1/2 Tsp Grape seed oil
7 Oz Chicken, sliced
1 Tsp Smoked sea salt
1 Tsp Smoked paprika
1 Tsp Dijon mustard
2 Oz Chicken stock
1 Cup King oyster mushrooms, sliced
1 Cup Zucchini, chopped


step #1

To begin your Chicken Fricassée with Dijon Mustard Sauce, take two non-stick pans and place them on your stove over medium heat.

step #2

Add your grape seed oil to both pans so it can heat up before adding your chicken and vegetables.

step #3

In the first pan, add your chicken for the fricassée and season it with sea salt. Let your chicken sear.

step #4

Take your other pan and add your finely sliced mushrooms and zucchini. The vegetables will add nutrition and interest to your fricassée.

step #5

You'll want to let the vegetables sit while you continue preparing the chicken and the Dijon mustard sauce for the fricassée.

step #6

Add a pinch of smoked paprika to your chicken and your vegetables while they are cooking.

step #7

Once your chicken is well seared, add your Dijon mustard and stir it into the pan right away to start your fricassée's sauce. 

step #8

After your Dijon mustard is mixed into the chicken, add 1oz of your chicken stock to complete your Chicken Fricassée's Dijon Mustard sauce.

step #9

Let your chicken cook and turn back to your vegetables.

step #10

Add your leftover chicken stock to the vegetables so the moisture can accelerate the length of your vegetables cooking. It also helps add volume to your Chicken Fricassée's sauce.

step #11

Once everything is cooked, you can plate your chicken and vegetables for your fricassee dish. Don't forget to pour your Dijon mustard sauce over everything!

step #12

Ready to serve!
