Ingredients Related Tips

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3 level tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt to season
  • 5 skinless and boneless chicken breasts (or chicken thighs)
  • 1/2 cup diced bacon, trimmed of rind and fat
  • 1/3 cup cream (light or reduced fat)
  • 1 cup milk (skim, 2% or full fat - almond milk may be used for a dairy free option)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch (corn flour) mixed with 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. In a large, shallow dish, combine the honey, mustard, garlic, oil and salt to taste (not too much salt if serving with bacon as the bacon will add a salty flavor when served). Coat chicken evenly in the sauce. Set aside.
  2. Heat a nonstick pan (or skillet) over medium heat. Fry bacon until crispy; transfer to a plate. To the same pan, sear chicken fillets on each side in the oil left over from the bacon until just beginning to brown (about 3 minutes per side -- not completely cooked through as we will finish them in the sauce).
  3. Add any remaining honey mustard sauce into the pan along with the cream and milk. Bring to a simmer while stirring occasionally to mix the flavors through the sauce (about 3 minutes), until the chicken is cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a warm plate.
  4. Pour the cornstarch mixture into the center of the pan, mixing it through the sauce until it thickens.
  5. Place chicken back into the pan; coat with the sauce. Top with the bacon and garnish with parsley.
