الوصفة بالعربي

This guiltless creamy chicken is so good, it can become an addiction!


  • 4 large chicken breast fillet - صدور فيليه الدجاج
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (optional) - بودرة ثوم
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil - زيت زيتون
  • 200 gram mushrooms - عش الغراب
  • 2 garlic cloves (crushed) - فصوص ثوم
  • 1 cup water (240 ml) - ماء
  • 3 cup yoghurt (the individual cup from supermarket) - زبادي
  • 3 teaspoon corn flour - نشا
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard (or more) - مسطردة ديجون
  • 1 handful sun-dried tomatoes (finely chopped) - طماطم مجففة
  • 1 tablespoon parsley (finely chopped for garnish) - بقدونس
  • 1 sprig rosemary - روزماري/ إكليل الجبل
  • salt and pepper (to taste) - ملح و فلفل

Step by step

  1. Cut the chicken into cubes, and marinate with salt, pepper and garlic powder. (You can ask the supermarket butcher to cube it for you when you buy it.) Leave the chicken to marinate in the fridge (preferably for one hour).
  2. Dissolve the corn flour in a little water (around 1/8 cup or less) to avoid any lumps, then mix it with the yoghurt and Dijon mustard in a bowl and set aside (leave at room temperature).
  3. Use a damp clean towel or wet kitchen paper to wipe your fresh mushrooms. (Mushrooms are never washed because they absorb the water.) You may cut them or just leave them whole!
  4. Next, heat olive oil in a large skillet and fry the chicken for a few minutes. Add the mushrooms and 2 crushed garlic cloves and stir constantly until the chicken is golden brown.
  5. Add 1 cup of water to the chicken- mushrooms skillet, while scraping the skillet with a wooden spoon to release all the browned bits. Let it simmer for 3 minutes.
  6. Spoon some of the simmering water to the yoghurt bowl to gradually warm the yoghurt, and mix.
  7. Stir in the warm yoghurt mix into the skillet and lower the heat.
  8. Add the chopped sundried tomatoes, the rosemary, and taste to adjust the seasoning. You may add extra Dijon for a stronger flavour, salt and pepper.
  9. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and serve!

    I loved this recipe especially with the sun dried tomatoes – makes it so special! For an even healthier take – I didn’t use corn starch nor extra water when I tried mine. I added some of the chicken released water to prevent the yoghurt curdle – it didn’t work that well but it still ended up creamy and totally tasty
