Mustard Chicken Recipe

This one pot mustard chicken recipe makes a great homemade meal for date night or any special occasion. Plus it’s easy clean-up, which is always a bonus!

Today’s recipe is a favorite from one of my very favorite cookbooks, My Paris Kitchenfrom David Lebovitz. I made some slight changes, but the overall flavor remains the same. It’s a winner every dang time, and this sauce is SO VERY CRAVE WORTHY. 

We’re making Dijon Mustard Chicken Thighs in a skillet, along with bacon, white wine, and cream. You really can’t go wrong with chicken and bacon, especially when it’s cooked in a delicious sauce, all in one skillet. That means you get an incredibly tasty dinner, and you don’t have to waste any time with unnecessary dishes or balancing multiples recipes at once.

Keep in mind, you can use chicken breasts for this recipe if you prefer that over chicken thighs. Both work just fine, but thighs will make it extra juicy and delicious!

How to Make Mustard Chicken and Bacon

Be sure to check the recipe card for the full, detailed recipe and ingredients list. But I want to show you quickly how easy this dijon mustard chicken recipe is!

  1. Start by making the mustard chicken marinade (dijon, paprika, salt & pepper), then fully coat the chicken (you can use thighs or breast) in the mixture.
  2. Place chicken in resealable bags, then let them marinate in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours (the longer the better, but you can cut down the time if needed).
  3. When you’re ready to cook, add bacon to your skillet and cook until crispy, then remove bacon from the skillet and set it aside.
  4. Next, cook the chicken in the skillet for about 4-5 minutes (it won’t be fully cooked just yet), then set it aside with the bacon.
  5. Now add the wine into the skillet, and mix in the dijon, whole grain mustard, and heavy cream.
  6. Place the chicken and bacon back in the pan, and let everything simmer for about 15- 20 minutes.

I just love the way this chicken comes out full of flavor. The sauce is really just SO amazing. Be sure to drizzle any extra back over the chicken, or drizzle it over rice or veggies on the side.
