For the Chicken

  • 4 chicken thighs or thin chicken breasts I prefer thighs for this recipe, but breasts will be tasty too!
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

For the Stew

  • 4 tbsps butter unsalted
  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms I like to use button mushrooms and slice them on my own but you can buy mushrooms too!
  • 1 medium white onion sliced thin
  • 2 tbsps garlic minced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 3 tbsps flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • bunch of thyme


  • Start by slicing mushrooms, onions, and mincing garlic.
  • If using chicken thighs, pat them dry. Season your chicken with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Sear on high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until light golden brown, remove from the pan.
  • In the same pan you seared your chicken, sautée your onions garlic and mushrooms.
  • Add in butter, spices, and flour and stir for one minute.
  • Add in chicken broth, and thyme and mix. Place your chicken back in the pan. Cover and cook on low heat for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.

    Absolutely loved this meal with brown rice and brussel sprouts! I just had to cook it a little longer since I used bone in thighs!!

    Absolutely delicious. I wanted way more sauce because I wanted to be able to put it over pasta, and I had a pound of mushrooms from the store, so I doubled all of the sauce ingredients. It made a lot more sauce than I really needed. I also wanted something more hands off and more of a braise, so after I brought the sauce to a boil, I put the chicken thighs back on top and transferred the pan to a 350° oven for 45 minutes.
