How to make Creamy Honey Mustard Chicken with Bacon

Making this dish is pretty easy to do and cooked in one pan!

To start, I cook up my bacon in the the skillet. You can chop it up before hand or cook the slices whole and then chop them afterwards. Once it is cooked, I remove it and then use the fat left in the pan to cook the chicken cutlets.

The chicken cutlets take about 10 minutes or so to cook through (about 5 minutes on each side) but this will depend on the thickness of your chicken. I keep a meat thermometer handy and use it to let me know when they are ready. Once the chicken is cooked, I remove it from the pan.

Next I start making my sauce. I add a bit of butter to the pan and saute my onion. Once it is transluscent, I add dry white wine, chicken broth and stir them for a bit. Then in goes the milk, mustard and honey. I season with salt and pepper and stir everything until it begins to bubble and thicken.

Then I return the chicken to the pan and let it simmer for a few minutes. A sprinkle of bacon and chopped parsley and this dish is done and ready to please hungry tummies!

This chicken is delicious served with roasted veggies, a fresh salad, potatoes and rice. I often serve this over baked rice, which is so yummy as it absorbs all of the extra sauce. SO GOOD!

Hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do! Bon appetit!
