Praised Chicken with Mustard & Dill

Praised Chicken with Mustard & Dill via The Mommy Games

As I promised in my last post, here is the recipe for “Praised” Chicken. It’s a Nigella recipe that I’ve been making for years, and is probably the most requested meal around our home in the winter time (it’s one of my husband’s favorites and both the kids love it, even my 11 month old). It’s like a super kicked-up version of chicken soup. It’s called “praised” because the chicken is first pan seared, then braised. It comes out super tender but with that almost roast chicken flavor. Plus, you get a nice amount of stock to keep in your freezer and use another time. You serve the chicken, veggies, and a little stock over rice with a side of Dijon mustard and a healthy portion of dill. It sounds a little different, but the whole combination is amazing. It’s these little additions that make this a company worthy dish. This a surefire crowd pleaser, and although it takes a little time to simmer in the pot, is really a cinch to make. This has Sunday dinner written all over it.

  2. This dish looks interesting – will have to try on a cold and wet weekend.

  3. This sounds awesome! I love the new cooking term “praised”. 😉

    • Thanks Elaine! It really does come out super moist. I love to make chicken salad with the leftovers because it just takes to a whole nother level!

  5. Nice post. I find out some thing extra challenging on distinctive blogs everyday. It’ll constantly be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my weblog whether you do not mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link on your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Large firms have more than 50 lawyers and are often the most
    reputable because the company has been in existence for many years.
    There should be a correlation between the fault and damage.
    Also, it is important to quickly give your personal injury
