Dijon Chicken is probably one of the very first “fancy” dinners I learned to make via the Food Network. I thought I was DA BOMB the first time I made it. There was pride bursting out of my pores.

How To Make Dijon Chicken

While Dijon Sauce is normally made with heavy cream or half & half, my version of it is with light sour cream and a nice helping of Worcestershire sauce. I love the robust, sweet and sour flavor that it adds to the sauce.

  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 5 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned.
  • Add mushrooms to the skillet and cook for 2 minutes until they start to soften.
  • Meanwhile, mix Worcestershire Sauce, sour cream, and Dijon mustard in a small bowl until smooth.
  • Spoon the Dijon sauce over the chicken and continue cooking for 2 to 3 minutes until heated through.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat, transfer the chicken and mushrooms to a serving plate, and garnish with chives.

    Serving Suggestions

    Dijon Chicken pairs beautifully with a variety of sides. It goes well with garlic parmesan roasted vegetables, mashed sweet potatoes, or even a simple green goddess salad. For a low-carb option, consider serving it with mashed cauliflower.

    Storing Leftovers

    • Leftover Dijon Chicken should be stored in an airtight container and kept refrigerated for 3 to 4 days.
    • While you can freeze this dish, the sour cream in the sauce may separate upon thawing; however, the taste will remain intact. Store it in an airtight container and consume it within 1 to 2 months.
    • Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.

      I made this recipe last night and my family was really delighted at how good it was. My husband had the leftovers for lunch and remarked that he hoped I saved the recipe 🙂 I didn’t have mushroom; but, other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Big flavor for so few ingredients!! I’ll be checking this site more often for recipes. Thank you!!
