Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts, cut into tenders sized pieces
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 shallot, diced

  • 6 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme

  • a few sprigs Italian flat leaf parsley, rough chopped

Instructions

  1. Sprinkle the chicken tenders with a little sea salt and black pepper on both sides.

  7. Top with fresh parsley before serving.
