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.
Chicken with mushroom sauce recipe
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.
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…
Kossy, I always enjoy spending time with my girls, and particularly when I can do the same activity with both.
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.
Angela, I loved the movie and mostly, it was a great to be able to enjoy it together with my family,
This looks so yummy!!! But the best part of all of this is the family time you are getting with your girls!! Such a great mom!! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you, Whitney.
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.
Brandi, Riz au Djon-Djon is a dish from my native country Haiti.
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.
This looks and sounds delicious. I LOVE mushrooms and am always happy to find new recipes that include them!
It was really delicious, Arielle.
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!!
They did, Anshika.
I pinned this for later! My husband and daughter love mushrooms so I’m going to have to give this a try!
It is simple and delicious, Christina, thank you.
Weirdly enough mushrooms make me throw up every time I eat them 🙁
Stay away from mushroom, Gigi, sorry.
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.
Try, and let me know, Joline.
This dish looks amazingly delicious and satisfying. Your weekend sounds so enjoyable, spent with good food and family activities.
I had a wonderful weekend with the family, Jessica, and you know, eating was the best part of the weekend.
My husband would absolutely love this. He’s obsessed with mushrooms. Sounds so yummy.
Mine loved it, Jessica.
Side topic- obsessed with your dishware! Where is it from? Esp that salad bowl!
I got it at Home Goods last year, Kate.
The chicken mushroom sauce looks amazing! I can’t wait to make it at home. I hope you had a lovely weekend.
It was a lovely weekend Ifeoluwa.
Ooooh, that chicken and mushroom sauce looks amazing! I’m definitely putting this one on my list to try.
Try and let me know, Christina.
Man, my husband would love this! He loves mushroom. Me, not so much a fan
Make it for him, Amanda, and let me know.
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.
This looks like such a yummy and nutritious dinner. My kids would love this!
Mine, did enjoy it, April.
This looks delicious! Unfortunately, I am allergic to mushrooms so I can’t enjoy it but I am going to try this recipe for my husband who loves everything about the mushroom. 🙂
Sorry to hear about your allergy Mayuri, be careful if you are making any mushroom dish for your hubby,
This looks absurdly great. I always try to use mushrooms where I can.
It’s one dish, where I absolutely love mushrooms, Wells B.
I love mushrooms and this sauce sounds amazing!! Reminds me of a similar mushroom sauce my mom makes!
I would love to try your mom sauce, Angie.
This looks so delicious! I’m a huge fan of mushroom anything. I’ll be adding this to my menu for next month!
Let me know, how you like it, TE.
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!
Thank you, Jillian.
This looks super delicious. I love mushrooms in pretty much anything! It’s one of my favorites!
It was indeed super delicious, Holly.
I love chicken and mushrooms. My favorite soup when I was little was cream of mushroom soup so I really cannot try mushroom recipes enough.
I have a feeling, you will enjoy trying this recipe, Rachel.
My husband would love this! Definitely going to make it for him!
I hope your husband does love this dish as much as mine, Cheri.
I have never been a fan of mushrooms. But outside of that I think each dish does look tasty
I did not like mushrooms as a kid, Erica, once I started cooking, I eat everything that I did not like as a child.
Yes yes yes! I love mushrooms! That mushroom with chicken looks so good! Seems like the perfect comfort food!
It was, Tonya.
Looks amazing!!! Annnnd… How was the concert? 😛
The concert was fabulous, Sahar, we had a blast.
I anm a huge fan of mushrooms and add them to many dishes! The Chicken with mushroom sauce looks so delicious!!
The sauce took our palate to heaven, Angela.
Oh yummy, this looks amazing! I love mushrooms but my hubby is pretty picky about the dishes that contain them, lol.
If you were closer, you could have come over and enjoyed our meal with us, Justine.
i’m all about mushrooms so i really wanna try this!
Try and let me know, Jasmine.
This looks delicious! My kids prefer dark meat chicken, too. So strange!
Our kids have their own taste, Krystal.
I think sauces are the most easiest and most fun ways to spice up a dish. I love mushroom and this variation might also be good on pasta 🙂
You are absolutely right, Katrina.
I am with you that mushrooms make dishes so much better. Not just texture and taste. i would love to try this recipe out. I may have to make it for meals this week at work.
Try and let me know, David.
Wow I’ve never made recipes with mushrooms but I’m willing to try these.
I am a foodie, Joy, I always try new recipes. Hope you try this one and like it.
I absolutely love mushroom and wont mind making a whole dish using just that. Great post!
Thank you, Msddah, try this and let me know if you like it.
Wow, fantastic blog layout! How lengthy have you ever been running a blog for?

I love mushrooms, thanks for sharing!

My husband loves mushrooms, and I love adding it to my pasta. Your recipe will give delight to our next dinner 🙂
