heat.
I know burgers are a “man’s food” but I have to admit that I could eat a burger every week and not get bored. And even though I love beef burgers, I’m not picky either – I’ll eat chicken, veggie (portobellos…mmmm), you name it. One of my favorite things to do is to play around…
I’m a huge fan of one-pot meals. One word: laziness. Since my kitchen always looks like a tornado blew through when I’m cooking, it’s nice to have a meal that minimizes the wreckage called dirty dishes. And so this meal is perfect. All ingredients go into one pot and you come away with only a handful of…
Another favorite spring 2017 trend: gingham. This red gingham dress is the best – it’s so comfortable and is completely on trend for the season. Gingham is hot right now and if you go check your favorite department store’s website and search for gingham, you’ll come up with a lot of results ranging from tops…
Say hello to only my second romper ever. I found this piece during a brief and unexpected shopping stint in Rome (I rarely ever shop when we travel) and I was thrilled at how well it fit. I’ve grown accustomed to ill-fitting rompers because of my height but this one seemed to flatter any shape….

Part II of our Paris trip (Part I HERE) ….I apologize for the overload of pictures in advance! One of the highlights of Paris was our trip to the Palace of Versailles. I cannot begin to tell you how amazing this place was and how enamored we were with it (having an antiques business does…
