One-pot dishes are the answer to your weeknight dinner prayers. When you need to get a meal on the table fast, this creamy dijon chicken will be there for you. With just five minutes of prep time and 30 minutes of cook time, you're looking at a delicious dinner in well under an hour.

To develop the most flavor, you first need to brown the chicken in a large frying pan. This is probably the most time-consuming part of the whole recipe — seriously!

Once you've browned and set aside the chicken thighs, it's time to make the sauce. Since you're adding the ingredients — garlic, leeks, Dijon mustard, cream, and chicken stock — to the same pan, those glorious browned bits from the chicken make their way into the sauce. The chicken thighs are then added back into the sauce to finish cooking completely.

Garnish the dish with a little lemon juice, salt, pepper, and fresh parsley. Serve alongside some rice and steamed greens for a complete meal.
