August 12: St. Jane Frances de Chantal Poulet à la Moutarde

4 facts about Saint Jane:

1. Her father was president of parliament at Dijon…and this recipe has a ton of Dijon mustard!

2. Jane was happily married to a man who let daily Mass be celebrated in their home, had four children with him, and then suffered the death of her husband in a shooting accident.

3. Her spiritual director was Saint Frances de Sales.

4. Together, they made a religious community, the Visitation sisters (a cloistered order that has produced many saints!).

2 tips with this recipe:

1. I know I have been on a Lavender and Macarons kick, but here is one more recipe you gotta try, and honestly, I have no tips. It is perfect the way it is. Maybe add a pinch of salt before serving. But that’s it.

2. Serve with mashed potatoes or white rice.


8 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin-on
6 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon whole grain Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons butter
5 tablespoons Crème fraîche
1 cup chicken broth
10-15 fresh thyme sprigs
1 bay leaf
1 small onion, sliced
1 small shallo,t sliced
2 tablespoons parsley chopped
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
