Dijon Glazed Chicken Breasts with Zucchini

Number of Servings: 4

Serving Size: 1 piece chicken, 2 Tbsp sauce, and 1/2 cup zucchini

Chicken, Dijon-based sauce, and zucchini are a classic French combination. This recipe is simple enough to make any time, yet special enough to impress guests with.

Name: Amount:
all-purpose flour 0.25 cup
salt 1 tsp
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
boneless, skinless chicken breasts (8 oz each), sliced in half width-wise making 4 (4 oz pieces) 2
extra-virgin olive oil 1 Tbsp
fat-free or low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock 2 cups
zucchini (about 6 oz each), cut into thin slices 3
Dijon mustard 2 Tbsp
fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped 0.25 cup

Mix flour, salt, and pepper together in a large shallow bowl.ÂLightly coat each chicken breast and set aside.


Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large, wide skillet.ÂAdd chicken and cook for 5 minutes on each side, or until brown, turning once. Pour stock over chicken. Arrange zucchini slices around the chicken, so that they are covered by the stock. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until chicken and zucchini are cooked through.


With a slotted spoon, remove chicken and zucchini and place on a serving platter. Add mustard to remaining stock in the pan, and whisk to incorporate.ÂIncrease heat to high. Cook for a few minutes, or until sauce has thickened and barely coats the bottom of pan. Pour sauce over chicken and zucchini. Sprinkle fresh parsley over the top.
