Honey Mustard Mushroom Chicken + Fried Potato Cubes

DSC_0035

I have seen a few honey-mustard chicken recipes on pinterest, but I didn’t like the look of any of them. So I decided to take a crack at it and make my own. The honey-mustard mushroom cream sauce was really good, and this dinner was a real winner. As for the potatoes, I saw them on food network on some show and thought they looked so pretty. They ended up being super delicious, and may be my new favorite way to prepare potatoes.

Remove garlic and thyme. Add mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes. Add cream, mustard and honey. Head until reduced, about 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve sauce on top of chicken.
