This recipe makes a delicious sauce to highlight sautéed chicken.  It was taught in our Bird is the Word: Chicken Breakdown 101 class, led by our Chef and Prepared Foods Manager, Rod Rehwinkel.


1 pound
chicken breast (boneless or thighs)
1/4 teaspoon
sea salt (or Kosher)
1/4 teaspoon
black pepper, ground
1 tablespoon
olive oil
2 tablespoons
1/4 cup
white wine
1/4 cup
stock, chicken
1/2 cup
heavy cream
2 tablespoons
Mustard, Dijon
1 tablespoon
tarragon, fresh


Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat sauté pan with olive oil to smoking point. Add chicken to pan and sauté until cooked through, about 10-12 minutes, turning once twice. Transfer cooked chicken to a plate and keep warm.

Deglaze sauté pan with wine and cook 2 minutes. Add chicken stock and continue to cook until liquid has reduced by half. Whisk in cream and Dijon mustard, cook for about 2 minutes until slightly thickened. Whisk in tarragon.

Add chicken back to pan and toss to coat. Serve chicken on plate and pour sauce over chicken as well.
