I hear from a lot of family and friends that they just don’t feel comfortable in the kitchen. Which is odd to me, because the kitchen is my comfort place. The heat of the stove and a glass of wine in hand just lead me to my zen after a long day of work.
The reasons I’ve heard for not feeling comfortable in the kitchen vary:
- “I’m not a good cook.”
- “My family won’t like it.”
- “It takes too long.”
- “Recipes confuse me.”
- “I hate doing dishes.”
I’m certain that with this recipe for One Skillet Chicken with White Wine & Mustard Cream Sauce in hand, you can vanish all those thoughts from your head. Why?
- It’s super easy – Even a novice cook can master this recipe.
- Everyone loves this dish – Chicken, bacon, cream sauce – It’s a crowd pleaser!
- Just 30 minutes is all it takes to make this yummy dish.
- As mentioned before – It’s EASY!
- It all cooks together in one-skillet. Meaning less dirty dishes.
I’m calling this dish the New Comfort Food – Food that lets you get comfortable with cooking.
While the traditional meaning of comfort food was rich, heavy dishes, like Macaroni and Cheese, Short Ribs, or Osso Buco, there’s no reason that we can’t define comfort food in a new way. I want all you non-believers out there to give this one a shot. Turn on some music, pour a glass of Chardonnay (it’ll go perfectly with the amazing dish you’re about to prepare), and heat that skillet to medium-high.
When you’re cooking a simple dish, it’s important to use high-quality ingredients, that will really shine through. Of course, the chicken is the star of this dish. I’m using free-range boneless, skin-on chicken thighs. However, feel free to substitute in your favorite cut of chicken – Boneless, skinless, chicken breasts work equally as well in this recipe.
So, all of you non-believers out there… I promise this recipe will be an instant ego-boost in the kitchen. Promise. It’s time to get comfortable in the kitchen. The wine helps… Just serve this simple dinner up with some white rice and a peppery green salad and you’re good to go.
One Skillet Chicken with White Wine & Mustard Cream Sauce
- 2 pound chicken thighs skin on, boneless
- 3/4 cup Dijon mustard divided
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- 4 slices bacon
- 1 cup dry vermouth or white wine
- 1 Tablespoon whole grain mustard
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 6 sprigs fresh thyme
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a small bowl, mix together 1/2 cup Dijon, paprika, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Rub the mixture onto your chicken thighs and set aside.
- Chop the bacon and add it to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Allow to become browned and crispy, and then removed with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towels. Drain half the grease from the skillet.
- To the skillet, add the chicken. Allow to cook for approximately 4-5 minutes per side, until browned. Remove from skillet and set aside with the bacon.
- Pour the wine into the skillet and scrape up any golden bits with a wooden spoon. Add the remaining Dijon, whole grain mustard, and sour cream. Return the bacon and chicken to the skillet and top with sprigs of fresh thyme.
- Reduce heat to low, cover the skillet, and allow to cook for 15-20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
