Chicken the old fashioned way

This chicken uses French old flavored mustard that contains mustard seeds and wine, it’s a very special mustard and it’s very good, it also contains lemon juice and garlic; it’s very easy to make and very tasty! You have to cook the chicken breast with a little bit of water and with the lid on in order to have a moist result. Nevertheless, you need to serve immediately because if it gets cold then you lose the moist! It’s made rapidly and it’s very efficient :)

If you cannot find the French old flavored mustard (which is a pity but then only some of us live in France !), you can try it with some mild or even sweet mustard, I have not tried myself but the idea pleases me a lot :-)
