How to make Chicken and Mushroom Skillet

The favors for the chicken and mushroom skillet build off one another. It starts with browning the chicken. I did this in a cast-iron skillet and it works perfectly every time. All the bits and pieces get kept in the pan. Next sautè mushrooms and onions then add in your garlic. Once the garlic is fragrant and mushrooms are browned and onions are caramelized then its time to add in the wine. Once you add in the white wine the bottom of the pan will deglaze with all those flavorful bits and pieces. Finish off the dish by adding fresh thyme, chicken broth, and cream, dairy or non-dairy will work.

I used a dairy-free creamer, nut pods, however, regular cream works great in this recipe too.
