One Pot Chicken, Mushroom & Broccoli

الوصفه بالعربي

Such a simple recipe cooked all at once in one pot! No mess and it turns out delicious! It’s suitable for a simple lunch or an extravagant gathering. You can replace the broccoli with cut asparagus to make it more elegant.

This recipe also works as a pasta sauce (add half cup cream) or sandwich filling (replace cream with cheese and salad in the sandwich).


  • 500 gram chicken breast (fillets - cut lengthwise into finger size) - صدور دجاج
  • 1 large red onion (quartered and thinly sliced) - بصلة حمراء
  • 2 garlic clove (minced) - فص ثوم
  • 250 gram mushrooms (thinly sliced) - عش الغراب
  • 250 gram broccoli (cut into florets) - بروكلى
  • 1 tablespoon oregano (preferably fresh) - أوريجانو/ زعتر
  • 1/2 cup cooking cream - كريم الطهي

Step by step

  1. On medium heat, put olive oil In a large pan, then add the onion followed by garlic.
  2. As the onion starts changing colour add the broccoli florets and the cut chicken. Stir them to make sure they get covered by the fat and fry a bit in the pan.
  3. Once the chicken exterior is cooked, add the mushrooms followed by the cream. Cover the pan and lower the heat to let all it all cook for another 10 minutes until broccoli is tender and chicken is cooked through.
  4. Stir in the oregano at the end of the cooking process just before taking the pot off the heat.

    What can I use instead of the cooking cream if I want it less calories/ less fat. Thanks

    I’m assuming you won’t want to use diluted flour or cornflour either – to keep it light and carb-free.
    I would put a ladle of chicken stock to keep the chicken moist while cooking. If you don’t have, just add half cup boiling water and some extra salt and pepper 🙂 Let me know how it turns out!

    Tasty, easy to follow and quick recipe.. didn’t add the brocoli because I didn’t have any, yet it still turned out great! I wasn’t sure the chicken will be moist in the pan versus inside the oven, yet it turned out extremely tender .. When I told my kids this recipe is missing the broccoli, they replied that it was great that way and that the broccoli would have made it worse
