Garlic Chicken

This is a family favourite and is so easy to prepare.



4 chicken thighs  ( I used deboned chicken breasts)

salt and freshly ground black pepper

about 5 cloves of garlic, chopped

1 onion finely chopped

half a punnet of mushrooms, chopped

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon butter

1 teaspoon of parsley

2 teaspoons mixed herbs

1 teaspoon flour (optional)


Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Salt and pepper liberally and allow to temper on a cutting board while you prepare the garlic.

In a large ovenproof saute pan over medium heat, cook the onions, mushrooms and garlic in olive oil and butter, stirring occasionally, until lightly golden, about 10 minutes.

Increase the heat to medium high and brown the chicken  until it is golden brown , about 5 minutes.

Turn the chicken over, sprinkle on herbs.

Turn  the heat down and simmer for about 30 minutes until soft.

The sauce can be thickened if needed.


Serve it with rice  and veggies.
