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.
I followed the recipe for the veggies and last minute tossed them with a little White Truffle Oil and a sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan cheese before serving. They were delicious. Looking forward to trying the whole recipe!
Love to hear this Kym!! I appreciate you making this dish and sharing your comment! Happy Sunday! xT
I believe I have already commented on how wonderful this recipe is but I wanted to share that this evening I made it and I was out of white wine( no idea why). I used some tawny port and oh god it’s good! I have only ever used a tawny port for a reduction sauce I make for dipping my Christmas prime rib in but I am so glad I added it to this recipe. I hope someone out there trys it. It’s great♡
I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, I truly appreciate you giving it a try!!? xTieghan
An oldie but goodie! Or…great-ie! I happened across this in a search on HBH for chicken recipes, and had to do it!
I didn’t have the squash, but used a large sweet potato cut into half inch thick rounds. Everything else was as the recipe stated. It was perfect! One of the tastiest recipes I’ve tried in a while!
So amazing! Thank you for trying this Aline! xTieghan
