recipe image

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, about 8 ounces each
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (1/4 stick), at a cool room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Instructions:

  1. 1Heat the oven to 425Β°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Season the chicken breasts all over with salt and black pepper.
  2. 2Set a large, heavy, ovenproof frying pan or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. When it’s hot, add the oil and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the chicken, presentation (i.e., smooth) side down, and cook until browned, about 4 minutes. Using tongs, turn the chicken over and put the frying pan in the oven. Bake until the chicken is cooked through but still juicy, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a warm platter and let sit for about 10 minutes, while you make the sauce.
  3. 3Return the frying pan to the stovetop over medium-high heat. Add the broth, wine, and thyme sprig. Bring to a boil, scraping the bottom of the pan to loosen any browned bits. Cook for 5 minutes.
  4. 4In a small bowl, stir together the butter, mustard, and flour to form a paste. Whisk into the liquid in the pan. Cook, stirring constantly with a whisk, until the mixture thickens, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the parsley. Serve the chicken on warmed plates, ladled with the sauce.
