  1. Spray a skillet with cooking spray, and place over medium heat. Fry chicken breasts in the skillet until cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  2. While the chicken cooks, melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat, and stir in flour until smooth. Stir in green onion, and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture starts to brown. Gradually mix in milk, and continue cooking and stirring until the sauce is thick and smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in the mustard and Camembert until melted and smooth.
  3. Remove chicken to serving plates, and top with slices of avocado. Pour sauce over the chicken, and serve.

Just as advertised, very easy and ritzy. As usual I made a few small changes to the recipe. Our son was home from college with a group so I had to multiply and as the number changed, I changed the principle method of cooking the chicken from pan to oven. The only thing I would change is how to handle the cheese. Camembert is very similar to Brie which could be used. I wasn't sure how to handle the corn starch skin. I reasoned the corn starch would become incorporated and add to the thickening. It didn't. The next time I thought I would heat the cheese separately and add it to the green onion butter mixture, don't. Next time I'll trim the cheese "skin" and have a snack while cooking. This recipe is a keeper, quick easy and kinda fancy.

I was unimpressed. It was okay, but I was expecting much better.

What a delicious meal, and so easy to make. The mustard in the sauce added that extra flavour.

I used brie (rind removed) instead of Camembert, and the sauce came out smooth, rich, and very tasty with a hint of spiciness from the mustard. I also used only 2 chicken breasts and used the extra sauce over steamed asparagus spears -- DELICIOUS!

This is a WINNER. Rich and creamy with a great depth of flavor from the mustard, green onion and Camembert. This is a great low-carb dinner recipe too if you OMIT FLOUR and use HEAVY CREAM(it will thicken itself,if you cook down) instead of milk. The "star" of this recipe, is the avocado, so I wouldn't skip that. Nicole Jansen, this is excellent! If I wasn't doing low-carb, I wouldn't of changed a thing; esp. the Camembert. Thank you for a different,delicious, quick and great- for-company recipe!

Absolute LOVED this recipe! Going to make it again tonight! I really like the tangy-ness of the mustard :-)

Very quick and easy! And so delicious. I followed someone else's suggestion and made less chicken and used the rest of the sauce over cooked asparagus...oh to die for! We will definitely make this again.

Excellent and easy! Rather than make the sauce in a separate pan, I removed the chicken breasts from the frying pan, deglazed with a little wine, then continued with the sauce, adding more onion that called for. Delicious!
