This is a chicken dish over grilled onions, topped with a honey dijon mustard, cheese, green onions, and tomatoes. Pure bliss.
There used to be this restaurant where I live that had this dish on their menu. I loved it. They closed down, and I was heart broken. They still have a bar opened here that serves their steaks and oh my they are so good. But their actual restaurant is over an hour away, and with a baby I just never get the chance to go. I had to learn to make this chicken Dijon myself. I was lucky my friend Ryan used to work there! I immediately started blowing up his phone with text messages asking if he had the recipe, and he did!! I was so happy. Many many texts later, we finally came up with a recipe.
Now the restaurant uses a honey mustard, we both decided it would be better to make our own. You could use a store bought honey mustard, but just sample a few first. You do not want an overly sweet honey mustard.
This recipe is delicious and the perfect balance of flavors. I hope you give it a try!
