These budget-friendly chicken thighs make a tasty topping for hot cooked rice, noodles, or pasta. The dish calls for chicken thighs, but feel free to use boneless chicken breasts for a lighter meal.
Garlic and parsley are the simple seasonings in the mushroom sauce. Don't let the richness of the sauce deceive you. Chicken stock, dry white wine, and cream or half-and-half are the sauce components, making it lighter than it tastes.
