Easy Chicken with Mushrooms in Tomato Sauce

 Made with ingredients you can easily find at most any grocery store, or already have. Chicken with mushrooms is made with boneless skinless chicken thighs, so it’s not dry like if you would use chicken breasts. It is spiced with pantry stapled salt and pepper cooked on olive oil.

This healthy chicken and mushroom recipe is another way you can turn chicken into a great weeknight meal in under 30 minutes, which is filled with delicious flavors! I like to jazz up the chicken with mushrooms for a quick weeknight meal. 

Chicken with Mushrooms in Tomato Sauce Ingredients 

Chicken thighs: Should be boneless and skinless. It’s easier to work within this recipe. You could substitute for chicken breast, but it may be a little too chewy. Cut any fat off the chicken thighs. 

Olive oil: For the saute.

Onion: Yellow and not the sweet kind. 

Mushrooms: You can use any kind of mushrooms that you like. Most of the time I like to use white mushrooms, shitake mushrooms or cremini mushrooms. 

Tomatoes: Red ones on the vine or heirloom. 

Salt and Black Pepper: For the flavors.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 lb chicken thighs, boneless and skinless 
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 10 oz mushrooms, sliced (any kind you like)
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • salt
  • pepper

How to Make Chicken and Mushrooms in Tomato Sauce:

Saute: Heat a skillet on medium and melt a tablespoon of butter. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and start to saute for about 5 minutes or until it starts to get that nice brown color. Add extra virgin olive oil and chopped onion to the chicken and continue to cook for another 4 minutes. Don’t forget to stir. 

Bring it all together: Add to the skillet sliced mushrooms and chopped tomatoes. Reduce heat to medium-low and saute for 15 minutes with occasional stirring everything. Season with more salt and pepper to your taste. 

Simmer: Cover the skillet and simmer for another 5 minutes.
