Excited to share this recipe with you because it is not only delicious, but it combines two of my favorite elements. Chicken and Mushrooms!

Had this dish for supper a couple of days ago – and I can assure you it went down!

So easy to prepare, with just a few ingredients but rich in flavor. The mushrooms bring such an earthy, grounding flavor that you won’t want to stop eating.

Ingredients

  • 6 Chicken Thighs

  • 300g fresh Mushrooms, slices

  • 1 Medium Onion, chopped

  • 2 Cloves Garlic, minced

  • 3 Sprigs fresh Thyme

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Seasoned Salt

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper

  • 1 Tablespoon Butter

  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil

  • 1/2 cup Milk

  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch

  • 1 Tablespoon Cream of Mushroom soup

  • 1 1/2 cups Chicken stock

Directions

  • For the chicken thighs, make sure they are clean, and fresh. I kept the skin on, however – those who may not like chicken skin – feel free to remove it. 😊
  • I proceeded to marinate the chicken for an hour or so in seasoned salt, pepper, 2 Tablespoons of Olive oil and fresh Thyme. Again, very simple seasoning here – cos we don’t want too many spices to overpower the mushroom flavor. 😊
  • Once done, in a hot pan with the remaining oil, sear the chicken thighs for about 7 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and set aside once done. 😊
  • While the chicken cooks however, proceed to chop up the mushrooms. I used a mix of both white button and brown large mushrooms. I like the depth of flavor they both bring and the contrasting colors as well. 😊
  • Once the chicken is removed from the pan, add the butter add saute the onion and garlic for about 3 minutes. 😊
  • Then add the mushroom to the pan, and season with salt and pepper. 😊
  • Next, pour in the chicken stock. You can make your own by boiling the leftover scraps from a chicken carcass, with some spices of your choice. Or you can use a store bought version. As long as you have about a cup and a half to use. 😊
  • Add the chicken stock to the pan with the mushrooms and allow that to simmer for about 3 minutes. 😊
  • Next, mix the cornstarch and cream of mushroom soup in a small bowl with the milk. Combine till smooth before adding the slurry to your pan. 😊
  • Allow the sauce to come together, and simmer on medium heat for about 10 minutes. Depending on how thick you’d like the sauce to be…you’re welcome to add a quarter of a cup of chicken stock (not water) if you want a more…watery consistency. 😊
  • Transfer to a serving bowl, garnish and serve as desired. 😊
  • Had mine with mashed potatoes and broccoli, right before I died and went to heaven! This was so delicious guys! I promise you….😊
