A quote for today

 “Clean as you go. Drink while you cook. Make it fun. It doesn’t have to be complicated. It will be what it will be.”

So, let’s get our one skillet Chicken and Mushrooms in Red Wine Sauce Going.

 

Put a skillet on at medium high and eyeball just enough olive oil to cover the bottom. Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken filets. Cook them about 3-5 minutes a side depending on their thickness. You can test them with a finger poke and when they are firm or when the juices run clear they are done. Or when they read 165 on an instant read meat thermometer. I really recommend using a meat thermometer. They are not at all expensive and well worth the small investment. I recommend this one.

 

Chop and slice the veggies as the chicken is cooking. About the veggies. Beyond the mushrooms and the onions just let your tastes and imaginations run wild.

 

Remove the filets to a dish that will catch the drippings.

 

Put all of the veggies and the butter in the skillet and flip or toss them often as they cook.

When they are starting to soften up add the wine.
