Chicken Creamy with Mixed Mushrooms

Packed with flavour, this sauce is everything to make chicken thighs yummier.
It’s been six years now that I have been collecting herbs and spices. I love to see them string my kitchen to be the centerpieces. Although fresh herbs are great, especially if they are seasoned, you can find them in the local farm store and supermarkets.
I decided to cook these chicken thighs with cream and mixed frozen mushrooms since I needed to finish the pouch I opened in my previous recipe for lunch. Yes, I am fond of eating heavy lunches. I mean complete from appetizer-first-second-salad desserts to coffee. I live in Italy, so the last thing to end the meal is coffee and just like that. I go to a lighter like soup or teas for dinner, and I wake up happy to start a new day.
