Mushroom Smothered Chicken Recipe

Mushroom Smothered Chicken Recipe

This easy mushroom smothered chicken recipe is tender boneless chicken in a garlic lovers mushroom sauce with sliced mushrooms and scallions. It’s one of my family’s favorite recipes. I love it because it is an easy recipe and a quick weeknight dinner recipe.

Dinner is the most important time to me.

It means coming home and sitting down with my family and catching up on their day.

In between coming home and sitting down is a time I dread.

The meal planning, preparation, and clean-up of the dinner.

This week, we were sent Terra’s Kitchen for review.

It’s a food delivery service that believes in sourcing clean, sustainable ingredients that follow the principles of the Mediterranean lifestyle.

To get started, we first visited the Terra’s Kitchen website (which is no longer active) and scrolled through what seemed like an endless variety of menus.

After much debate, my husband and I agreed we would try the Garlic Mushroom Smothered Chicken.

Then we waited, and FedEx delivered our Terra’s Kitchen vessel.

Delivery is right to the door.

The vessel is a cool concept.

It’s self-contained.

There is no box to throw away.

You simply bring it in, break the seal on the handles and open it up.

My daughter calls it the “Magic Cube”.

It’s like a mini-refrigerator.

Everything is packaged and stored inside in containers that keep the food fresh.

It was shelf after shelf of perfectly portioned, whole foods, to be used for our selected dinner.

We could not believe how much food there was tucked inside the vessel.

We set the vessel back outside the next day, where it was delivered, and FedEx automatically returns to pick it up.

No phone calls, no effort on our end.

Just set it out and forget it.

I came home from a long day at work, and honestly, I was sort of dreading it.

I enjoy cooking, but in the past, meal delivery to our door has involved a lot of prep work.

I didn’t feel like an hour-long cooking marathon, but I had committed, and I was ready.

I read through the included Terra’s Kitchen Welcome Pack.

And then I got started.

The vessel includes the menu recipe and preparation directions inside the Welcome Pack.

A couple of things I want to share before we continue.

I love the prep sheet.

Not only does it include easy-to-follow instructions with colored photographs of each step, and a breakdown of what they send and what I need, but there are beer and wine pairings as well as conversation starters!

I think this is such a classy addition.

 I thought it was gorgeous in the pan.

I tasted it and Wow! It has so much flavor.

I plated it.

So pretty; right?! And looked at the juices! Mmmm…..

I called my family to dinner.

My husband thought I was kidding. “Already?!”

There are a couple of things I want to point out.

Terra’s Kitchen ingredients were high-quality.

I did not have to trim the chicken.

There were no roots on my scallions, and the cuts were consistent throughout the green onions.

The mushrooms were clean, sliced and no one complained of “grit.”

This is a one-pan meal.

This means I am not cleaning up after dinner.

It was seriously one pan, one plate, the meat tenderizer, and a spoon.

That’s all I used for this meal.

None of us could finish a portion.

It was so delicious and so filling.

My son even said, “This is so good, I don’t want to stop, but I can’t fit another bite in my belly!”

We served it the next right over noodles and found it to be every bit as good as the first night.

The food left us full, without that heavy feeling.

Terra’s Kitchen is like having a personal sous chef!

Imagine coming home to everything you need for dinner sliced, diced, cleaned, and ready to roll.

The quality is exceptional and our Terra’s Kitchen Garlic Smothered Chicken Recipe is one we would make and eat again.
