Lots of flavor in this easy weeknight meal! The Dijon mustard adds a nice rich flavor and the fresh thyme adds a lovely freshness to the dish. The other great thing about this dinner is that it’s a one-pan main course.
As for the sides, you can pair this savory sauce with really anything you and your family are in the mood for! Serve with steamed or roasted veggies, some thin spaghetti or even some steamed rice!
