The Man Trapping Chicken Dijon

My chicken dijon dish is an excellent man trapper. Feed any man of yours this dish, and pair it with a slice of Heavenly Cake, and he'll never leave, babe!

This dish is really easy to make. It's just a few simple steps, and you've got an awesome meal! I prefer to serve the chicken and mushroom sauce over couscous with a side of grilled corn. Mmmm.

Chicken Dijon
Makes 4 servings

4 chicken breasts, boneless
16 oz. mushrooms, fresh and sliced
2 T light sour cream
1/2 C chicken broth
1 T dijon-type mustard
Italian seasoning, to taste
2 t olive oil

1.Heat a medium sized pan over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and coat the bottom of the pan with it.
2.While the pan and oil are heating, season the chicken with the italian seasoning on both sides.
3.Add the chicken to the hot pan. Cook until the chicken is done, turning it to cook it evenly. Usually, this takes about five minutes per side. Remove the cooked chicken from the pan, and place it aside to rest.
4.Leaving all the googly bits in the bottom of the pan, add the mushrooms and the remaining olive oil. Sautee the mushrooms until they are soft and cooked through, about five minutes.
5.Add the chicken broth, sour cream, and mustard. Stir until everything is incorporated and the flavors have had time to meld – around five more minutes.
6.Enjoy! I like to serve this over couscous and with a side of grilled corn.

Dijon Chicken

This is my favorite meal ever. I love it, and it's pretty easy to make.

Here's a sneak preview. I took this with my camera phone, so please forgive me if the image sucks. I'll try to update tonight with an image from a *real* camera as well as a recipe!
