Dijon Chicken and Mushroom Pasta {Gluten-Free}

The other day I stumbled across a dijon chicken pasta recipe and realized that I had enough ingredients on hand to recreate the recipe myself.

Dijon mustard added to pasta?

Brilliant. Why hadn’t I thought of it myself?

Instead of whipping cream for the sauce base I went with creme fraiche – one of my new dairy favorites. If you ask me it makes for an ever better creamy sauce than heavy cream. You must try it.

No almonds on hand so I omitted those, and used button mushrooms instead of crimini or chanterelle.

Oh and I doubled the amount of white wine. Half a cup just didn’t seem like enough.

So though I have no idea how the original recipe tastes I was perfect content with my own recreation of it.

Don’t you just love finding recipes online and then putting your own spin on them?

A creamy and dreamy pasta recipe with chicken, mushrooms and a creamy sauce made of white wine, creme fraiche and dijon. Yum!
Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 pound button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 pound chicken breasts, cut into slivers
  • 4 tablespoons mustard, divided
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 cup creme fraiche
  • ½ cup grated cheese (parmesan, cheddar or mozzarella, etc)
  • salt, pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces linguine pasta (or brown rice/quinoa pasta for gluten free version), cooked according to package directions

  4. To the same pan add white wine, wait for it to reduce by half and the add creme fraiche and mustard. Mix and cook until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Add mushrooms and chicken back to the pan, reduce heat to low and add the cheese. Mix. Add some of the pasta water to the pan if the sauce is too thick.
  5. Serve over pasta.

      If you wanted to make a vegetarian version of this dish you could try to use all different kinds of mushrooms – button, baby bella and the large portabella mushroom caps. I think that would make a great veggie dish!
