Creamy Garlic Mushroom Chicken – Budget Bytes


pan sauce is so easy to make and squeezes each final drop of taste out of your meat. This week I made a creamy garlic pan sauce for some rooster thighs that I had stashed within the freezer, and added mushrooms to bulk out the meal a bit. You can serve this Creamy Garlic Mushroom Chicken over pasta or rice, or should you’re making an attempt to curb the carbs, make an enormous ol’ lovely salad to go with these creamy flavors. Keep dinner easy, preserve dinner scrumptious! 

Goes nice with: Focaccia Rolls, Homemade Garlic Bread, Summer Vegetable Tian, Oven Roasted (frozen) Broccoli
