Creamy Honey Mustard Chicken
Approximately 1kg Chicken thigh fillets (or 4 small breasts)
300g button mushrooms, quartered/halved depending on size
1 brown onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, sliced finely
2 Tbsp. wholegrain mustard
2 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard
2 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. GF cornflour
1 Tbsp. butter
400ml can coconut cream
Fresh rosemary sprigs
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 180C.
In a sauté pan or other oven and stove top proof dish (I use my stove top compatible Corningware – but a cast iron pan such as a Le Creuset would also work), melt the butter and a Tbsp. of olive oil. Sauté the onion and garlic over a low to medium heat until they aretransparent. Toss through the mushrooms. Turn the heat up to high, then add the chicken pieced, turning once to seal and slightly brown.
In the meantime, in a small bowl combine the mustards, honey, cornflour, salt and pepper and another Tbsp. or two of olive oil and mix with a fork until well combined.
Pour mustard mix over the browned chicken, onionand mushroom mix and add coconut cream. Stir through then sprinkle rosemary over the top. Place the chicken uncovered into the oven for 35 minutes or until chicken is cooked and golden.
If you don’t have a dish that can go on both thecooktop and in the oven, use a saucepan to sauté ingredients before transferring them to an oven proof dish, before adding the sauce ingredients and cooking in the oven as per previous instructions.
