One Skillet Dinner

Though not very colorful (hence the piece of parsley)- this dish had good flavor from the fresh parmesan cheese.  I think next time I might try adding either peas or grilled asparagus in it.  But try for yourself and see if you like!

Start by adding olive oil to the skillet

Add onions, garlic, mushrooms and thyme

Saute and add chicken

The next 3 ingredients finish off the dish

Along with fresh parmesan cheese and parsley... John gave the dinner 3 stars!

John set the table with these... we are out of regular napkins.... guess how old we are :-)
Though I won't say how looooong we have had the napkins!!
