You know those nights where you are craving something simple and kind of rustic, but flavorful at the same time? Well, this recipe for Chicken with Mustard and Bacon is just that. It is simple, relying on just a handful of ingredients, but sophisticated thanks to the flavor layering of bacon, white wine, cream, and thyme. Serve up this dish with rice or pasta to soak up more of that delicious sauce, or with a simple pan of roasted carrots and potatoes, my go-to side for nights when I’m too tired to put any more thought into a meal.
As with any recipe from David Lebovitz, this Chicken with Mustard (Poulet a la Moutarde for you sophisticates) is absolutely heavenly. If you haven’t been introduced to this guy, I recommend blindly following whatever he has to say about cooking.
