Creamy Tomato Mushroom Chicken – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I’m always looking for an easy meal that tastes delicious and my Creamy Tomato Mushroom Chicken hits all the high notes.  It’s a quick savory skillet meal that’s perfect on a cold night when you’re craving something tasty.

It starts with dicing boneless chicken breasts that you sear in a pan with mushrooms, onions and a touch of garlic.  The seasonings are simple – salt, pepper and some freshly shredded ginger, highlight the chicken and vegetables beautifully.  A can of crushed tomatoes make the sauce and a touch of cream or coconut milk is added to finish it off and make it silky smooth.

I serve it over hot rice, but quinoa would be lovely too.  It’s one easy dinner that satisfies the pickiest of eaters.
