Garlic Mushroom Smothered Chicken

Friday, March 03, 2023

Here's another quick recipe. Less than 3 minutes of prep to get this in the freezer! The keys to speeding up the processed are pre-sliced, pre-washed mushrooms, and pre-diced onion. These seriously make such a huge difference. The onions are especially cost effective, because there is no waste and they save a ton of time. I get a 4lb bag in the frozen veggie section at Gordon's Food Service. Its the equivalent of about 15 onions.


Per serving: 372 calories, 12g carbs, 13g fat, 51g protein

  • 1.5lbs boneless, skinless chicken
  • ​3 tbsp olive or avocado oil
  • ​8oz sliced mushrooms
  • ​2 cups diced onions (2 medium onions)
  • ​1.5 cups coconut milk
  • ​1 tsp thyme
  • ​4 cloves garlic, or 4 tsp minced
  • Salt & black pepper to taste

SLOW COOKER: Cook on low for 4-6 hours if defrosted, or on low for 8-10 hours if frozen.

STOVE/OVEN: Defrost completely and preheat a large, heavy skillet to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the bag and sear 2-3 minutes per side. Add the rest of the bag and simmer for 20-30 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and and sauce begins to thicken.

If desired, thicken slightly with 1-2 tbsp each water & flour of choice. Serve with a side salad.
