30 Minute Chicken with White Wine and Mushroom Sauce
I’m a big fan of chicken thighs, bone in (flavor baby) it’s the cut that I gravitate to first. Sometimes I need a cut that’s going to cook up much much faster. Say when I have a herd of hungry people in my kitchen screaming what’s for dinner, MOM I’m hungry, and the other dozen or so statements that I block out after the first two. Am I the only one? Surely I can’t be. That’s where chicken breast tenderloins come in. They cook up in lickety split and help keep the peace and my headaches at bay.
We add a whole lot of flavor to the chicken with this crazy good and super simple white wine and mushroom sauce. Bonus points because you can have a glass of wine while you’re cooking dinner. I mean you kind of have to, it’s going in the dish and it’s right there in front of you. Right? Right. Whose to argue with logic like that. It takes 30 minutes top to bottom to make this dish. We always have a batch or two of our HOMEMADE CHICKEN STOCK on hand (or in the freezer) and the rest of the ingredients in this recipe are pretty standard staples.
The recipe would go great with rice or even pasta (either one can be cooked in the time it takes the chicken to cook, multi tasking people it’s a good thing). At the very least you’ll want to have a baguette on hand. Otherwise you might end up licking the plate to get all the sauce. Not that there’s anything wrong with that if you’re dining alone. Been there, done that.
