Today was a beautiful fall day and it put me in the mood for fall food. Here is what I had on hand.
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
1 lb of chicken thighs
Broccoli and cauliflower (a couple cups)
2 tsp minced garlic
Juice from one lemon
1 tbsp butter
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup white wine
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
I made Chicken Dijonnaise with broccoli and cauliflower. I cooked the chicken thighs like usual in a bit of coconut oil. 5 min per side then in the oven (350) for another 10 (or more realistic until I’m done cooking everything else)
Once I got the chicken in the pan, I started on the Dijonnaise. (Sounds fancy right?) I melted butter into a sauce pan, added the coconut milk, wine, Dijon, a little garlic and let it simmer and thicken.
After the chicken cooked a few minutes on each side I moved it to the oven and added the veg to the same pan. I put a lid on them and let them cook for about 5 minutes. Then I moved the veg to a platter, added the Dijon sauce to the chicken pan to incorporate the last of the drippings . Pull the chicken out of the oven, place on top of the veg, then top with the sauce and enjoy! All in about 30 minutes, perfect week night comfort food.
