The sauce is a mixture of chicken broth, heavy cream, creole mustard, honey, and thyme. Just a touch of honey adds a hint of sweetness to complement the spice of the mustard and cayenne pepper. There’s ample sauce for 3 to 4 chicken breasts.

Recipe Tips:

For best flavor, use Creole mustard. I use Zatarains. Creole mustard has a grainy texture and is made from brown mustard seeds steeped in vinegar. It often contains horseradish for a little extra zip.

There’s a full 2 tablespoons of Creole mustard in the sauce for maximum flavor. You can reduce the mustard amount a little if you want less mustard taste.

You can increase the amount of honey if you want more of a honey mustard taste.

Skinless, boneless chicken thighs can be used instead of boneless chicken breasts if you wish.
