Cook With Me: Easy Peasy Lemon Chicken with Mushrooms

Hi Everyone!

I was looking over my blogs list, and realised that I had not done a recipe post in a while. I absolutely love chicken and any experimental cooking that I do usually involves, well, chicken!

So here is another one. The Husband bought some mushrooms on the way back home and I had some chicken in the freezer. So I started putting this and that together. Fortunately I remembered to click a few photos along the way.

The end result.... some finger licking and clean plates!






Ingredients:





  1. 500-600 gms of chicken on the bone (give better and richer flavour than boneless)
  2. 1 medium sized onion, chopped
  3. 5-6 cloves of garlic,pealed and crushed
  4. Garlic an Inch and a half knob, crushed
  5. Juice of half a lemon
  6. Some Rosemary or any herbs that you would like to use (I had this at home)
  7. Black pepper crushed about a teaspoon
  8. Any creamy dressing, I had this honey mustard one.
For the Sauce: 

  1. 250 gms of button mushrooms, thickly sliced
  2. 1 teaspoon olive oil (or any of your choice)
  3. 1 cup milk
  4. 3 tablespoons of wheat flour
  5. Salt to taste

Method:
  1. Wash the chicken well.
  2. Put it in a pressure cooker with a cup of water, ginger, garlic and onions. Keep the burner flame high till the first whistle. Then reduce to simmer for the next 5 minutes.
  3. While the chicken is in the cooker, heat 1 teaspoon for olive oil, and sear the sliced mushrooms on a high flame.
  4. Lower the heat and add a cup of milk and wheat flour and stir till all the lumps disappear.
  5. Increase heat and bring to a boil,reduce heat when the sauce  begins to thicken.
  6. Add the boiled chicken to this sauce and add salt to taste.
  7. Add rosemary, crushed black pepper and the dressing to this sauce. Simmer for about 5 minutes. turn off the heat.
  8. Add the lemon juice after 5 minutes.
  9. Serve hot with pasta or bread.
Note: You may add colourful vegetables like broccoli, bell peppers of different colours add a greater nutritional punch! 


Bon Apetit!
