3. Wrap each fillet loosely in aluminum foil and place in a steamer set over a saucepan of boiling water. Cover and steam for 30 minutes or until chicken is tender. Remove steamer from pan, set aside and keep warm.
4. To make sauce, place stock, wine and mustard in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer until mixture is reduced by half. Pour stock mixture into a bowl and cool for 5 minutes. Stir in yogurt and chives and serve with chicken.
