Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

Chicken with Portobellos

5 WWPP Posted by 4 years ago 10 Comments

I’ve been trying to post this for days! Weeks, actually!

The first time I made this it was simply to use up some Portobello Mushrooms I had in the fridge. Little did I know BOTH husband and child would go gaga over it.

Of course Little Guy didn’t eat the mushrooms themselves, but he loved the chicken and devoured the noodles/rice that were smothered in the gravy. Chicken with Portobellos The Husband, however, ate everything and said, “it was really good!”

When this happens I must share! Here’s what I did.

  • 1 lb of boneless chicken breast cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 of a large vidalia onion chopped
  • 3 large Portobello Mushroom caps cut into cubes
  • 1 15oz can of chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Thyme
  • 3 tbsp whole wheat flour

Spray a large skillet and brown the chicken with the onion and mushrooms over medium-high heat.

Chicken with Portobellos  - step 1

Add the broth, Worcestershire Sauce, soy sauce, garlic powder, and thyme and bring it to a boil.

Chicken with Portobellos  - step 2

Stir in the flour and continue to boil until thickened.

The boys liked it over noodles but my favorite was brown rice. Nutritional Information doesn’t include either.

    Looks amazing! Would button mushrooms work too? They wouldn't have the meatiness of the portobello, so I'm wondering if they would hold up. Reply

    I'm sure it will still taste good but you are right, they may melt away a bit more. Reply

    We did well. VERY lucky here. Power mostly stayed on but kids are off school today. Lots of trees down. We had a great post-storm day yesterday... http://ronisweigh.com/2011/08/my-day-in-pictures.html Reply

    Had this for dinner tonight. Was really good. My son actually cleaned his plate (though we picked out the mushrooms for him so he'd stop making that gagging sound, LOL)! Reply

    I made this for dinner tonight. It was very good and everyone liked it. However, I thought 1 tbsp of garlic powder seemed like a lot, so I only used about 1/2 tbsp. It stilled seemed like the garlic powder flavor was very prominent. Did you maybe mean 1 tsp? It was still great. Thanks! It will be on my blog tonight :) Reply

    lol nope. I used a whole tbsp. I think I've grown an intolerance to it. Hubby always complains things are bland so I gave it all I had. Reply

    This looks amazing. I think my hubby and little boys might all enjoy this, and I can definitely stand a homemade dinner with only 4 points for a change! This is going on Friday evening's menu, methinks! Thanks for the great looking photos to make my mouth water! I am also wondering what a touch of burgundy wine would be like in this...mmmmmmmm...with couscous.... Now I can't stop thinking about it. :) Reply

    Thank you for the recipe. I made it tonight and it was so easy and SO tasty. I added some fresh spinach just before serving because I just love spinach with mushrooms. Reply
