Chicken : Favourite Recipes To Share : Here Are Three

Chicken Thighs Pan Roasted with a Chive Cream Sauce

I just don't think you can beat chicken, and in particular chicken thighs.
This is such a tasty recipe idea - could be a mid-week hit - see what you think. 

Serves Four
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Butter
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 Pounds Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
1/3 Cup Finely Chopped Yellow (white) Onion
1/4 Cup Dry White Wine (use whatever white wine you enjoy drinking for this, a chardonnay is nice)
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 Cup Chicken Stock
1/2 Cup Heavy (double) Cream
1/4 Cup Chopped Fresh Chives
(Kosher) Salt + Black Pepper
and more here

Mustard and Sage Chicken with Celeriac Mash

Swapping potatoes for celeriac lowers the carbohydrates in this lovely mid-week dinner suggestion ... ready in under half an hour and tastes great!

Serves Three

1 celeriac, peeled and cut into chunks
3 chicken breasts, skinless
1 tbsp. English mustard powder
2 tsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
8 sage leaves, chopped
100g low-fat crème fraîche, plus 2 tbsp. for the mash
1 chicken stock cube
2 tbsp. wholegrain mustard

To Serve:
275g cooked green veg, such as thin-stemmed broccoli, peas or Savoy cabbage,
and more, here

I've never cooked celeriac in this way, these recipes sound wonderful!

Sandy said...

I must google celeriac, never heard of it. Your 2nd recipe sounds good, looks good. I use lots of whole ground mustard for seasoning. It's good on pork and chicken. Thanks for the visit. I will add you to my blog log to make visiting easier.

Hi, I love most all chicken casseroles. We had Chicken and Dumplings last night with added veggies. YUM...

That Chicken with Mustard and Sage sounds good. I have never had that combination before.

Thanks for sharing.

Love chicken, so I really liked these recipes. And in answer to your last post I'm not addicted to my phone. It mostly lives at the bottom of my purse turned off. We use it primarily when we travel.

So much you can do with a chicken.

Hmmmm, wine and or mustard, that sounds yummy!
I love chicken and guess where I´m going to tomorrow! I prefer chicken breast, though, super-dry, too. Always kills the hubby when I say, "nooo, keep it on the bbq longer!" ;-)


Tres buenas y sugerentes recetas, a cual más apetitosa.

Muy sabroso el pollo, me encanta. Un beso.

Jenn Jilks said...

I used to love making casseroles. I've changed it up some.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

They all sound good, but that first one reeeeally hits the button for me. So much so, I copied and pasted it and emailed it to myself. Which led me into a teensy rabbit hole... I had an email from my brother, so of course, I HAD to respond. Then a message from our older son... Well, you know how it goes. But I came back here to leave a comment. (Eventually... HA!) I'll definitely give that recipe a try, but (bad girl!) I'll probably leave the skin on...
