  • 2 large chicken breasts cut in half lengthwise
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Flour for dredging
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon chopped poultry herb mix (sage/thyme/rosemary)
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream


  • Cut chicken in half lengthwise; sprinkle both sides with the garlic powder and salt & pepper, then dredge the chicken in the flour so it's completely coated.
  • Add the olive oil and butter to a skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken in when the pan is hot. Cook the chicken for 4-5 minutes/side or until it's nice and golden, then take the chicken out of the pan and set aside.
  • Add the white wine and mustard to the pan and stir thoroughly. Let it bubble for a couple of minutes.
  • Stir in the cream and herbs and add the chicken back into the pan. Let it simmer for another 5 minutes or so (you may need to turn the heat down), until the chicken is cooked though and the sauce is thickened. Season with extra salt & pepper if needed.


  • You can find poultry herb mix in the fresh herbs section of the grocery store (often refrigerated).
  • I recommend chopping the herbs as finely as possible for a smoother sauce.
