  • 1 medium onion cut in half and sliced.
  • 5 medium cloves garlic, pressed.
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces.
  • 3 TBS Dijon mustard.
  • 1 TBS + 1/2 cup chicken broth.
  • 2 tsp honey.
  • 1 TBS chopped fresh tarragon (or 1 tsp dried tarragon).
  • 2 TBS chopped fresh parsley (or 2 tsp dried parsley).
  • salt and white pepper to taste.


  1. Slice onion and press garlic and let sit for 5-10 minutes to bring out their hidden health benefits.

  2. Heat 1 TBS broth in a 10-12 inch stainless steel skillet. Healthy Sauté onion in broth over medium heat for 2 minutes.

  3. While onions are sautéing, cut chicken into pieces. Add chicken pieces and continue to sauté for another 3 minutes, stirring frequently to seal chicken on all sides. Add garlic and continue to sauté for another minute.

  4. Add mustard, 1/2 cup broth, and honey. Mix thoroughly and simmer uncovered for about 7-8 minutes on medium-high heat stirring occasionally to cook chicken evenly. This will also reduce sauce.

  5. While chicken is cooking, chop herbs and add at end with salt and pepper to taste.
