Recipe: Chicken in Dill Mustard Sauce by Chef Richard Ingraham

“Being that Dwayne’s diet consists of almost 90% poultry, I have to be  creative in preparing his meals. I came up with this dish with the  thought of making something so flavorful and eye catching that he’d  ask for it again. It worked! I hope you’ll enjoy it too!” – Chef Richard Ingraham


  • 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots
  • 1/4 cup chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  1. Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium high heat until hot, but not smoking.

  6. Pour out all but 2 tablespoons of oil from the pan.
