Creamy Lemon Mustard Sauce

Easy Creamy Lemon Mustard Sauce Sure To Spice Up Any Chicken Recipe!

I’ve been spending a lot of time lately making sauces. My Husband and I eat a lot of chicken and I just knew it was time to do a little experimenting to spice up these chicken dinners. Don’t get me wrong, the sauces don’t always turn out delicious, but that’s the fun part about cooking. Don’t be afraid to get into the kitchen and experiment, you might actually make a mistake and come up with something wonderful. Fortunately for you, this recipe is simple and quick to make!

I made this recipe to go with skin on chicken thighs. I pan seared them in a cast iron skillet until crispy and cooked through. You can also use this recipe on any type of chicken though. So, if you have chicken breast lying around go ahead and use it!
