Chicken in Tomatoes and Mushrooms

This was a I’m-just-going-to-find-whatever’s-there-and-figure-something-out-for-dinner dish. It is pretty good, if I don’t say so myself!


6 pieces chicken (whatever your fancy. I had chicken legs)

1 tbsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 Habanero pepper

2 Roma tomatoes, chopped

6 Mushrooms

salt and pepper to taste


Pre-heat oven to about 350 degrees and season chicken. My current favorite salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and crushed thyme. Put in a baking dish and set aside. Saute minced garlic in butter. Add in Habanero and onion and cook until tender. Mix in tomatoes and simmer until soft, adding in salt and pepper to taste. Toss in mushrooms cook until tender. Pour over chicken, cover and bake about 30 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.


Serves about 6

I had this with green beans as a side – it was delicious!
