French Fridays: Chicken with Mustard from My Paris Kitchen

David Lebovitz Chicken with Mustard from My Paris Kitchen on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis week’s recipe for Cook the Book Fridays from David Lebovitz’s My Paris KitchenChicken with Mustard – is notable for two reasons:

  1. It’s the recipe on the cover of the book and
  2. It’s our FINAL RECIPE from this book

Yup – since February 2016, twice a month I’ve blogged about the recipes from David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen (you can read all the posts here) and today is the last time I’ll be recording that journey 🙁

We deliberately left this recipe until last as it’s the “cover” recipe (like we did for Around my French Table) and I’m so glad we did. It’s my idea of the perfect French chicken dish. Simple (to prepare and ingredients) but so flavourful – chicken is seared then braised with herbs, onion, mustard and bacon and the dish is finished off with a little heavy cream. Simple perfection. This has been on repeat in our house since the first time we made it!

Thanks, David for a fun and educational 3+ years of recipes and many, many bookmarked to make again or as “go to” recipes (hello salted caramel mousse).

  1. Well it has to be said – I’ve made this twice for guests in the last month. Once as I dashed home from work on a Friday eve.

    Not only was this delicious, but I was able to impress my guests with culinary skills far more than I deserved: it truly is a simple recipe to make! 🙂

    As Mardi says, flavourful in an oh-so-French way. Definite repeat, and even if you don’t have guests – a big batch provides great lunch leftovers.

  2. Congratulations Mardi, it was a fun book to cook thru. Looking forward to following you with Dorie’s book. So far all those recipes have been winners, even the ones I thought wouldn’t work, actually did and were great.

  3. Lovely journey for this book, and onwards with ED!

    Your chicken pieces are nicely browned! An easy and delicious chicken dish, another go to recipe.

  4. Congrats, Mardi! It’s pretty incredible your dedication to cooking through all of these different projects! As for this particular dish, I agree that it is really just fabulous.
