Chicken Tenderloins with Creamy, Herby Sauce

27 Nov

ZOMG!  Nom nom nom.  I loved this recipe and so did my husband!  The sauce is just delicious!  You could have it on pork or beef or even stir it through a pasta or rice dish.

This dish weighs in at 383 calories and 13g of fat.  Pretty darn good in my opinion!

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 12 chicken tenderloins
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons plain flour
  • 1/4 cup light thickened cream
  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped tarragon leaves (or herb of your choice – I used parsley)
  • Steamed baby chat potatoes
  • Steamed or grilled asparagus
  • Olive oil cooking spray

Spray a little olive oil cooking spray in a non stick pan and heat over a medium heat.  Cook chicken for 3 minutes a side or until golden and cooked through.  Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.

Add mustard and flour to pan and stir until combined.  Slowly add cream and 1/2 a cup of water, stirring constantly.  Reduce heat.  Add herbs.  Simmer for one minute.

Arrange chicken on plates and spoon over sauce.  Serve with potatoes and asparagus and DIG IN!

        It was really good, and I’m not usually a mustard fan! I used mixed herbs for my herb choice so I think this will make it into my dinner rotation so I can experiment with different herbs. Thanks for posting the recipes 🙂

        Yeah it’s not really mustardy at all! Not a problem! Glad you liked it! 😀

    Looks yummy! I love creamy sauces – Carnation Light & Creamy could be good for this too 😀
