  • Reduce heat to medium. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in white wine and cook until it’s reduced by half, about 1 minute.
  • Stir in Dijon mustard and stock. Add butter and cook, stirring, until sauce thickens, about 2 minutes. Add parsley, chives, salt and black pepper.
  • Return chicken cutlets to skillet, tossing in sauce to coat. Serve with buttered noodles, spooning the sauce over the top. Garnish with additional parsley.
