It’s All About Mushroom


What a wonderful weekend I had, from the tea party with my younger daughter Yanah on Friday to Marc Anthony concert with my older daughter Youricka yesterday, and tonight, all 4 of us will go to the movies to see the Black Panther.

For dinner, I am making chicken with mushroom, Riz au Djon-Djon (called Black Rice or rice with black mushroom which is a Haitian dish), and a simple salad.  I am sharing the Chicken with mushroom sauce recipe with you.  I use chicken thighs instead of chicken breast, don’t ask me why my kids only eat chicken legs and thighs.

Black Rice, Chicken with Mushroom Sauce





Chicken with mushroom sauce recipe

Chicken with Mushroom Sauce


2 teaspoons cornstarch

½ cup fat-free milk

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon butter

½ pound sliced fresh mushrooms

½ medium onion, thinly sliced

2 minced garlic cloves

½ cup dry white wine

¼ cup chicken broth

1/8 teaspoon pepper

½ teaspoon salt

¼ cup parmesan cheese


Mix cornstarch and milk until smooth. Pound chicken with a meat mallet to 1/4-in. thickness, season with salt and pepper.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook chicken until no longer pink, 5-6 minutes per side. Remove from pan and transfer to a serving platter, keep warm.

In the same pan, heat butter over medium-high heat; saute mushrooms, garlic, and onion until tender, add salt and pepper. Stir in wine and cook until liquid almost evaporates. Add chicken broth, cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil. Cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Return chicken to pan, sprinkle parmesan cheese and bake for 15 minutes in 350-degree oven

I hope you enjoy this recipe and share your thoughts with me.  Bon Appetit.


  1. Well for starters I’ve not had mushroom Riz au Djon-Djon before, but it’s surely a great thing to spend quality with family. and it’s even greater to spend such quality time with nice meals..

    My heart simply melts reading this cos growing up, I didn’t get to have this kinda closure with my parents…

  2. This sounds amazing. I love mushrooms and I have been wanting to make something with with it and this looks so awesome. I hope you enjoyed Black Panther, I loved it and am going to see it again this week.

  3. The chicken with mushroom sauce sounds great and it looks fairly easy to make. I’d definitely use the recipe with boneless chicken breast. I haven’t heard of Riz au Djon-Djon before. Sounds interesting.

  4. This sounds delicious! We are the opposite if a recipe calls for chicken thighs we use chicken breast! i want to see Black Panther as soon as we can get a babysitter for my kids.

    • I am not sure why, Stephanie, my girls just don’t like chicken breast. If I was closer, I would babysit so you could go to the movies.

  5. Oh my god this dish look so delicious and comforting. It looks very rich and robust. And I’m so happy that you are spending quality time with your family, girls must be enjoying!!

  6. We make a version of chicken with mushroom, though your Riz au Djon-Djon looks and sounds tastier! We always have mushrooms so we might give this a try.

  7. So glad to hear you had such a lovely weekend- can’t wait to see Black Panther! Plus, this recipe sounds absolutely delicious! I’ve never been a huge mushroom fan but I bet this meal would change that!

    • I sure did, Lois, Some people don’t like to eat mushrooms, surprisingly, my older daughter is very picky and does like that dish.

  8. I actually hate mushrooms but your photos look so good I may try it. My kids LOVE them but since I don’t like them, we rarely cook with them. Its more of a texture thing but again, your pics look YUM!

  9. I anm a huge fan of mushrooms and add them to many dishes! The Chicken with mushroom sauce looks so delicious!!
