Chicken with Zucchini and Wild Rice

This is a really nice dish; not a quick one but easy enough to prepare.

The chicken stays soft, and overall the taste is light but it is an appetizing choice.

  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into medium size chunks

Add the crushed garlic, the mustard seeds and the wine and keep cooking for another 6 to 8 minutes adding more water if necessary.



Add the chicken (after you have wash it, pad it dry and covered with flour; (cover generously as the extra flour will create a creamy sauce when you add the vegetable stock).

Add the zucchini and the mushrooms together with the vegetable stock, cover with a lid and cook over medium heat for another 15-20 minutes depending on the size of the chicken chunks.
