- Yield: 4 1x
1 T Dijon mustard
1 T whole grain mustard
1 C low-sodium Chicken broth
4 tsp Stacey Hawkins Roasted Garlic Oil (or fresh garlic & oil)
4C broccoli florets, fresh
1 T Stacey Hawkins Garlic Gusto Seasoning (or fresh crushed garlic, parsley, lemon and onion)
1½ lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Pinch Stacey Hawkins Dash of Desperation Seasoning (or salt, pepper, onion, garlic and parsley)
Whisk together mustard and broth in a bowl, set aside.
In a large frying pan (with lid), heat oil over medium high heat. Add broccoli and season with Garlic Gusto. Cook for approx. 2 minutes, stirring broccoli to coat it in the oil and seasoning.
Pour broccoli into a bowl and set aside.
Place the pan back over the heat and add the chicken, browning it on each side for 4-5 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium. Pour chicken broth & mustard mixture over the chicken.
Add the broccoli and cover the pan with a lid. Let simmer for 5-7 minutes, until chicken is thoroughly cooked and broccoli is bright green & tender crisp- not overcooked.
Remove from heat and serve hot. Season with Dash of Desperation for additional flavor.
