Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast cut into one-inch chunks
  • sea salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 cloves garlic minced or chopped
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 cup matchstick carrots
  • 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms sliced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream at room temperature
  • 1 cup frozen peas

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium-high flame. Season chicken breast with sea salt and black pepper. Add to pot and cook until golden brown and cooked through. (This is a good time to chop your veggies.) Remove from pot.

  2. Reduce heat to medium and add butter to pot to melt. Add thyme, garlic, onion, carrots, mushrooms, and a little more sea salt and black pepper; stirring and cooking until tender (about six minutes). Garlic should be fragrant and onions should start to turn translucent.

  3. Add chicken back to pot then stir in chicken broth, frozen peas, and heavy cream. Increase heat to medium-high.

  4. Cook until heated through and bubbly (about 15 minutes). Remove from flame and (carefully) serve hot.
