Equipment You’ll Need:

To begin crafting this culinary masterpiece, gather the following essential equipment:

  • Oven-safe skillet
  • Pot
  • Whisk
  • Potato masher

Ingredients for Culinary Perfection:

Mashed Potatoes:

  • 2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters (about 4-6 potatoes)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

Dijon Cream Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • ½ cup dry white wine (or more chicken broth)
  • 2-3 tablespoons Dijon mustard (or to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Optional garnish: Chopped parsley

Crafting Culinary Magic:

Mashed Potatoes:

  1. Add the potatoes to a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until fork-tender.
  2. While the potatoes cook, move on to preparing the chicken and the sauce.
  3. Strain the water from the potatoes, then add butter, heavy cream, and salt. Mash the potatoes until smooth and creamy using an electric mixer or potato masher.
  4. Cover with a lid to keep warm while the chicken finishes baking.


  1. Season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  2. Melt butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until browned on both sides.
  3. Remove the chicken to a plate. The final cooking will happen in the oven.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Dijon Cream Sauce:

  1. Reduce heat to medium. In the same skillet used for chicken, add butter and minced garlic; cook until butter is melted.
  2. Whisk in flour and let it cook for a minute.
  3. Gradually pour in chicken broth, then white wine, while whisking. Add Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper.
  4. Whisk in heavy cream and let it simmer for 1-2 minutes until slightly thickened to a gravy consistency.
  5. Add the chicken back to the skillet with the sauce. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.

Presentation and Serving:

Serve the chicken and Dijon cream sauce over the velvety mashed potatoes. Garnish with fresh parsley for an extra burst of flavor and visual appeal.
