If you want to eat like a chef, make this easy baked chicken dijonnaise recipe ASAP. I'm a chef, so you can trust me. The whole family will need chef hats after one bite.

This flavorful chicken recipe is delicious – and not as time consuming as you may think. Serve this juicy chicken with potatoes or rice to soak up the creamy, mustardy sauce. 

Cuisine: French
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 pounds chicken drumsticks (about 8)
  • 1 onion, finely sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • 3 tablespoons crème fraiche or sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons fresh chopped tarragon

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Heat the olive oil until shimmering. Season the chicken drumsticks with salt and pepper. Place the chicken in skillet and cook, turning often, until nicely brown, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add onions and garlic. Cook about 3 minutes, stirring.
  3. Add chicken stock and cumin. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook until done, about 30 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside.
  4. In a bowl, whisk together the mustard, crème fraiche and tarragon. Add to pan and stir until thickened.
  5. Return the chicken to pan and blanket with the sauce.
