Ingredients

2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter

½ lb. baby potatoes – halved or quartered as needed (they should be no large than 1” piece)
2 tsp Italian blend seasoning OR Herbs de Provence
salt and pepper to taste

Dijon cream sauce:

2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 c. heavy cream
1 c. chicken broth – I used low sodium
¼ tsp cracked black pepper – or to taste
½ tsp salt – or to taste

How to make Chicken and Potatoes with Dijon Cream Sauce

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees.

Step 2: In a large bowl, mix the chicken and potatoes, then drizzle with a tbsp olive oil. Toss to coat and liberally sprinkle with salt and pepper, and Italian seasoning blend (or Herbs de Provence).

Step 3: melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. After the butter has melted, drizzle in 1 tbsp olive oil. Stir, then add the chicken to one side of the pan and the potatoes on the other side. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes, undisturbed. Then, flip the chicken and continue to cook for 3 to 4 minutes more until both sides are browned. To a plate, transfer the chicken and potatoes when done and keep them warm.

To make the sauce:

Step 4: Melt the butter in the same skillet over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, stir in the garlic and cook for about a minute until aromatic.

Step 5: Pour in the chicken broth and add the Dijon mustard, stirring. Then, add the heavy cream, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

To assemble:

Step 6: Add the chicken and potatoes back to the pan. Toss to coat.

Step 7: Shift the pan into the preheated oven and bake the chicken and potatoes for about 15 to 20 minutes or until completely cooked and the potatoes are tender.

Step 8: Over the chicken and potatoes, spoon the Dijon sauce from the pan. Serve garnished with some freshly cracked black pepper and fresh herbs. Enjoy!
