This Chicken and Bacon in a Dijon Mustard Sauce recipe is out of this world, you may think there is a lot of fattening ingredients in this one pan dish, but you would be wrong. If you know me, you know that I like to balance my cooking. So if I’m adding an indulging ingredient into my cooking such as bacon, then I will make sure not add too many other ingredient that could take away from such flavours. This dish comes together beautiful in a mustard sauce that is not full of fat but rather flavour. Made with onions, Dijon mustard, lemon, apple cider vinegar and just the right seasonings that only enhance the dish not mask it.
I kid you not this recipe is pretty healthy for you, compared to other similar recipes out there which call for heavy cream, which I find ruins the dish. This recipe reminds me of a dish I tried many years ago, called Yassa Chicken (Poulet au Yassa) which is a very popular Senegalese dish. So in this dish we are basically merging the flavors from that traditional dish with some other amazing dishes that are more popular in Europe to come up with this unique and out of this world recipe. So follow along below for the most mouth-watering dinner that you are your family are sure to love, it’s definitely become one of our family favorites.
You must try this dish over a bed of egg-noodles, it gives it that German snitches feel without all the heaviness, and goes so well with the sauce. On a gluten free diet? No worries you can choose gluten free egg- noodles then you will have a completely gluten free meal.
Start by cooking your egg noodles first, because the rest takes less than 20 minutes to prepare and you want to be able to merge the two at the end. Next start with chopping the bacon and onions, and sauteing them together till cooked.
Be sure to remove the bacon and onions one cooked and set aside, before placing the chicken breasts back in the pan to saute the chicken. Saute the chicken on medium heat in the bacon fat till cooked, approx 10 minutes or until they are lightly browned and cooked in the center. Then remove the cooked chicken from the pan and finished off by making your dijon mustard sauce in the same pan. Merge everything back for one last time in the pan, allowing everything to simmer together before serving.
