OK so this combo sounds kinda funky, but OMG ITS SO GOOD!
So first assemble the ingredients! We have 4 chicken thighs, a bunch of cilantro (which I sent my minion to work, extracting leaves), can of tomato sauce, mushrooms (cut into bite size pieces), shallots or yellow onion, garlic and salt/pepper.
Next: Heat up a pan w a wee bit of olive oil and brown the chicken, about 6 minutes on each side. Then remove chicken to a plate. Throw in the mushroom with a bit of salt, let them get all browned up, about 5-7 minutes with a couple stirs. In the mean time, throw the cilantro, shallots (like 2ish shallots) and garlic (I used 5 cloves…but I’m a garlic fiend) into a food processor…and… process? (Whatever, you know what I mean!)
In the mushroom pan add the tomato sauce and the green deliciousness, stir around. Add the chicken back, cover, let cook about 10 minutes. The turn the chicken, recover and cook another 15 -20.
Use this time to feed babies, chase toddlers away from stove, get kids ready for bed.
When time has passed and its ready… get that chicken and sauce on a plate on NOMNOMNOM. Seriously, this is so fraking good. Really blew my socks off the first time I made it…I made again two days later.
