Dinner doesn’t need to be complicated. In fact, some of the best dishes contain a mere handful of ingredients. Take this Dijon Mustard Chicken, for example. It highlights four basic ingredients – two fresh and two from your pantry. It’s simple, but so delicious that even the kids will love it. This mustard chicken also pairs well with just about any side dishes you have on hand. Plus, it’s naturally free of top allergens, and suitable for all types of diets, including paleo and keto.
The recipe is a sample from Linda Coss, author of two dairy-, egg-, and nut-free cookbooks: What’s to Eat? and What Else is to Eat?. Linda raised two hungry boys, one of which had multiple food allergies. So she has ample experience in creating fast, easy, and family-friendly meals.
