Ready In:




  • Dust the chicken lightly with flour and brown in 1 tablespoons of the olive oil over medium heat, about 2 minutes on each side.
  • Remove the chicken, set aside.
  • Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan and saute the garlic cloves and mushrooms about 3 to 5 minutes, or until most of the moisture from the mushrooms has evaporated.
  • Add the vinegar, broth, bay leaf and thyme; cook about 5 minutes over medium heat until reduced slightly.
  • Return the chicken to the pan, cover, and simmer another 2 to 4 minutes or until cooked through but not overdone.

    The flavor of this dish is exceptionally good. I used a little Italian Seasoning in addition to the thyme. I also agree with Jenny's review, you do want the sauce to be thicker - cornstarch worked, too. The sauce is so great, you don't want to waste a drop! Thanks!

    Very nice! I reduced this in half for the two of us, and used huge, meaty fresh shiitake for the mushrooms and a mix of dried savory and thyme so I could make this without needing to buy anything... I did thicken the broth a bit with arrowroot as I had to use rice flour to dredge the chicken, and it doesn't thicken much. We enjoyed this very much.

    Very strong vinegar flavor and smell. Did not care for this at all, sorry.

    My boyfriend and I made this for dinner over the weekend. Simple to make and very delicious! We used white sliced mushrooms and a bit more garlic. We also doubled the amount of sauce we made. SO GOOD! Served this with a mushroom risotto (from the box). Thanks for a great date night meal I'll make again.


<p>I live with my husband, four cats, and a sweet mutt named Jada in Scarborough, Ontario, where I work as an elementary school administrative assistant. I have a 31 year old daughter who lives with her boyfriend in nearby Don Mills, along with my sweet granddogs, Frankie and Turbo. I would have to say that my passion is animals, since I have so many of them! <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br />If I had a month off work to do what I please, I would first catch up on my sleep and then just have fun - see a few movies and maybe take a couple of short trips - something that wouldn't break the bank - lol!</p>
