  • Add garlic to remaining oil in pan and sauté ten seconds, then add chicken broth, cream, mustard, thyme and sage and cook, stirring constantly until sauce thickens, about one to two minutes. Stir in honey.

I can’t emphasize enough, please do not discount this recipe if you are not a fan of mustard! I personally hate mustard but am in love with this creamy sauce, it was ridiculously delicious. It’s a pretty straightforward recipe, very quick and simple. This dish is a perfect “weeknight” dinner, but tastes like an awesome, time-consuming “weekend” dinner. I was pleasantly surprised at how delightful it turned out to be. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
