Creamy Dijon Mustard Sauce with Capers

Recipe Information

Total Time: 

15-20 minutes


1.5 cups

This creamy sauce starts with a basic velouté and adds zest to grilled or roasted poultry.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • Juice of one lemon


Melt butter over medium heat until it begins to foam. Add flour all at once, and keep stirring, until the flour is evenly dispersed and the mixture (roux) just starts to brown. Add the chicken stock slowly while stirring with a whisk, dissolving lumps as you go. Simmer until thick, about 1-2 minutes, and finish by blending in the capers, mustard, and lemon juice.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with grilled or roasted poultry or over noodles.
