Classy Chicken

Recipe by  

"An elegant, easy-to-make chicken dish bursting with flavors of sun dried tomatoes and creamy white wine sauce. My husband calls it the classiest meal I serve because it's exactly like what you order in a fancy restaurant! Very low in fat and calories, and it only takes 1/2 hour from start to finish. Pairs nicely with roasted baby potatoes and steamed broccoli."

  1. Place the flour into a shallow dish. Season chicken with salt and pepper, and then dredge in flour. Shake off excess. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken breasts on each side, about 3 minutes per side.
  2. Pour the chicken broth and white wine into the skillet, and scrape any chicken residue from the pan for flavor. Stir in the mustard. Cover, and cook for a few minutes until chicken is 'springy', but not cooked through. Add the zucchini and sun-dried tomatoes, then season with garlic and dill weed. Cover, and cook until the zucchini is tender and the chicken is cooked through, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the chicken to a platter, and remove the pan from the heat. Stir sour cream into the pan liquid. If most of the liquid has evaporated, stir in a bit more wine or broth first. Season with salt to taste, and serve chicken with sauce poured over it.

This was so good and so easy!!! I was low on white wine, so I added some red wine and I used regular sour cream. I would also recommend putting the tomatoes in warm water to let them soften, like others have said It truly makes a difference and ADD MORE! Next time I will cut the chicken into bite size pieces, so they can truly absorb the sauce. Thanks!

This was a good recipe although I think I will alter it somewhat next time. I too plan to add onions, fresh sliced mushrooms and a tad more garlic. We served over rice and enjoyed. Interesting blend of tastes.

Easy dish and always a hit. Took the advice of another reader and soaked the tomatoes in water. I've added bell peppers or broccoli, lots of mushrooms and have experimented with other veggie combos. Served this over asparagus-zuchinni rice from this website and was definitely a memorable meal that has been requested more than once.

I made it exactly as described and it was delish! Dill & dijon gives a nice zing; chicken was tender and moist. I used bottled sundried tomatoes in olive oil which i'm sure didn't hurt the flavor any.

The sauce in this is delicious! I didn't add any sour cream since I didn't have any, and because of what some other reviewers have said. I also didn't have sundried tomatoes, so I added mushrooms instead. It came out perfect! The mustard and dill flavours work so well together! I think in the future i'll experiment with different vegetables.

I have gotten great reviews on this dish every time I've made it! I love this recipe :). The only change I make is to add artichoke hearts.

Tasty and looks great on the plate. The flavor is similar to a classy chicken stroganoff. It was really easy to throw together and everyone got seconds. That makes it 5 stars in my book!

It took more than 30 minutes to prepare, although this was the first time I made it and once you know what you are doing, it always goes faster! Do NOT leave out the sour cream, in fact I added a little more and the mustard added such a delightful little zing! Husband dislikes zucchini but he said he'd rate it a 4 and would eat it again. Did notice he left some of the sun dried tomatoes on the plate...I would give it a 5 if it was just up to me. Very pretty but serve on linquini or rice to soak up the yummy sauce.
