For the Brine:

  • 1 large Chicken Breast
  • Water
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt

For the Marination:

To Cook:

  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Cream
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Onion Powder


  • Grab a large bowl and place your clean rinsed Chicken breast (cut into half) into the bowl. Pour water over it and add salt. Mix everything, this is your brine. Leave the chicken in that for 30 minutes minimum so that the chicken remains tender and juicy when cooking.
  • Once the chicken has brined, discard the water. Add the Mustard paste to the chicken and spread all over. The chicken needs to marinate in the mustard paste for minimum 30 minutes
  • To start cooking, heat up a pan with the oil and place your marinated chicken breast with the mustard sauce into the pan.
  • Pour the cream, water over the chicken and season with black pepper and onion powder.
  • Mix everything and cook your chicken on all sides over medium to low heat. Cook until chicken is done, if you are not sure use a meat thermometer and poke into the thickest part of the chicken. The temperature should be around 170 Fahrenheit/ 75 Celsius, that's when your chicken is done.
  • Serve hot with a side of your choice.
