  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1.5 pounds thinly sliced chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • ¼ cup yellow mustard
  • ¼ cup stone ground mustard or any other mustard with whole grain mustard seeds
  • freshly chopped parsley optional


  • In a small prep bowl add cornstarch and water. Stir until combined.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper, and add chicken to pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until golden, then flip and cook 2-3 additional minutes. Move chicken to a plate; set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add chicken broth. Bring broth to simmer, and use a wire whisk to scrape up any golden bits from the bottom of the pan. Whisk in honey, both mustards, and cornstarch mixture. Cook until sauce begins to thicken, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place chicken back into the pan and nestle it into the sauce. Spoon sauce over chicken and cook until chicken is heated through about 1-2 minutes.
  • Garnish chicken with parsley and serve over mashed cauliflower.
