Chicken Breast with Mustard Tarragon Cream Sauce

Chicken Breast with Mustard Tarragon Cream Sauce


Here is a chicken dish that tastes like you spent a lot of time making but it really only takes about 30-45 minutes from start to finish.  Even if you do not like mustard this is still a hit.  It is really very light and you barely notice the mustard and and the fresh tarragon goes really well with the mustard and cream.  This literally is “Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner”!





1 Tbs Ghee

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

4 Chicken breast

1/4 cup chopped shallots

1 cup low-salt chicken broth

1/2 cup organic heavy (whipping) cream

3 tsp chopped fresh tarragon

1 Tbs Dijon mustard


Melt the ghee in  heavy large skillet over med-high heat. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Brown the chicken breast about 5 minutes on each side.  Transfer the brown chicken breast to a plate.

Add shallots to same skillet; reduce heat to medium-low. Sauté until soft, about 3 minutes.  Whisk in broth. Return chicken breast to skillet.  Cover and simmer until chicken is cooked, about 10-12 minutes. Transfer to chicken to platter.

In the skillet whisk cream, tarragon, and mustard into broth with shallots. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil until sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Pour sauce over chicken on platter and serve.
