Salted Peanut Butter Caramel Chocolate Truffles.
And happy Monday!! You all ready for this?
Monday I mean?
I know, probably not, I totally feel your pain. In fact my legs even hurt at the moment…too much standing and totally not enough chillin on the couch this weekend, but when the fams in town you gotta do what you gotta do. Mondays after a major holiday like Thanksgiving are the worst. There is really no sugar-coating it, they are just brutal.
SO. I’m trying to make things a little better with food. It’s kind of what I do. I have found good food fixes all… you know?
This chicken, it’s good food.
SIDE NOTE: you should know that my brain is so totally out of it that since writing that last sentence I have pretty much checked every form of social media, skimmed through emails and done a set of push ups.
Can you say procrastination? I think so.
With December basically here (hello, tomorrow is December 1!!) I know that means one thing: we are all busy. Which means it’s time for some easy, but cozy dinners (it’s COLD out there).
Ahh wait, have you all started the Christmas music yet?!? Obviously I have been listening to it since Thanksgiving morning (ok, I started before that), it’s kind of my everything at the moment. Well, Christmas music and my gingerbread candle. YES!
But this 45-Minute Truffled Mushroom Chicken…it’s also my everything. It’s creamy, hinted with truffle flavors and served atop a bed of creamy polenta… AND paired with a side of roasted broccolini + delicata squash. I mean, come on.
This meal, it just doesn’t get any better.
And it’s all ready in under 45-minutes? Almost too good to be true… but then it is true! hehe 🙂
I kind of feel like this is the dinner we all need this week. The weather is really starting to turn cold, the fuzzy socks and slippers are making their return, and well, comfort food is in full force.
Or at least that’s what I am feeling.
This is one of those meals though that’s crazy cozy, but yet not crazy unhealthy either. It’s actually full of lean protein, whole grains and veggies too. I’d say that’s pretty dang healthy, don’t you think?
Meaning, you should probably head to the store after work and make this tonight.
Or maybe tomorrow, if you’re still making your way through the Thanksgiving leftovers (what did you guys make with all the leftovers by the way?!).
Either way, just make sure to give this recipe a try. It’s honestly one of my favorites and my family’s too!! Dad loved all the mushroom and well, you know my mom loved the polenta…and the creamy chicken. My brothers? They loved it all of course…
Yeah, right. They wouldn’t even touch this. LAME.
OKAY and with that, I am out.
My brain is in that “ahh, I can’t think properly” mode and I don’t want to say anything cheesy. Which I probably already did, but whatever, I know you guys get it.
BUT, if there’s one thing I want you guys to actually get of this post it’s that you must make this recipe. It’s SO good. Trust me.
SO GOOD. <–truth.

P.S. polenta + mushrooms + a little (lighter) truffle cream sauce = life. Just sayin.
Made this with my wife on Valentine’s Day. It took considerably longer than 45 minutes but was well worth it. I had the lead and I normally grill or fix crock pot meals or do something really easy so this was a stretch. Several things happening at once but everything turned out great! Delicious recipe.
Thank you so much David!
I will try this tonight as I have too many mushrooms left! Will replace the polenta with brown rice, that should work too 🙂
Should work just fine! Hope you loved it Nadia, thank you!
I adore truffles. I made my own black truffle oil and shaved extra black truffles in and it was gorgeous! I want to try ever recipe on your website. Thanks for sharing all your knowledge and experience.
So I made this tonight and again got rave reviews!! I adore truffles. I made my own black truffle oil and shaved extra black truffles in and it was gorgeous! I want to try ever recipe on your website.
YAY!! Thats amazing!! I’m so happy you and everyone liked it (:
The truffle oil sounds SO good!!
Thank you so much!! I hope you get to try them all ☺️
Hey Tieghan! Is there anything you recommend replacing the white wine with, that’s not alcoholic? I still want really great flavour, so I’m a little stumped :/
Thanks for the awesome recipe!
HI! I would use chicken broth. That will be great!! Hope you love this!
I am in Northern Itay at the moment where in the winter amazing polenta dishes are everywhere! Now I have a polenta dish to look forward to when I get back to New York ! I can’t wait to make this! I love all of your recipes !
Perfect!! happy New Years!
Just got my truffle oil! Making this tomorrow! 🙂
Made this tonight, was phenomenal. The flavor blends were incredible. My husband who is vegetarian got a vegi mushroom sauce instead but it did not create any extra work, just one extra pan. Bravo.
SO happy this was a hit. Thank you!
Made this last night and I Can’t wait to make it again. I had to go to two different stores for the ingredients and it was worth the trip.
Thanks for sharing! !!
So happy you loved this! Thanks!!
Making this tonight! Looks so good, I hope it turns out as well as yours looks:) Thanks for the recipe!
I love polenta and truffle oil is the best. This is my dream comfort meal! 🙂
I made this tonight! Add an extra cup or 2 of water to make really creamy polenta. I read a trick that polenta should be a 5 to 1 ratio. Takes a little longer but worth it! I skipped the truffle oil too. But really yummy!!!!
That looks AMAZING! The only thing is I’ve never ever been able to find truffle oil. Perhaps I could try online?
Yup! I buy mine on amazon. Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/TruffleHunter-White-Truffle-Oil-3-4/dp/B007D7OUE0/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1449029313&sr=8-3&keywords=white+truffle+oil
This recipe looks so creepy, comforting, tasty… A perfect late fall recipe I love it 🙂
Mmm I love seeing all those winter colors and vegetables! This really looks absolutely delicious, I am crazy about those creamy truffled mushrooms! Can’t wait to sit back watch the snow fall outside and eat this!
Thank you so much, Linda! Hope you had a great THanksgiving!
