“Chicken Supreme, also known as ‘Suprême de Volaille’ holds a place, in the history of early 20th century France. The term ‘supreme’ denotes the portion of chicken, a boneless breast.

Serving Suggestions:

This delicious Chicken Supreme goes perfectly with mashed potatoes and a mix of steamed green veggies, like broccoli, green beans or asparagus. To add a twist you can top it off with chopped parsley or a sprinkle of fresh thyme. A refreshing green salad, with a light dressing would also go well with the sauce.

Storing Instructions:

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. If you wish to keep it longer, you can freeze the chicken and sauce in a freezer-safe container for up to three months. When freezing, remember to separate the chicken from the sauce to maintain the best texture.

Reheating Instructions:

To reheat, preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Place the chicken and sauce in an oven-safe dish, cover with aluminum foil, and heat for about 20 minutes or until warmed through. Alternatively, you can reheat in a skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the chicken is heated and the sauce is bubbling. If reheating from frozen, it’s best to thaw the chicken in the refrigerator overnight before following the reheating instructions.

Succulent chicken breasts are simmered in a rich white wine and mushroom sauce, accented by the savory crunch of pancetta. Perfectly paired with creamy mashed potatoes and vibrant steamed green vegetables, this dish promises a delightful dining experience that's both elegant and satisfying.



Prepare the Chicken:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  3. Place the chicken breasts skin-side down in the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes until golden brown. Flip and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Cook the Pancetta:

  1. In the same pan, add the pancetta and cook for about 5 minutes until crispy. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

Make the Sauce:

  1. Add the butter to the pan. Once melted, add the onions and cook for 5 minutes until softened.
  2. Add the mushrooms and garlic, cooking for another 3-4 minutes until the mushrooms start to soften.
  3. Pour in the white wine and let it reduce by half, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Stir in the chicken stock, double cream, and Dijon mustard. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes until the sauce thickens slightly.

Combine and Cook:

  1. Return the chicken breasts and pancetta to the pan. Add the thyme.
  2. Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened.


  1. Serve the chicken supreme over mashed potatoes with steamed green vegetables on the side. Garnish with a sprinkle of fresh thyme if desired.

For an extra depth of flavor, consider deglazing the pan with a splash of brandy before adding the white wine. If you prefer a thicker sauce, you can add a teaspoon of cornstarch mixed with water to the sauce as it simmers. For a lighter option, substitute the double cream with a lower-fat cream or a plant-based alternative. Adjust the seasoning to taste and feel free to add your favorite herbs for a personal touch.
