Dijon Chicken and Broccoli

Dijon Chicken and Broccoli Recipe

I always love a good meal that only uses one pan… much less clean-up later! I tried out a new recipe last night based on this Lean and Green cookbook that I got at a vendor event in my neighborhood a few months ago, and it was really good! Of course, in true Stephanie fashion, I changed up the recipe some because that’s just what I do. Sometimes it’s on purpose, sometimes I make a mistake in the prep or cooking and just have to roll with it from there… this was a little bit of both.

Now, if you don’t like mustard, don’t let the dijon part turn you away from this immediately. I don’t really care for mustard, but it is necessary and can be good in the right meals. In fact, that’s something I plan to change in this recipe, too; I want to lower the amount of dijon because it was almost a little too much for my tastes. I am going to make that adjustment in the recipe I post, so you can always add more if you want the extra flavor.
