Grilled Chicken with Mushroom Thyme Cream Sauce

Gluten FreeKid Friendly

So I am fairly new to this blogging thing. It has been exciting and exhausting all at the same time. I think the hardest part is trying to convey who you are, your passions, and your personality in writing; all while engaging the readers. When you are not super confident in your writing skills it is even harder.  Also add to the pile you are an introvert and …. yikes, double scary. But, I love cooking and creating new things in the kitchen. So, I press on.

The one part of the my life where I am confident and know what I’m doing is in the kitchen. It is a stress free zone and brings me joy and peace every time I set out to make something for my family. What area of your life are you in the most confident in? Where do you find the most joy? I also find joy in eating as well.. hehe. (maybe too much)

Last night I was in the mood for a well rounded healthy meal served along side a nice Malbec Red Wine. Luckily, I have a sweetheart of a husband who was willing to go out and satisfy my red wine craving. All I had to do was take care of the “well rounded healthy” meal part of the deal. Done and Done. I ended up making this Grilled Chicken with Mushroom Thyme Cream Sauce. I substituted Greek Yogurt for the typical heavy cream and added some fresh Thyme and Lemon juice. My husband loved it and went really well with the Malbec.

I hope you enjoy!
