Step 2

Mashed potatoes

Peel the potatoes, wash each and then slice them in which form you like - I choose the round one because I find it easier to mash afterwards.

Step 3

Get the mushrooms ready

I chopped the onions and added them into the wok to get the texture I wanted before cooking the mushroom side dish.

Once the onions were cooking in the wok, I washed and peeled the mushrooms. Then, sliced them juliene and added them into the wok along with the onions. Season with salt, pepper and paprika.

Make sure you season correctly and taste, taste, taste. I also added tomato sauce and vegetable stock. The flavour...beyond tasty. So if you have stock make sure not to miss it. If not, add you can add tomato sauce and water, that should work as well. Taste and if necessary, add salt, pepper.

If not, here is how I did: once the potatoes have been boiled, I got rid of the water and started mashing with the masher. I also added 1 table spoon of butter and 1 ladle of milk so that the texture of the mashed potatoes is creamy and without any pieces of unmashed potato. Add salt and taste.

From time to time, check the chicken in the oven. Make sure it doesn't get dry so taste! It should look like this:
