Tangy mustard and sweet honey make this dish high in flavour yet easy on the salt. Boneless skinless turkey breast, another lean protein, is a great substitute for the chicken. Use the same weight and cut it into four portions.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken cutlet
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cups white wine
  • 1/2 cup no-salt-added chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream (35%)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon (or 2 tsp dried tarragon)
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
Skillet Sweet Potatoes And Beans:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 sweet potatoes peeled and cut in 1/2-inch cubes
  • 9 oz green beans cut diagonally in 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
  • 1 tablespoon liquid honey
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard

Method

Using meat mallet, flatten chicken if thicker than 1 inch (2.5 cm). Sprinkle with pepper and salt.

In skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken, turning once, 6 to 8 minutes.? Add wine and broth; cover and cook until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes. Remove to plate and keep warm.

Boil pan juices until reduced to 1/2 cup. Whisk in cream, tarragon and mustard; cook until thickened enough to coat back of spoon, about 2 minutes. Serve over chicken.

Skillet Sweet Potatoes And Beans: Meanwhile, in nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook potatoes, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, about 10 minutes.

Add beans; cook for 2 minutes. Add 1/4 cup water; cover and cook until potatoes are fork-tender, about 2 minutes. Toss with honey and mustard. Serve with chicken.
