To note: since the Dijon mustard is already quite spicy, there is no need to add salt and pepper to the meat in this recipe. Instead, I suggest adding an herb like chopped parsley or snipped chives.


1- Heat a frying pan over high heat and add the butter.

2- When the butter foams, add the chicken pieces and let them brown for about 5 minutes before turning them over.
