Another easy chicken recipe perfect for a weeknight dinner! This time, I cooked chicken with mushrooms in a tangy, fresh tomato based sauce and added dried thyme for that additional aroma. You can serve this with rice, mashed potatoes or crusty bread. It’s one dish with multiple options. Simple and clean flavours, easy and cheap to make. Enjoy!
