It takes no time to make it and it is one of our favorite dishes to make now. I make it at least once a week because of how quickly it comes together (yes, really, 30 minutes!) which is super helpful for me during weeknights after work.


  • In case you’re using frozen mushroom, make sure you thaw the mushroom perfectly and drain the extra water.
  • To check if the chicken is cooked, check if any portion is pink. Pink in the chicken denotes rawness.
  • Parsley is a substitute to Italian seasoning.


Make sure no consumer is allergic to ingredients like broccoli or corn-starch.
