Chicken Chausseur - My Way :-)

READY IN: 55mins

I found this recipe on the internet, made a few changes to the ingredients, just based on what I had at home. Made it for dinner last night and it was awesome. I served this on white basmati rice, my favorite rice. This is my very first post here so wish me luck.

This was a lovely, really easy weeknight dinner. I used crimini mushrooms. And I used the oregano and passed on tarragon - not sure about pairing tarragon with such strong herbs like rosemary and thyme. Also, I used a regular cast iron skillet instead of non-stick - I find non-stick makes it almost impossible to brown meat effectively. I also took your cue and made basmati rice to go with the chicken, which was just right. For a vegetable we had roasted asparagus spears (toss rinsed spears with some olive oil, spread on cookie tray, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 5-10 minutes in 450F oven). Great first post Grecorican!
