For Chicken

  • 1 1/2 lbs chicken thighs boneless and skinless
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste

  • 1 tbsp parsley chopped


  • In a small bowl whisk together the onion powder, mustard powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  • Pat dry the chicken thighs with paper towels then season with the dry rub generously on all sides.
  • Heat the 2 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat in a skillet then add the chicken thighs and sear on both sides until no longer pink, about 8 min per side. Might have to do in batches. Transfer the chiken thighs to a plate.
  • In the same skillet add the 2 tbsp of butter and melt. Add the sliced mushrooms, and saute for about 3 to 5 minutes until the mushrooms soften and start to brown. Add the garlic, salt, pepper and stir everything together. Cook for another 30 seconds until aromatic.

  1. Leftovers should be kept in an airtight container and refrigerated for about 3-4 days. To reheat, you can pop it in the microwave or oven until it is heated through. Remember, cooked chicken should only be reheated once!
  2. You can also freeze your leftover chicken for 2–6 months.
