This dish is another example where while chicken is used, it is is accompanied by an abundance of veggies.  This dish contains classic French flavor agents-celery, thyme, mushroom, onion, cream.  If you have fresh thyme on hand, double the amount.  This would make a healthy recipe for dinner alongside some whole grains-I put it atop some black rice.


  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1.5 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 8 ounces sliced button mushrooms
  • 1.5 pounds organic chicken breast, cubed
  • 1/2 lemon, juice
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch, dissolved in 2 teaspoons cold water


  1. Heat oil and butter.  Add onion and celery.  Add some salt.  Cook until softened and lightly brown.
  2. Add garlic, salt, pepper, and thyme.  Cook for 30 seconds.  Add mushrooms and cook until mushrooms lightly soften.  Add chicken and cook covered until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Take off lid and add lemon juice, heavy cream, and corn starch.  Bring to a light simmer and turn off heat when lightly thickened.  Serve atop black rice (or any whole grain).  Enjoy!
