Let’s get started!!!

Constantly stirring with a spatula until cheese is dissolved. Remove stew pot from the heat, pour wine and add wholegrain mustard. Mix all ingredients well.
- Cut chicken fillet in halves. Place pieces of fillet between two layers of food film and lightly beat it with the meat mallet. Massage it a little bit with some salt and ground black pepper. Heat 1-2 tablespoons sunflower oil in a large frying pan on high heat and fry pieces of chicken about 2-3 minutes each side, until evenly golden.
- Put fillet in ovenproof dish and pour on top with cheese and mustard sauce. Bake in the oven about 10-15 minutes until sauce is bubbling and golden. That’s all! Quick and easy! Isn’t it?
