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.

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

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.
