Chicken with Mushrooms and Herbs

This is the first time I have made this dish. I saw a recipe on Pinterest somewhere that had a mushroom, shallot, herb, and sherry. I didn’t actually follow the recipe or even remember all the components, but instead am using it for inspiration. Pinspiration is my new name for Pinterest. I pin tons of recipes. Some I use and follow to a tee (especially when it comes to the baking pins), but mostly I just use as inspiration and do my own thing. It is more fun that way =)

Chicken with Mushrooms and Herbs


4-6 Chicken Thighs (or Breasts pounded)
3 shallots, diced
1 carton of sliced mushrooms
2 tablespoons of dried herbs (you could use fresh if you have it)- I used marjoram and thyme
3/4 cup of dry sherry (cooking wine) or a dry white wine
1/3 stick of butter

Brown your chicken thighs on both sides- about 5-6 minutes. Take them out of the pan.
Add your diced onions, sliced onions, and herbs in your chicken fat and one tablespoon of butter for about 3-4 minute
Add the sherry and the rest of the butter and reduce down for about 5 minutes, then add your chicken back in the pan and continue to cook until chicken is done.

Serve with a veggie and couscous, rice, or potato. Enjoy!
