Simple Garlic Herb Chicken with Olives and Mushrooms

This Garlic Herb Seasoning has become my ‘go to’ secret ingredient! Yum!
I’ve been experimenting with different amounts of the seasoning and discovered that its also great on shrimp!  So I thought, why not put a lot of the seasoning on the chicken and see how it goes.  It turned out to be really amazing and simple as well!!

9 Pieces of Legs and Thighs (I used half skinless and the other half with skin)
1/8 cup of Garlic Herb Seasoning
Salt & Pepper
1/2 Medium Onion, thinly sliced
8 oz of Mushrooms, sliced
Black Pitted Olives, 1/2 a can, roughly chopped
3 tablespoons of Olive Oil
Pan of choice – large 2 inch deep pan.
Serves: 5

First, sauté the onion in the oil on medium heat until slightly transparent. Move the onions to the side of the pan.  Meanwhile, season the chicken with salt and pepper.  Grab 1/8 of a cup (half of 1/4 cup) of the Garlic herb seasoning and evenly coat  the chicken. Like this!
Cook the chicken all the way through until it gets golden brown on both sides. The chicken should be firm when you press it.  (You can also cut it a little at the middle to see if it’s cooked.)
Stack the cooked chicken on the side of the pan (opposite side of the onions).  Place the mushrooms in the pan and stir it together with the onions until it gets slightly darker.  Finally, add the roughly cut olives at the end.  Plate with a side of Grilled Texas Toast!!  The garlic herb seasoning does wonders to the chicken!! It really gives it a different depth of flavor.  1/8 cup of the seasoning might seem too much, however, it gives it flavor much like if you were to marinate the chicken for hours.
