Dijon Chicken Cutlets
Chicken cutlets served with a deliciously simple Dijon wine pan sauce.
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1/3 cups chopped fresh parsley
- Place chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper, and pound with a kitchen mallet or rolling pin until they are evenly about 1/4-inch thick.
- Heat butter and oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet; brown chicken pieces about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer chicken to a platter; keep warm and set aside.
- Sauté garlic for 15 seconds in skillet drippings; add the wine, water, mustard, dill weed, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and reduce volume by 1/2, stirring up the browned bits at the bottom of the skillet.
- Pour sauce over chicken cutlets. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
