This is a recipe for those who want more holiday, and less work in the kitchen, this weekend! The key ingredient is the US-style sweet mustard which really gives it a kick.


  • 450g boneless, skinless chicken breasts , cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 Tbsp French's Classic Yellow Sweet Mustard, divided
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced
  • 230g sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves
  • 250 ml chicken broth
  • 125 ml heavy cream

1. Toss the chicken in one tablespoon of the mustard. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat and brown the chicken. Remove and set aside.

2. Melt the butter in the same frying pan. Add onion and cook for 8 minutes or until softened. Add mushrooms and garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add vinegar and remaining mustard and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are caramelised.
