Christmas break is almost over. What have we been doing? Eating. Eating. Eating. I made this the other night for dinner and it was yummy! Try this chicken and mushrooms recipe with red peppers. I actually added the red peppers last minute and I am glad I did. Chicken can get really boring especially if you eat it a couple times a week. I am always looking for new ways to spice up boring chicken. I found a recipe over at What’s Gabby Cooking and changed it up a bit. Mushrooms and peppers usually scare the kids but they loved this dish.

My grandparents were upset there was only one piece left for their lunch the next day. Ha. They love when I cook and give them the left overs.
There are so many variations of chicken and mushrooms. Chicken is tricky to cook in my opinion. Not over cooking it and tenderizing it properly (prep work) are the two main components to a delicious mouth watering chicken dinner. Don’t forget to tenderize the chicken before cooking ;).
