Chicken with Creamy Dijon Herb Sauce

I love fast, easy meals for dinner time that add a little variety to our new way of eating. But there are a lot of ingredients we don’t use anymore so it can be hard to find new ideas.

In Sunday’s newspaper coupons, I found this recipe for Chicken with Creamy Dijon Herb Sauce. It was so fabulicious! Nom! We will definitely have it over and over again.


1/2 cup chicken broth

1/3 cup dijon mustard

1/3 cup cream cheese

1 tbs minced herbs (I used basil. chives, parsley, oregano are other ideas)

1 tbs oil

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 tsp minced garlic

Mix broth, mustard, cream cheese and herbs until well blended and set aside.

Cook chicken in hot oil in non-stick skillet until browned on both sides, about 15 minutes.

Stir in mustard sauce and garlic. Simmer over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes until sauce thickens slightly and flavors are blended.

Enjoy this garlicky deliciousness!

Happiness IRL

This past Saturday, I got a chance to meet two people I have wanted to meet for a very long time: Paula Porter and Cecil Fisher.

I'm about a foot taller than Paula so I let her stand on the curb so we wouldn't look like an NBA wedding. :-)

Paula and I have been twitter friends for a long time now. I enjoy her zaniness and how she seems to think the same way that I do. It was kind of just a drive-by meeting and I can’t wait to get some time to go back to OKC and have lunch and really get a chance to visit in person.

The darling Cecil.

I have wanted to meet Cecil Fisher since he was born a  year ago. I just adore his parents, Afton and Jon, who have been my twitter friends for a long time, now. They are two funny and fun young people. Cecil is the image of his daddy and I have so enjoyed watching him grow up via the daily photos that Afton posts to facebook. I felt like I actually knew him when I saw him but I almost cried at the reality of him. He is SO precious.

Thank you, Afton and Jon, for including us in Cecil’s big day. It was so much fun!

Meeting people IRL whom I have first met on twitter is one of my favorite things to do. Who would have ever guessed you could make such good friends that way? I love twitter!
