Chicken with Sautéed Mushrooms

Chicken with Sautéed Mushrooms

Chicken with Sautéed Mushrooms is a great meal to make for any weeknight. It's quick and easy to make, only requiring one main pan. This is definitely a comfort food of ours and is a hearty winter meal. Serve with a side of rice or noodles, plus your favorite or seasonal vegetables for a complete meal. Can we suggest serving this chicken on a bed of Easy Baked Spaghetti Squash?

Some of our favorite sides to this delectable chicken includes a light spinach fruit salad and our honey mustard roasted carrots that makes an overall complete and filling meal. We do our best to include recipes that are lower in fat and calories than some of their counterparts. We also experiment in our test kitchen, finding the best flavor combinations we can.

This recipe yields about 3 servings. Double the recipe for a family-sized meal, or for meal prep/leftovers for later in the week. Store in an air-tight container for up to a week in the fridge.
