A sophisticated blend of mustards, cream, and vermouth give this relatively easy chicken dish a wonderfully unique flavor.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cubed
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 shallot, chopped
- 1/2 cup dry vermouth
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons stone ground mustard
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
- 1 lemon, juice and pulp
In a large, resealable plastic bag, mix flour, salt, and pepper. Place cubed chicken in the bag, and shake to coat.
Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat, and saute the chicken until browned. Remove chicken from the skillet and set aside.
Stir shallot into the skillet, and saute until tender. Mix in vermouth, chicken broth, Dijon mustard, and stone ground mustard.
Return chicken to the skillet, and blend in the heavy cream. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer about 15 minutes, until the vermouth mixture has thickened. Mix in parsley, lemon juice, and lemon pulp just before serving.
