Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook and Heart Healthy Cookbook share a recipe! Dijon and mushrooms turn boring chicken into tasty chicken that can be on your dinner table in less than 30 minutes.

Ingredients

4
boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb)
1/4
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
2
tablespoons olive or canola oil
1/2
cup roasted garlic-seasoned chicken broth (from 14-oz can)
1
jar (4.5 oz) Green Giant™ sliced mushrooms, drained
1 1/2
tablespoons Dijon mustard
Chopped fresh thyme, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick. In shallow pan, stir together flour, salt and pepper.
  • 2 In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Coat both sides of chicken with flour mixture. Cook chicken in hot oil 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in center. Remove chicken to serving plate; cover to keep warm.
  • 3 Stir broth into skillet. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Stir in mushrooms and mustard. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened. Spoon sauce over chicken. Sprinkle with thyme.
