Chicken in Mustard Cream Sauce

*picture compliments of pioneer woman

i have to brag on my hubs...when i mentioned we were having rosemary rutabaga fries, cabbage & chicken in mustard cream sauce for dinner, he didn't bat an eye or complain. then i remembered mcdonald's is .5 miles away & that was what he was thinking. i also learned that if you wait until the food is almost ready to serve, then mention what's for dinner, it goes down without a problem. marriage...just leaves you always learning. seriously.

now that i've really got you geared up for a delicious meal, let's venture in to what was on our plates last night!

i found this recipe on pioneer woman's blog & thought it sounded amazing.

{pause...i have a major blog crush on the pioneer woman. i mean, she lives in the middle of no where, started a blog, now has a cookbook & a show on food network. talk about making lemonade out of lemons! she also homeschools...and anyone who could sanely do that deserves an honor. a medal. a bottle of jack daniels.}

i made a few tweaks to her version am giving it to you below. behold...delicious, healthy chicken in mustard cream sauce.
