Now all you need are some mushrooms and a couple of large boneless skinless chicken breasts and you have a whole new meal to serve your family. The mushrooms I chose were on sale - white button mushrooms, use whatever mushroom you can get on sale.
There is really no measuring of ingredients in this dish; we're creating from scratch and going to the spice cabinet to see what spices will make the chicken taste good. After all, chicken is just bland until you spice it up!
- left over mashed potatoes - partially reheated
- 1/2 sweet onion - sliced
- chicken - boneless skinless (my two pack was 1.34#)
- 4 oz. pkg. white button mushrooms
- chicken broth
- granulated garlic
- onion powder
- salt and black pepper
- olive oil
In the same skillet you browned the mushrooms and onion, add in some more butter and a slight drizzle of olive oil. Sear the room temperature chicken breast over medium to medium high heat for about 1-2 minutes per side. The chicken is actually about 3/4 cooked at this point.
While the chicken is searing reheat your left over mashed potatoes in the microwave for about 2-3 minutes. Remove and stir with a fork.
