Like my Chicken with Creamy Garlic Herb Sauce or Bacon Pasta Carbonara, this Chicken with Dijon Sauce is a 20-minute, one-pot meal that you’re going to want on regular rotation. It is fast and delicious, and did I mention EASY??

Why I love this recipe

There is so much flavor in the mustard cream sauce and the chicken is nice and juicy.

It is also low-carb, keto-friendly, and gluten-free so it is one of my go-to easy chicken recipes when I have guests with dietary restrictions. (Plus it’s so fast, it is perfect for when you have company!)


  • boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • chicken broth
  • heavy cream
  • dijon mustard
  • oregano

Step by step

  1. Trim chicken breasts and if necessary pound them to an even thickness. Season liberally with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and add chicken. Cook until chicken is cooked through, flipping once, about 10-12 minutes.
  3. Remove chicken from pan. Add chicken broth to the pan and scrape the bottom of the pan to deglaze and get all those flavorful brown bits into your sauce.
  4. Add heavy cream, dijon, and oregano. Whisk to mix and simmer 2 minutes.
  5. Return chicken and any juices to the pan, stir, and serve.

  • you may substitute white wine for the chicken broth if desired
  • use chicken thighs or chicken cutlets instead of chicken breasts
  • garnish with fresh herbs, I often use fresh parsley or thyme
  • experiment with different types of mustards
  • add cooked and crumbled bacon to the sauce before serving

Serving suggestions

This chicken recipe makes plenty of sauce so you can serve it over egg noodles, roasted potatoes, rice, or almost any starch. My husband’s favorite is serving it over mashed potatoes, while I prefer pasta myself!

Important Note About the Sauce

This recipe makes a generous amount of sauce. If you do not want as much you can easily cut it in half or even in third. Our family likes the extra sauce for serving over pasta, potatoes, rice, etc.

There is also enough sauce that you could add an extra chicken breast or two if your pan will fit it (or cook in batches) without having to add more sauce to the recipe.

  1. The chicken should be rubbed with the Dijon and oregano, cooked then deglazed.. The amount of fluids seems to be too much and the gravy is far to soupy. Definitely needs a thickening agent, flour or corn starch. I didn’t starve the night I made it, but it was not great

  2. Delicious! Please read note from author about the amount of sauce this makes- I didn’t and ended up swimming in it! Lol! But truly delicious and will just cut recipe in half as recommended. 🙂
