Recipes: French Mustard Seed Chicken

Submitted by Nicole Rowley


  • 1/2 pkg bacon
  • 3 lbs chicken thighs
  • Whole seed mustard
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 TBS garlic
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 TBS cornstarch


  • Marinade chicken in a bag with enough mustard to coat for about an hour.
  • Cook bacon in large enough skillet to fit all chicken. Cook until very crispy.
  • Remove bacon turn down heat a few notches, add all chicken flat side down, cook only until crispy, but still red.
  • Flip and cook other side for a minute, chicken will be raw inside.
  • Add chicken to crock pot (or dutch oven style pan) making sure to leave everything in pan.
  • Add diced onions and garlic. Saute. Add wine.
  • Scrape the whole skillet on top of chicken.
  • Cook low for 4 hours. (About 45 minutes in Dutch oven style pan in oven).
  • Remove chicken.
  • Add drippings to a sauce pan. Add milk to cornstarch while cold, mix well. Add mixture to sauce pan. Cook until thickens.
  • Crumble bacon. Add to sauce, drizzle over chicken.

We ended up having much more sauce than needed so only add the amount of sauce desired.

If desired add a hard french cheese such as gruyere, to garnish. Serve with potatoes and rolls.
