"This chicken and mushrooms recipe video is an experiment in extreme self-control; I wanted to challenge myself to make a chicken and mushrooms recipe using only chicken and mushrooms."

chicken breast halves, boneless, skin-on
salt and ground black pepper to taste
fresh mushrooms, sliced 1/4 inch thick
A great simple recipe. I made it with boneless skinless chicken breasts and added a chopped onion for a bit more flavor, but I'm sure it would be just as good as directed. Thanks!
Mushrooms were flavorful, and if I took a bit of mushroom and chicken together it was alright. But I made it according the recipe and the chicken was dry and flavorless. Not a fan
Succulent and chicken breast are seldom found in the same sentence, but you can find them together here in this delightfully simple recipe, composed of a few common ingredients. Chef John really shows off the flavor of chicken and mushrooms. Yes, you may add more things, like wine, or aromatics, but the more additions, the more complications and subbing, and then the tweaking begins! I chose not to view the video beforehand, just to check out the instructions and the cooking times. I went on the low side of the recommended times, and the chicken came out perfectly, with rich, delicious mushrooms. We really enjoyed our Sunday chicken today!
I followed this recipe to the T, and it came out delicious! It was simple, quick, and had only a few main ingredients so I didn't have to go to the store to get anything off hand. It also still tasted good when I reheated it for lunch. I think next time I may add in some onions, just for some more flavor, but it was delicious!
Terrific. Quick. Simple. Delicious. No special ingredients.
What more could a busy person ask for!
No excuse for not oooking. The video is great.
Got this recipe from a top NY chef with one twist: rub skin side with your favorite pork/chicken rub ( grab one from the store-Stonewall great) then sprinkle on other side when chick is skin down. Fab favor and sauce. PS olive oil not needed as skin produces lots of rendered fat.-Drain excess when you turn chick in pan.
Incredible. Try it as is for the easiest weeknight meal you'll ever make or add your own seasonings. You can't miss with this one.
But if you have on hand scallions and garlic, don't hesitate to add them just before the chicken. A little white wine is good to add just before transferring to the oven
