Husband loved it. "Closest to fried chicken I'll ever see."
Dijon Mustard Chicken Fricassee
Factor at least eight hours into your prep time for the chicken to marinate in the herb-mustard mixture. You can make this dish up to one day ahead. Cool, cover, and refrigerate cooked chicken in reduced sauce. Reheat over low heat. Serve with a whole grain like wild rice, and fill the plate with haricot verts or a crisp green salad.
