2 T. butter or margarine
2 T. vegetable oil
Serving pieces of chicken for six persons

4 T. flour
1-1/2 cups milk
1-1/2 cups chicken broth
3 generous tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
Step 1. In an electric frying pan, heat the margarine and oil and brown the chicken parts; season, remove and set aside.
Step 2. In remaining fat, cook onion until translucent. To onion, add flour and cook gently, stirring, for five minutes.
Step 3. Combine liquids and heat, bringing nearly to a boil. Add to onion mixture and cook, stirring, until sauce thickens. At this point you may stop and continue later.
Step 4. Bake chicken in 350 degree oven for about one hour or until chicken is tender. Remove chicken to a warm serving platter. To sauce, add mustard and parsley, stirring to blend mixture. Pour over chicken and serve.
Note: The French lady that gave the Kitchen Mouse this recipe also recommends using one large tablespoon of curry powder and two teaspoons of sugar in place of the Dijon mustard. Really can’t say which I prefer!
