Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (divided)
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper (or to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 8 ounces sliced brown mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons butter (divided)
  • 1 shallot or small onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add chicken. Season with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika. Mix well and sear chicken all over until browned and cooked through, about 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer cooked chicken to a plate and set it aside and keep warm.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in the same pan and add 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the mushrooms and cook until they begin to brown and soften, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add the remaining butter to the pan. Let melt and sauté shallots and bell peppers until just soft, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  4. Add the chicken back into the pan along with any juices released while resting. Mix through all of the ingredients to evenly coat in the pan juices. Continue cooking until all vegetables are soft and the chicken is cooked through, about 1 to 2 more minutes. Taste test and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Serve warm.

Note: If you want it a little hot, add some chili powder, red pepper flakes or Sriracha for heat. This recipe is also good with a little added sweetness. Try teriyaki sauce or a little raspberry Simply Fruit.
