Next time you are at the grocery store, pick up a jar of Dijon Mustard! Even if you are not a traditional mustard fan, this pale colored creamy mustard that originated in Dijon, France in 1853 will flip your taste buds.
It is nothing like the bright yellow sharp vinegary stuff we used to slather on hot dogs!
The best news other than great taste is that it has no fat, is exceptionally low in carbs, and has just 5 calories per teaspoon. It’s a kitchen GIFT when compared to the fat and calories in mayonnaise.
I love it as a dipping sauce for cubes of ham & cheese or Aidells Sausages that I have pan seared and thinly sliced.
It adds flavor to my Nut Crusted Chicken – smear one side of each chicken tender with Dijon mustard, dip mustard side into a dish of finely chopped pecans or walnuts , arrange on a sheet pan, sprinkle with Kosher salt and a few grinds of black pepper, and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes . Voila – a snappy moist chicken dish to serve with a quick grape tomato salad.
Make yummy Chicken Dijon – brown turkey or chicken cutlets in a bit of olive oil in a nonstick pan- add chopped garlic. Blend 1/2 cup white wine with 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard in a small bowl; add it to the pan and let it sizzle.
Go outside your zone and you will find that post op life tastes great.
