Fat Tuesday

In case this will be your last meaty meal for a while, dear reader, why not to try this chicken recipe I made last night. Quick & easy, an the results are rather yummy. And oh, yes, it is FATTY.
For 2, you'll need:
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts slightly rubbed with salt & pepper
1 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tbs. mustard (preferably stone-ground)
grated Asiago, Manchego or Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese to taste
salt & pepper to taste

Heat butter and oil in large skillet; while heating, pat chicken dry and rub it slightly with salt and pepper. When butter-oil mix stopped foaming, ease chicken into pan and brown on both sides until almost done. Meanwhile, mix broth, mustard and cream and add to pan. Bubble on low until chicken is done and sauce has thickened slightly. Grate the cheese on top if you so desire just before serving
You can serve it over rice, or like I did, over steamed vegetables.
