In a bowl, mix: the dijon mustard, moutarde à l’ancienne, and 1/2 of the light cream. Set aside.
Cut the chicken into thin strips of 1 inch. On a plate, mix: the flour, pepper, and the remaining salt. Dredge the chicken in the flour and shake off the excess.
The flour will protect the meat and give a thicker gravy
In a frying pan, heat 1/2 of the olive oil over high heat for 30 sec. Add the chicken. Lower the heat to medium and cook each side for 3 min. Transfer to a plate and keep the oil in the pan.

This traditional French style of cooking chicken is a rich delicacy. The easy and tasteful turnip-potato purée is a new perky take on mash and an excellent complement to the creamy and mustardy chicken. The kick of the mustard is softened by the cream, and the mash is sugarcoated with parsley to add freshness. This is as simple as cooking gets, yet it’s healthy and thoroughly satisfying. It’s comfort food that’s good for you.
What's your favorite French ingredient / condiment ?

Though typical of the Dijon region, today, Dijon mustard isn’t necessarily made in Dijon, but can refer to any mustard based on this delicious traditional mustard recipe.
