How to make it

  1. Heat olive oil in a saut pan over medium heat.Sprinkle both sides of each chicken breast with salt and pepper.
  2. Place the chicken gently in the pan. Cook for 5-7 minutes on each side, or until a thermometer inserted in the center reads 160 degrees F.
  3. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  4. Place 2 tablespoons of butter in the pan.
  5. Add onion, mushrooms, and red pepper flakes to the pan with the butter. Give the mixture a stir. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent and mushrooms are brown and tender, about 5 minutes (refrain from salting the dish until the end).
  6. Add the wine and reduce by half, about 3 minutes. Stir in chicken stock, dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, and capers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture reduces slightly, about 5 minutes.Stir in half and half. Allow the mixture to thicken slightly, about 3 minutes.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Place the chicken back in the pan and cook to warm through for 2-3 minutes.
  9. Serve over rice, egg noodles, or mashed potatoes.
