  2. Sprinkle half on the chicken breast and add the remainder to flour.
  3. Heat oil in large sauté pan on medium-high heat.
  4. Remove 3 tablespoons of seasoned flour and set aside.
  5. Dredge chicken in remaining seasoned flour and sauté for 2–3 minutes each side.
  6. Remove chicken and set aside on a plate to rest. Remove all but a few tablespoons of the oil; add shallots and sauté until slightly translucent.
  7. Whisk in flour until smooth and start to gradually add stock while continuing to whisk. After 5 minutes of cooking on medium-high heat, lower heat and whisk in mustard, chicken bouillon and unsalted butter.
