here's a recipe that works especially well for those of you who prepare meals a week at a time.  match this chicken with a few different vegetables (in this case, sautéed kale) and bam, you have a few different meals just like that.

this is a classic roasted chicken that is inspired by cold autumn weather that makes cream of mushroom soup enticing.  the sauce here is made from blending the liquid from cooking the chicken and chicken infused mushrooms. 

the sautéed kale here is a made with shallots and garlic for a classic, yet slightly sweet flavor.
