A simple pan sauce of chopped mushrooms, onions and fresh thyme that enlivens the basic chicken breasts (I left out the dry white wine as I didn't think it was suitable for my LO yet). Mushrooms are often underappreciated in vegetable recipes. It’s true that they don’t share the bright color of tomatoes or carrots, but they taste a lot better than they look. Since chicken breast is quite a lean meat on its own, the mushrooms in the sauce are perfect for making this recipe hearty and satisfying. 

An easy chicken dish topped with a savory mushroom sauce for a tasty meal.

You can use whatever species of mushrooms you like best. I used white button mushrooms.

  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme, leaves stripped from the stem 
  • Some baby asparagus & corn kernels, blanched
  • Ground black pepper & mixed Italian herbs, for seasoning
  • Olive oil, for pan-frying


  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan. Add chicken to pan and season with mixed herbs and ground pepper. Pan-fry til browned on both sides, or cooked thoroughly. Set aside.
