    Dijon-style mustard

Directions
1.
Place each chicken piece between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Pound with a meat mallet to about 1/2-inch thickness. Remove plastic wrap. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
2.
In a 12-inch skillet, cook chicken in hot butter over medium-high heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning once. Remove from skillet.
3.
For sauce, carefully stir water into skillet, scraping up the crusty browned bits from bottom. Add celery; cook and stir for 1 minute. Add jelly, lemon juice, and mustard; cook and stir about 3 minutes more or until slightly thickened. Return chicken to skillet; heat through.
Tip
  • For best results, lightly pound the chicken breast pieces using the flat side of a meat mallet. Work from the center to the edges until an even thickness is reached.
