With the summer winding down and kids going back to school many of you have been asking for quick and easy recipes with a bonus if it is budget-friendly.

Well, my friends, it doesn’t get much easier or more affordable than this Creamy Mustard Chicken.

Bonus is that it clocks in at only 3 net carbs per serving!

When you want to boost the flavor in a dish mustard is a great way to do it. I didn’t use it for many years because my youngest hated mustard. If she even saw me touch the mustard while cooking she wouldn’t eat it.

She didn’t get the nickname Miss Picky Pants for nothing!

Fast forward a few years and now she loves it. Not to eat on a sandwich, but as an ingredient in a recipe.

I even sent this recipe to her to test out for me and she and her boyfriend both gave it a thumbs up. He is a chef so that of course made me uber happy!

Mustard is also naturally low carb so if you are counting those little suckers it is again a fabulous ingredient to use.

You can use whatever mustard you prefer in this recipe. I have used Dijon and whole grain, but there are some tasty specialty mustards out there I am sure would be just as delicious if not more so.

Pat the chicken thighs dry with a paper towel and season well with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. Cook the chicken for 5-6 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through, then remove with tongs to a plate.STEP 2

Lower the heat to medium and add the butter to the skillet.STEP 3

Cook the onions for 5-6 minutes until soft and translucent, add the garlic during the last minute. STEP 4

Pour in the bone broth and stir to remove any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet, then simmer to reduce for about 3 minutes.STEP 5

Stir in mustard, heavy cream, lemon juice, and thyme leaves. Taste the sauce and add salt and pepper if needed.STEP 6

Add the chicken back to the skillet to cook for a minute or two to warm. Serve garnished with fresh parsley.

Can I use chicken breasts instead of chicken thighs?

Yes, you can use chicken breasts or even bone in skin on chicken thighs. I use the boneless skinless thighs because they are the most forgiving as far as price and dryness are concerned. Just make sure your chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Can I use white wine instead of chicken bone broth?

Yes, you want to make sure to cook the wine off for a few minutes after you add it to remove the alcohol. Also, be aware of the change to the nutritional info if you are counting carbs.Can I make this Creamy Mustard Chicken dairy-free?

Absolutely! Just substitute a dairy-free butter and canned coconut milk (it is thicker than the cartoned options).How do I store the leftover Creamy Mustard Chicken?

You can store your leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, or in the freezer for up to 4 months.

Last thoughts about Creamy Mustard Chicken

This recipe is honestly one of the recipes I keep in my back pocket for company. 

Not that the family doesn’t deserve a delicious meal, and they do get this quite often. It is just that this is one of those recipes that tastes amazing but doesn’t take a ton of ingredients, dishes, or time to make.

It is literally a one-pot wonder that takes less than 30 minutes to make.

How can you go wrong with that??The Mr likes to refer to it as “fancy”.

I served it to him over mashed cauliflower with a nice salad on the side and he said he felt like he was eating at a restaurant.

Gotta love that guy!!
