The flavors of earthy mushrooms meld perfectly with tangy sun-dried tomatoes, offering a gastronomic delight for your taste buds.
225g sliced mushrooms
- 700g boneless skinless chicken thighs
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp Italian seasoning, divided
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp butter (or alternatives as per your preference)
- 60g sun-dried tomatoes, drained of oil and chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley, plus extra for garnish
- 60ml low-sodium chicken stock (optional)
Start by patting the chicken thighs dry using paper towels. Trim off any excess fat using a sharp knife. In a mixing bowl, combine the onion powder, garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
Seasoning the Chicken:
Ensure each chicken thigh is evenly coated with the seasoning mix.
Cooking the Chicken:
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken thighs, ensuring they aren’t overcrowded. Sear each side until browned and the center is no longer pink, which should take about 8 minutes per side. Transfer the cooked chicken to a plate.
Preparing the Sauce:
Using the same skillet, melt the butter. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and sauté until they're soft, about 3 minutes.
Add the minced garlic and chopped sun-dried tomatoes. Sauté for an additional 2-3 minutes. Stir in the parsley and the remaining 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning.
Cook until fragrant, about a minute. If using chicken stock, pour it in now and let the sauce reduce slightly.
Return the chicken thighs to the skillet, letting them immerse in the mushroom and tomato mixture. Check the seasoning and adjust if necessary.
Garnish and Serve:
Sprinkle some fresh parsley over the chicken for a vibrant finishing touch. Serve hot.
If using sun-dried tomatoes in oil, consider using some of the oil for an added flavor punch while searing the chicken.
For a creamier consistency, stir in a splash of heavy cream or a dollop of cream cheese after adding the chicken stock.
This delightful dish is not only a treat for the palate but also a visual delight. It’s perfect for a family dinner or a special occasion.
Pair it with a side of your choice, and enjoy a well-rounded meal!
