When the weather starts getting cold, I typically enjoy making hearty meals that will warm me up but easy to throw together. I browsed through here (lots of great chicken recipes) and decided to try this easy Chicken Fricassee with Mushroom and Corn Recipe .
It’s quite an easy recipe and it only took me 15 mins to prep all the ingredients. I adapted a few things for my taste. I used chicken breast instead of thighs and added vinegar to replace white wine. Oh! I also forgot the dijon mustard so had to settle with hot & sweet mustard.
Once I had all the ingredients prepared I quickly browned the mushrooms, red peppers onions and garlic together for a few minutes. Then set it aside.
In the same pan brown the chicken and add salt and pepper. Then sprinkle with some flour and stir. Deglaze with white wine (I used vinegar). When all the chicken looks well coated, add in the broth and mustard. At the end return the mushroom, red peppers and add in corn. Let it all simmer for 15 mins.
I served it with some brown rice which made it a very filling meal. This dish has the right amount of flavour – fresh and a bit of sweetness from the corn and red peppers. It also made for great leftovers the next day!
What you need:
8 oz (227 g) white button mushrooms, halved
1 onion, thinly sliced

1) First brown the mushrooms, and onion with oil. Then add in the bell pepper, garlic and cook for couple minutes. Then set aside.
2) In the same pan, brown the chicken with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with some flour and stir. Then deglaze with the wine (I used vinegar). Then add in the broth and mustard. Once everything is mixed add all the mushroom and veggies back into the pot. Let it simmer for 30 mins and enjoy!
