Microwave Chicken, Broccoli and Mushrooms

4 skinless chicken thighs, rinsed

1 cup chicken broth plus more for slurry

1 Tablespoon minced garlic

1/3 cup minced onion

1/2 to 1 teaspoon thyme

8 oz fresh mushrooms, quartered

4 cups frozen broccoli, rough chopped

1/2 cup all purpose flour

sea salt, to taste

ground pepper, to taste


Pour 1 cup chicken broth in a microwave safe 2 quart casserole dish..  Add garlic, onion and thyme. Add chicken thighs. Cover with microwave safe plastic wrap.  Micro-cook 4 minutes on high, 1100 watt microwave oven. Carefully remove from microwave, put on a heat resistant surface.  Being careful, remove from oven and gently lift plastic wrap. STEAM will come out! Turn chicken pieces over. Cover and micro-cook another 4 minutes.  Turn pieces over again, cover with plastic wrap. Cook another 4 minutes until done and juices run clear and there is no pink remaining next to the bone.  Carefully, remove from microwave and put chicken thighs in a covered container or plate and cover. In a cup or bowl, mix flour and enough additional chicken broth to make a slurry.  Stir until dissolved. Add another 1 or 2 Tablespoons if you want a thick sauce. Add additional broth if you want more of a soup. Add mushrooms, broccoli, and slurry to casserole dish.  Stir and cook 2 minutes. Stir. Cook another 2 minutes. Stir again and cook another 2 minutes.
