  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 oz cremini mushroom caps, sliced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced into small cubes
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 oz green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and sliced into rings
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups homemade chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme, finely chopped (or 1/2 tsp dried thyme)
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped (or 1/2 dried rosemary)
  • 1 large bay leaf

Mashed Potatoes

  • 5 medium organic red potatoes
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a 3.5-quart Dutch oven over medium heat. Sprinkle the chicken thighs with salt and pepper and add to the hot oil. Cook for about 10 minutes, browning both sides. Remove to a plate and sprinkle with the poultry seasoning.

  2. Turn the heat down to medium low and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, garlic, mushrooms and red bell pepper to the Dutch oven. Cook for 5 minutes stirring continuously.

  3. Add the onion, green beans, carrot, white wine, chicken stock, tomato paste and spices. Raise the heat and bring to a boil.

  4. Add the browned chicken back to the pot, reduce the heat to medium low and cover. Simmer for 1 hour so that the chicken and vegetables are tender.

  5. Remove the chicken and vegetables from the cooking liquid and set aside covered in foil. Bring the remaining liquid to a boil so that it thickens then discard the bay leaves. Adjust the salt and pepper.

  6. Meanwhile, scrub the potatoes and cut into quarters. Place in cold filtered water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer until the potatoes are tender to the fork, about 15-20 minutes. Remove the potatoes from the water and place in a stand mixer with the ghee. Beat until well blended. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  7. Serve the chicken and vegetables over mashed potatoes and cover with the sauce.
