Creamy Dijon Chicken

 

Chicken meals are a freezer staple in our house.  This Creamy Dijon Chicken has become one of our favorites as of late.  Topped with a creamy dijon sauce, it pairs perfectly with almost any side dish – from a crisp salad, to sweet potatoes, or even a fruit dish.  The mild flavor of this dish also makes it a great meal to have on hand to give to that new mom, friend who is recovering from surgery, or even a surprise for your child’s teacher!
