Fran's House Chicken
A Fran Drescher Favorite!

Ingredients for Chicken

  • 4 single organic, pasture raised chicken breasts (Serves 4-6)
  • 1 tablespoon of organic virgin olive oil (to coat baking dish)
  • 2 tablespoons of dijon mustard, (Grey Poupon Dijon is what I use)
  • 1 tablespoon of basil pesto (I use Basiltops dairy free pesto)

Ingredients for Homemade Dressing

  • 1/3rd of a cup of organic, extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 to a whole squeezed organic lemon


1. Prep the chicken by cutting into small, thin pieces

2. Use the olive oil to coat the baking dish or broiler pan

3. Plop the chicken in the dish

4. Next, schmear the mustard until both sides of the chicken breast pieces are fully covered (the mustard is where all the flavor comes from so spread liberally)

5. Add the pesto on top of the dijon coated chicken schmearing it over all the pieces with a spoon

6. Shove pan in the toaster oven on broil for 10 minutes or until you start smelling it throughout the house! When you smell it, check it. Best part is you don't even have to flip it!

7. Remove from oven to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Remember chicken continues to cook after you take it out of the oven. You can always cook it more but you can’t uncook it.  Plus nobody likes dry, overcooked chicken; not even Samson!

8. Serve warm, room temperature or cold. Great on salad, in a sandwich, cut into pasta, served with a side of vegetables or as a quick protein snack! My fridge is never without Fran's House Chicken.
