This tasty Chicken Cutlets Recipe with Mustard Sauce is a super-quick and easy chicken dinner recipe that’s low-carb, gluten-free, and dairy-free.


  •  4 chicken cutlet slices
  •  1/4 cup almond flour
  •  1 tsp. poultry seasoning
  •  1/2 tsp. Szeged Chicken Rub (see notes)
  •  1/4 tsp. salt (or to taste, but I only used a tiny bit of salt)
  •  fresh ground pepper to taste
  •  2 T butter
  •  3/4 cup chicken broth
  •  1 T Dijon mustard
  •  2 T mayo


  1. Combine almond flour, poultry seasoning, chicken rub, salt, and pepper in flat dish.
  2. Dredge all chicken cutlet pieces in almond flour mixture and set aside.
  3. Heat heavy frying pan big enough to hold all the pieces in one layer, add butter, and melt over medium heat.
  4. Add chicken cutlets and watch until they barely start to brown on the edges, about 2-3 minutes, then turn and cook for about 2-3 minutes longer on the other side.
  5. The chicken is done when it feels firm (but not hard) to the touch. If you have an Instant Read Meat Thermometer, cook chicken to 165F/75C.
  6. Remove chicken to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
  7. Deglaze the pan with chicken stock, stirring well to get browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
  8. Whisk together Dijon and mayothen whisk that into the liquid in the pan.
  9. Cook sauce, whisking the whole time, until it is reduced by about 1/3, about 2-3 minutes.
  10. Pour sauce over chicken and serve immediately.


If you don’t have szeged chicken rub just use your favorite all purpose seasoning that tastes good on poultry.
