Chicken with Mustard and Pears. Kana pirni ja sinepiga

kanapirniga1 (3)Estonians usually season their dishes with pepper and salt ( You have probably noticed this by now, I believe). Yes, we do have different edible plants that most of us know. But due to our climate we can only use ’’indoor cultivated plants’’ from October to May. However, there is this one ingredient that is able to take away some foreigner’s breath – our strong mustard. Forget about Dijon and sweet mild Finnish and Swedish mustards. Estonian mustard is hot. As this brown dish doesn’t look quite appealing serve it with some green peas or beans.
