Clean Smothered Chicken

Are you tired of eating chicken the same old way and looking for a recipe?!  Look no further, I got you covered!!!

Total time approx 45 minutes


  • 7 pieces of chicken tenderloins
  • 1 medium onion
  • 4 cups baby Bella mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Minced garlic
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Oregano
  • Garlic powder
  • Dijon mustard


  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 2 teaspoons almond butter
  • Cinnamon
  • 10 Pecans


If you are opting to have the sweet potatoes (they are AMAZING so I would opt in🙌🙌😉) with your meal, preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Clean the sweet potatoes, poke holes in both of them and place on the oven rack (be sure to put a price of foil on the rack below to catch the drippings – I forgot to do that and made a big mess😏)

While that was baking we decided to get our workout out of the way and finish the rest of dinner after that.  The excercise happened to be lower fix, which is approx 30 minutes – perfect for the sweet potatoes to bake.

Once we were done exercising, drizzle some EVOO on the bottom of a pan, place the chicken in and sprinkle each of the seasonings,


Once you turn them do the same to the other side, cook until no longer pink.


In a different pan, the sliced onions and mushrooms can be sautéed and topped with seasonings as well.




Everything is just about done and time to assemble!

Brush some Dijon mustard over the chicken.  (It’s a freebie so use as much as you wish😉)


Top with onions, mushrooms and cheese.


Once the cheese is melted,


The sweet potatoes can be removed from the oven, cut in half.  Place 1 tsp of almond butter,


cinnamon (as much as you like gotta love the freebies) and 5 crumbled pecans on top of the potato and dinner is served.  I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I did, this will definitely be added to the dinner mix!
