Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 40 minutes


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley


  1. In a shallow dish, combine the flour, salt, and black pepper. Dredge the chicken breasts in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, and cook until the onion is translucent and the garlic is fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the chicken broth to the skillet and bring to a simmer. Cook for 2 minutes, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.
  5. Stir in the heavy cream and Dijon mustard. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for
