About this recipe: Fresh thyme adds savoury flavour to an uncomplicated dish, easy make during the week when you don't have much time to cook.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 chicken breast fillets
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 250g mushrooms, chopped
  • 12 thyme sprigs, leaves picked

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over low heat and add the chicken breast fillets. Cook the chicken until golden, then stir in the onion and cook until the onion is soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the mushrooms, and continue to cook, turning the chicken occasionally, for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the thyme leaves. Check to see that the chicken is no longer pink in the centre, and serve.


For added richness, you could add some single cream or creme fraiche just a minute or two before removing from the heat.
