Delicious chicken with mustard cream sauce served with mashed potatoes and buttered vegetables.

About Chicken with Mustard cream sauce
Mashed potatoes are made by mashing boiled potatoes with milk, butter, salt, and pepper. It's usually served as a side dish with meat or vegetables. Smashed potatoes refer to potatoes that have only been roughly mashed. There are both dehydrated instant mashed potatoes and frozen mashed potatoes available. Mashed potatoes
are used in a variety of other dishes, including dumplings and gnocchi.
Antoine-Augustin Parmentier, a French army pharmacist, was captured by Prussian soldiers during the Seven Years War in the mid- 1700s. As a prisoner of war, he was forced to subsist on potato rations. In mid-eighteenth-century France, this would have qualified as cruel and unusual punishment: potatoes were thought to be feed
for livestock and were thought to cause leprosy in humans. The fear was so widespread that the French passed legislation prohibiting them in 1748.
However, as Parmentier discovered in prison, potatoes were not lethal. They were, in fact, quite tasty. Following his release at the end of the war, the pharmacist began to preach the benefits of the tuber to his countrymen. He did this in a variety of ways, including demonstrations.
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. Check out chicken piccata recipe too.

Ingredients for Chicken With Mustard Cream Sauce
White Pepper Powder :
White pepper powder is frequently described as having a musty, grassy, or slightly fermented flavour. It is generally considered milder than black pepper, though some claim to prefer its heat, and others describe ginger notes.
Nutmeg Powder :
Nutmeg is a popular spice that is available in both ground and whole form. It is known for its warm, nutty flavour, which makes it the ideal addition to comforting sweet and savoury dishes. When nutmeg spice is ground, it takes on a warm and aromatic flavour with clove notes.
Mustard Sauce :
Bitterness is produced as a byproduct of the mustard reaction, but it fades after a day or so. Pure mustards can be stored at room temperature, but mustards containing other ingredients, such as the Roman nut mustard I mentioned earlier, should be kept in the refrigerator.
