Chicken with mushrooms

I have always wanted a really nice recipe where I could use chicken and mushrooms so that I can use the healthy elements of both. I used a recipe previously posted to Saumya’s Kitchen, for chicken fatafat, and added a bit of a twist.

This is also a super quick recipe and is tasty and very healthy. Not to forget, it is also very low on oil.



1 lb boneless chicken- its better to use thighs but breast tenders will do too.

Lemon juice from 2 lemons

salt to taste

1 tbsp. oil

Spring onions- about 4-5, chopped (optional)

Mushrooms, cleaned and sliced-about 2 cups

1 tsp shredded ginger

Pepper to taste

Chilli flakes (optional)

Oregano (optional)


Clean and wash the chicken well. Cut into small pieces. Then, use a fork and make holes in the chicken. This is to allow the marinade to go through to the inside of the piece. Add salt and lemon juice. Marinade for about 10 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan. Add spring onion and ginger and sauté for a few minutes. Add the mushroom and the chicken and cook till tender. It should not take long since the pieces are small-about 10 minutes. Add pepper (going heavy on the pepper helps bring a great flavor to the dish), oregano and chilli flakes. Serve hot.
