Mashed Potatoes With Chicken with Mustard Cream Sauce & Buttered Veggies - Continental Recipes 1



I get many mails from my viewers asking me to share continental food recipes like you get in a restaurant. Frankly i love continental foods, but i have never tried making it at home. Finally after my trip to coorg, i enjoyed lots of cotinental foods and i got the confident to try it at home.

The first platter which i made is this mashed potatoes, chicken with mustard cream sauce and buttered veggies. I love chicken with mustard flavour. And the mashed potatoes along with the cream sauce is to die for. I enjoyed this a lot. If you want me to share any other of your favourite continental platter, please let me know..i would love to try it..


The chicken in this is juicy and moist and when topped with that creamy mustard sauce is just yum..instead of cream in the sauce, i used milk and it turned out just great..


Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
