frequently asked questions

Can we cook mushrooms and chicken together?

Yes. Sauteed Mushroom goes really well with chicken. We prefer that you cook the chicken first and set it aside before you cook the mushrooms and bring the chicken back into the skillet. Chicken and mushrooms make for a perfect one-pan meal.

Can I freeze chicken and mushroom sauce?

Creamy sauces don’t freeze well because the cream tends to separate into curdles when thawed and reheated.

What to add to chicken to make it tasty?

Don’t be scared to season your chicken. You can use all sorts of seasonings with chicken to make them tasty and different every time they are being prepared. You can also cook your chicken breasts in creamy sauces or stir-fry them with veggies to add more flavor to your chicken recipe.

How do I make my chicken tender?

Our number one rule is to not cook it too fast or overcook the chicken. Try flattening the chicken breast if it’s too thick. Cook the chicken breast over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on one side undisturbed, then lower the heat and flip it to the other side and let it simmer slowly.
