This satisfying stew stars chunks of chicken and tender braised escarole in a flavorful Dijon wine sauce. Try it with boneless, skinless chicken thighs or pork tenderloin, if you prefer. It doubles easily in the same pot. Serve with rustic whole-grain bread.

Prep: 35 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes
  • 1/4 cup
  • 2 tablespoons
    Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon
  • 1 tablespoon
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup
    sliced shallots
  • 1/4 cup
    chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon
    chopped fresh rosemary, or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 cup
    dry white wine
  • 1 pound
    boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces

    reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/8 teaspoon
