Don’t you get tired of all these food bloggers constantly saying their latest recipe is their favorite ever and/or the best ever? <— ahem, I hope you don’t because…I’m actually talking about myself here haha.

Admittedly, I do it all the time and I just made up a word for it: it’s called over-enthusiasm. I’m not even going to try and defend myself. I plead guilty and hope the food blog police won’t come and get me.

I didn’t even dare looking at the chicken recipes archives to read the posts I wrote because I remember at least two times when I said the recipe was my new favorite. And I’m pretty sure there’s a lot more.

The worst thing of all?  I mean it every.single.time and this recipe for chicken with mushrooms is no exception!

I just adored this easy one-skillet recipe and it was quite frankly the best chicken with mushrooms I can remember. So I just called it that.

Does this mean you have to give this chicken with mushrooms recipe a try ASAP? Sure does!

If you’re not a mushroom people (who are you?!) this will definitely not be your favorite chicken recipe ever. But if you’re one of the good people (just kidding!)…please make this for dinner, and let me know if I’m exaggerating!

But even if I don’t, let me know anyway, mmmkay?

  1. Marie, it’s okay to have new favorite recipes. I think everyone does that, not just food bloggers. And you are by far not the worst that way of all the food blogs I read. There is one that comes to mind where the person is more that ‘over-enthusiastic’. If that’s possible… 🙂
