Easy Skillet Dijon Chicken gets dinner on the table in 40 minutes that comes with a slow cooked taste. Chicken thighs are cooked with shallots, rosemary, white wine and Dijon mustard that makes a dairy-free, creamy sauce/gravy. A really good one pan dinner.
This is such a comforting dish and because it’s all made on one pan, clean-up is a breeze! Just serve with your favorite vegetable (and maybe a big dollop of mash) and dinner is on the table in no time. I used chicken thighs for this recipe but by all means you can use skin-on, bone-in chicken breasts.
I’m not a lover of yellow mustard on its own in sandwiches or burgers. Probably because I never grew up with mustard, it was not a big condiment in the UK back then. What I have discovered that it makes the most delicious salad dressings and sauces. Especially Dijon mustard that has so many delicious ingredients like wine and garlic, it can add quick flavor to any sauce, and that is how I came to make this dish, Easy skillet Dijon chicken.

Chicken thighs are cooked with shallots, rosemary, white wine and Dijon mustard that makes a delicious gravy.
Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time35 minutes
Total Time40 minutes
4 skin on, bone-in chicken thighs
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium shallot, chopped
2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 large garlic clove, grated
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 cup (118 ml) dry white wine that is not too sweet
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup (236 ml) chicken stock, *see note
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish
Lay the chicken pieces on a large cutting board and season both sides with salt and pepper.
To a large skillet (preferable cast iron) add the oil over medium heat. When the oil starts to ripple add the chicken, skin side down and cook for 6 minutes or more until skin is brown. Turn and cook for another 6 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Add the shallots and rosemary to the same pan over medium heat and cook until softened about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute, do not burn.
Whisk the flour into the shallots until it is mixed into the oil. Cook for 1 minute, stirring.
Whisk in the wine, 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper, scraping all the bits off the bottom of the pan and simmer for 2 minutes until slightly reduced.
Pour in the chicken stock while whisking, then whisk in the mustard until well mixed.
Add the chicken back into the pan skin side up and simmer for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and reaches 165°F/74°C when a meat thermometer is inserted. Time will depend on how thick the thighs are.
Serve warm with your favorite sides.
* Taste your chicken stock for the salt level before using as this can add a lot of salt to the dish and change it dramatically.

I’ve tried this dish a few times & the first time, the bone in chicken thighs were not cooked well. So, I’ve learned to the place the chicken aside in a warm oven to cook it a little more. I’m cooking for a group of ladies in a few weeks. What sides/veggies would you suggest? Thanks
I like simple roasted vegetables. I have a recipe that has a sauce, but you can roast them and serve without the sauce: https://culinaryginger.com/simple-roasted-vegetables-with-herb-sauce/
Roasted potato salad would be a nice option: https://culinaryginger.com/roasted-potato-herb-salad/
Or rice pilaf: https://culinaryginger.com/mushroom-and-sage-rice-pilaf/
I hope this helps and enjoy 😀
