Sluttishly Savoury: Chicken with mushrooms and thyme


Thursdays are the day I'm most likely to be eating a ready meal from M&S and not giving a damn. It's getting to be an expensive habit. Instead, a fast dinner with bits and bobs that I'm likely to find in the back of the fridge is my compromise.This chicken dish is the perfect 'what the hell am I going to have for tea?' dinner. It's simple, it's cheap, it's quick and it tastes brilliant.

Chicken with mushrooms (serves 2 with salad or greens)
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes

You'll need:
  • 4 chicken breasts or boneless thighs
  • 300g mushrooms, destalked
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 glass white wine
  • 250ml chicken stock
  • 1 sprigs fresh thyme
  • A bit of chopped parsley for garnish, it's tasty but it's a very brown dish.
Make it!
  1. Season and brown the chicken on all sides in a large pan, 
  2. Throw in the mushrooms and turn down onto a low heat.
  3. As they're softening, add the garlic and thyme and pour on the stock and white wine.
  4. Simmer for about 15 minutes, until the liquid has formed a rich sauce.
  5. Sprinkle on the parsley and serve alongside a simple salad or buttered greens. Or all of the carbs, depending on how your day has gone. (It tastes great with lentils mixed into the stock.)
  6. Settle in front of the telly with the rest of the bottle of wine.
