Delicious. This is a typical Brazilian comfort dish. We would eat this at least once a month at my house. Kids love it. Serve with white rice and potato stix.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken in the skillet; cook until the chicken is golden brown and no longer pink in the center, 7 to 10 minutes per side. Stir the mushroom mixture in with the chicken and season with salt and pepper. Add tomatoes; cook and stir until tomato juice begins to simmer, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in table cream; simmer until flavors are combined, 1 to 3 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Canned mushrooms can be substituted for fresh mushrooms.

Table cream can usually found by the evaporated milk at the supermarket. If you can't find it you can also use heavy cream but beat it until you get a harder consistency.

You can flambe the chicken with cognac which gives it a nice taste, I never have cognac so I don't.

Shredding the chicken after cooking it can be substituted for slicing it.

I liked this as a nice creamy tomato chicken dish. I used bone in chicken thighs and a sprinkle of paprika...just a personal preference. Simmered longer to reduce the tomato sauce before adding the cream. Tasted like a creamy chicken cacciatore. Will probably make again. Read More
