CREAMY CHICKEN MUSHROOM AND GARLIC RECIPE

It's so Delicious! I added the suggested white wine and half and half because I didn’t have heavy cream. It didn’t end up thickening as much as it probably would have with the cream, so I added a little corn starch slurry and it thickened nicely. Served with gnocchi and steamed broccoli. My husband thought it was awesome and even my picky kids liked it! Next time I would probably make extra sauce and serve over bow tie pasta.
Creamy Chicken Mushroom and Garlic Recipes

INGREDIENTS

  • For The Chicken:
  • 1 1/2 pounds (700 g) boneless skinless chicken thighs (around 6-8 fillets)
  • 1 teaspoon each onion powder and garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of dried thyme and rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • For The Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 8 ounces (250 g) sliced brown mushrooms
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced (or 1 tablespoon minced garlic)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon each of dried thyme and dried rosemary (adjust to your taste)
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream / thickened cream (evaporated milk or half and half)*
  • 1/2 cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese


INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Pat chicken thighs dry with paper towel and trim off excess fat. Combine the onion powder, garlic powder, herbs, salt and pepper. Coat the chicken evenly with the combined seasoning.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat and sear chicken thighs in batches until browned on each side and no longer pink in center (about 8 minutes each side, depending on thickness).
  3. Add remaining oil if needed for second batch. Transfer to a plate; set aside and keep warm.
  4. To the same pan or skillet, melt the butter and add the mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper and cook until soft (about 3 minutes). Add the garlic, parsley, thyme and rosemary; sauté until fragrant (about 1 minute).
  5. Stir in cream, bring to a simmer, then reduce heat and continue cooking until sauce has thickened slightly. Stir in the Parmesan cheese and allow it to melt through the sauce for a further 2 minutes, while occasionally stirring.
  6. Return chicken to the pan. Taste test and season with salt and pepper to your taste. Garnish with fresh parsley. Serve immediately.

NOTES
*You CAN use fresh herbs if you have them! 2 teaspoons each of fresh herbs is fine. If you don't like Thyme or Rosemary, substitute with Basil and Oregano, or use Tarragon. **Heavy or thickened cream is used for low carb/high fat purposes. If counting calories and/or fat macros instead, use evaporated milk, reduced fat cream or half and half.

EASY GREEK SPAGHETTI BOLOGNESE

February 20, 2020
Greek Spaghetti Bolognese (Makaronia Me Kima), is that the definition of food. Very almost like the Italian Bolognese sauce, only with lots more spices and a thicker texture almost like that of chili.

Type Of Meat To Use for creating Bolognese Sauce

Most people make this sauce using only lean hamburger. Which is what the first recipe involves , and what I also prefer when making this sauce to place during a Moussaka. But what can make this sauce such a lot more flavorful, is that the addition of ground pork.

That’s because beef doesn’t contain enough fat, therefore, looses on flavor. Also, for an equivalent reason, it tends to finish up a touch dry to the taste. That’s also why in most Bolognese Sauce recipes you’ll see the addition of bacon or pancetta thereto.

So if you’re getting to make this sauce for adding on top of your pasta or to form Pastitsio, then definitely choose half hamburger & half ground pork. Pasta absorbs fat like hell and wishes it so as to not be dry.

EASY GREEK SPAGHETTI BOLOGNESE

INGREDIENTS :
  • 40 ml olive oil
  • 1 large onion minced
  • 2 large gralic cloves chopped
  • 650 grams / 1,7 lb lean ground beef or half ground beef & half ground pork

  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 7 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 carrot peeled
  • 1 stick of celery without the leaves
  • kosher salt & ground pepper
  • 500 grams dried spaghetti

INSTRUCTIONS :
  1. Heat olive oil in a medium sized pot over high heat. Caramelize the onion and the garlic.
  2. Add the ground meat. Start breaking it apart with a wooden spoon. Add a bit of kosher salt (to help remove its juices).
  3. Add the cloves, allspice, the bay leaves, thyme, and cinnamon. Pour in the wine and stir until it evaporates.
  4. Once the meat has dried completely from its juices. Add the chopped tomato and tomato paste and stir for a minute or 2. OPTIONAL: At this point, you may add 1-2 tablespoons of flour to thicken the sauce.
  5. Cover with water and add the carrot and celery. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 1 hour and 30 minutes or until sauce is thick enough.
  6. Season with pepper and extra salt if needed.
