This recipe is ready in about 25 minutes, which I love, no matter what night of the week it is.
(We always talk about busy weeknights, but my weekends aren’t a time I particularly want to slave away in the kitchen on an involved meal either. Anyone else?)
And I love that this has no heavy cream, which I never seem to have.
In fact, it’s only got 7 main ingredients!
That luxuriously creamy sauce that coats the chicken and mushrooms is just cream cheese and some chicken broth. It melts down with all the flavors from the sautéed onions and mushrooms and the seared bits from the chicken and makes such a delicious sauce.
And because of that sauce, you’re definitely going to want to serve this over some fluffy steamed rice.
If you know me, you know I go for the whole grains. But it can take 30-35 minutes to make brown rice. Not exactly ideal if everything else can be ready well before that.
So today I wanted to share with you a new grocery store find: VeeTee rice. It cooks in the microwave, in its own container, in just 2 minutes. Yup, 2 minutes. It gets perfectly fluffy and hot and ready to serve.
