This chicken breasts with mushroom and onion Dijon sauce recipe reminds me of a chicken recipe my mother used to make when I was a child, and to be honest it was my favorite dinner recipe. She used to cook it in a crock pot and it had tender boneless chicken, a mushroom sauce with lots of large mushrooms and a creamy sauce and rice, it really was delicious, cosy and the ultimate comfort food. This recipe is like a more modern version of that recipe. To make the creamy mushroom and onion Dijon sauce recipe you start by first cooking the boneless chicken till it's a nice golden brown, then heat the pan you used for the chicken and add the mushrooms and cook until they start to brown a nice color. You will add the mustards and wine and scrape up the bottom, adding the other ingredients till the sauce is cooked to perfection.

ms like the perfect combination of being efficient to cook, while also being healthy. Because chicken breasts are so lean in fact, the biggest concern is ending up with a dry dish, so you always want to focus on recipes that help maintain a moist, tender and flavorful meat. Recipes like this one will help ensure a lovely finished dish that locks in the moisture of the chicken. Of course sauces always help and we all love sauces and combining them with lean meats gives the healthy balance we're often looking to achieve.
