Coconut-Mustard Chicken

I am a sauce girl! Creamy, delicious, and saucy is my food love language. It’s too bad that most cream sauces are not the best option for you as they can be loaded with unhealthy fats and other not so good ingredients. Here is my new favorite sauce. It is so good, full of flavor, and clean! So good, even my one year old devoured hers.
