Chicken In Mushroom Wine Sauce Recipe

For This Menu Idea Tonight:

Braised Chicken in a Mushroom Wine Sauce

I used chicken thighs that were boneless skinless and braised them in a mushroom wine sauce that included chicken broth. I love using my new Le Creuset Braiser for braising chicken or any meats in a small amount of liquid.

I started this chicken recipe on top of the stove by browning the chicken thighs in a little oil and butter mix. I drained the excess liquid and then added shallots, and garlic, and mushrooms.

I cooked the mushrooms for a few minutes and added crushed rosemary and 2 teaspoons of soy sauce. I added wine and chicken stock.

I put the chicken in the oven with the lid slightly open for 35 minutes.

To finish, I kept a little bit of chicken stock from the beginning and then added cornstarch. This was added to the chicken to thicken it all into a gravy. I also added a dash of cream and fresh parsley right at the end.

Israeli couscous with Lemon and freshly grated parmesan:

Have you tried Israeli Couscous? It is really nice. It tastes like a pasta but its couscous! It is a great source of fibre and helps to lower cholesterol and keeps you full for a long period of time!

You can flavour it any way you like! For this recipe, I started by sautéing a small amount of onion and then added the couscous to the onion oil mix and browned the couscous. I followed the package directions for the couscous and included 3 long slices of lemon zest. Once the couscous finished cooking, I then added parmesan, black pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Broccoli & Sweet Potato Sides:

For the sides I made my recipes for Air Fried Broccoli and my Roasted & Caramelized Sweet Potatoes. These healthy and delicious sides are on the weekly menu rotation in my house and are so easy to make!
