Chicken With Mustard Cream Sauce

Chicken With Mustard Cream Sauce | casaveneracion.com

This chicken with mustard cream sauce is my idea of a pantry dish — a dish cooked with pantry staples. It’s an easy fix that enables a cook to whip up a delicious home cooked meal without having to make a last-minute trip to the market or the grocery. It is also a better alternative to frozen dinners, pizza delivery or serving something out of a can.

This dish is easy to make. All you need is a 1.5 kilogram chicken (split into halves), know how to brown meat properly (dredging the chicken in flour prior to browning is not necessary at all) and a recipe for the mustard and cream sauce (below). If you want to make your own mustard, get the recipe

Ingredients
  • 1 whole chicken cut into halves
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 to 3 cups cooking oil
  • mustard cream sauce (scroll down)
Instructions
  1. Rub the chicken halves all over with salt and pepper.
  2. Place in a covered container and keep in the fridge for a couple of hours.
  3. Heat the cooking oil in a frying pan large enough to accommodate the chicken halves side by side without overcrowding.
  4. Lower the chicken halves in the hot oil, skin side down. Fry over high heat until nicely browned and the skins have puffed, about 7 minutes. Flip to brown the other side.
  5. Lift the chickens with a kitchen spider or tongs and move to a plate. Pour off the oil.
  6. Return the chicken halves to the frying pan. Pour in the mustard cream sauce followed by about half a cup of water.
  7. Stir everything gently but thoroughly.
  8. Bring to a simmer. Cover and braise the chicken halves for about 15 minutes, flipping them over halfway through the cooking time.
  9. Serve the chicken surrounded by the mustard cream sauce.
  10. Optionally, garnish with thinly sliced mint leaves.
