One of my favorite people in the whole world is Odil F. You know those positive, warm, “everything is great” people that you just love spending time with? She recently shared this recipe with me and I knew I had to try it. I made it tonight for supper for my family and guests, and they all rated it 10+. I love that it uses regular ingredients that you have in the house, and that it’s an all-in-one dish.


Main ingredients

  • 1 and 1/2 pounds (680 grams) chicken cutlets, cut into strips

  • salt, to taste

  • pepper, to taste

  • garlic powder, to taste

  • Gefen Olive Oil, for sautéing

  • 1 large onion, cut in half, and then into strips

  • 2 large carrots, julienned

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, julienned

  • 1–2 tablespoons flour

  • 1 tablespoon Glicks Soy Sauce

  • 1/4 cup mustard

  • 3 tablespoons Gefen Honey

  • 1/4 cup water, or more as needed

  • scallions, sliced, for garnish


Prepare the Chicken


Place chicken cutlet pieces in a medium-sized bowl. Add garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste (be generous) and toss to coat.


Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet until very hot. Add cutlet pieces and sauté a few minutes on each side until white. (I sometimes cover the skillet halfway through so it cooks more through and through.) When all finished, set aside on a large plate lined with paper towels.


In the same skillet, heat a little more olive oil. Sauté onion for two to three minutes.


Add carrots and sweet potatoes and continue sautéing a few more minutes, until you see the color changing. Stir constantly. Add flour, soy sauce, mustard, and honey and cook over low heat for approximately 15 minutes. After about seven or eight minutes add a little water (start with approximately a quarter cup) to prevent scorching. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary, adding more soy sauce, mustard, or honey.


Add chicken cutlet pieces and continue cooking for an additional 15 minutes partially covered. Once again, add a drop of water if neessary. Remove from heat and allow to steam for 15–30 minutes.


Serve over rice or mashed potatoes, drizzling sauce over all.


If you like your veggies very soft, make sure you julienne them finely. Otherwise, there will still be a slight crunch to them. Also, I used two pounds (900 grams) of chicken cutlets and I found the amount of sauce adequate. Feel free to alter the quantity of the cutlets and/or the veggies to your liking. For a chunkier dish, cut each cutlet into eight cubes instead of strips.

Prepare the Chicken

Yields 6 servings as a one-choice main dish or 8-10 if there are other choices.

chicken strips in honey-mustars sauce I am looking for gluten free recipes for my grandson, who is temporarily living with us. This recipe looks really great and it is the type of thing he would like. Two questions. 1. Can the flour be replaced with potatoe starch or cornflour (or even rice flour)? 2. Can it be reheated in a microwave, as he takes it to school with him? Thank you and Shavuah Tov, Esther Leah

Potato starch should work here. There is such a minute amount anyway. Or even cornstarch as it looks like a thickener for the sauce. I am not a big fan of microwaving cutlets that are best fresh anyway. But in a sauce recipe like this one, it should be ok.
