3 tbsp butter, divided
2 large chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise

How to make Creamy Honey Mustard Chicken
Step 1: To make 4 smaller cutlets, cut the chicken in half lengthwise. Sprinkle the chicken cutlets with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Then, coat the cutlets in flour.
Step 2: In a skillet, heat the olive oil with 1 tbsp butter over medium-high heat. Add the pieces of chicken once the oil is hot and sear for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side until golden. Decrease the heat if the oil begins to splatter a lot. Set the chicken pieces aside when done.
Step 3: Remove the pan from the pan and the remaining butter. Pour in the chicken broth and add the Dijon mustard and honey.
Step 4: Place the pan back on the stove and set the heat to medium. Stir the sauce until the mustard has completely dissolved, making sure that the liquid does not fully reduce.
Step 5: Next, add the cream. Return the chicken to the pan once the sauce is bubbling again. Continue to cook for about 5 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked and the sauce has reduced.
For this recipe, I used a 10 to 14-inch Lodge cast-iron skillet. You can use any skillet if cast iron is not available.
Once the chickens’ internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F, it is safe to eat.
Since we are cutting the chicken in half lengthwise, I recommend using fairly large boneless/skinless chicken breasts. If using small chicken breasts, use four and simply leave them whole.
If you have concerns with sodium content, use low-sodium chicken broth.
