Chicken Dijon

I love this recipe.  It's one of those oldies but goodies--the kind you haven't made in a while and then wonder why the heck not.   It's easy, tastes great, and  I love that it doesn't have a can of cream of            soup in it.  It's all pantry ingredients--but not those pantry ingredients, you know?

Chicken Dijon

2 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 1/4 cups brown rice

2 Tbsp butter
3/4 cup diced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp flour
1 3/4 cup chicken stock
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 1/2 cups cooked diced/shredded chicken (I use my leftovers from the roasted chicken)
1 1/2 Tbsp fresh parsley, minced (you can use dried too, fresh just packs more flavor)
Salt and pepper

In a stock pot, bring 2 1/2 cups chicken stock to a boil and stir in brown rice.   Return to a boil and cover pan, reducing heat to a simmer.  Cook for about 1 hour or until rice in cooked through. 

When rice is nearly finished cooking, start sauce. 

In a large sauce pan, melt butter and cook onions until tender.  Add in garlic and cook until fragrant.  Sprinkle in flour and heat for about two minutes.  Add in stock, stirring to combine.  Once sauce has thickened, stir in Dijon mustard, chicken, and parsley.  Heat through and season with salt and pepper to taste.  Serve over rice and additional parsley for garnish, if desired.

Dijon mustard and garlic were just made to go with chicken! This recipe sounds wonderful. I make a similar one with cream but your version is much better for you :) Thank you for sharing it with the Hearth and Soul Blog Hop.
