Why I Love One Pan Recipes
Complicated recipes have their place. Successfully completing all the steps is a special kind of victory. It’s kind of like the adult version of finishing a detailed Lego build.
A lot of concentration goes into making your shiny object.
And the complicated recipe generally has good outcomes. At least you convince yourself it tastes good. You probably wouldn’t admit defeat at that point.
But then the meal is over, and you have to deal with the wreckage. Bowls, pots, pans, and utensils are everywhere. Did you really need the food processor? Was the melon baller really necessary?
It’s time to settle into a long night of pot scrubbing, counter cleaning, and dishwasher loading.
Or, you could simplify everything with a one pan recipe.
Good tasting food doesn’t require you to make a disaster area out of your kitchen. You just need to find a suitable dish.
Creating a One Pan AIP Recipe
This recipe had two requirements. First, it had to be prepared in one pan, and second, it had to be safe for autoimmune protocol.
OK, well technically it had three requirements. I want it to taste good too!
In order for chicken to work for this recipe, I decided to slice it before cooking. It’s obviously important to cook chicken thoroughly for food safety, and it is quicker to cook chicken through if it has already been cut.
Mushrooms are safe for AIP, and they are a great companion to chicken. They soak up the rich chicken flavor and make the meal more substantial.
Plain chicken and mushrooms can be a bit boring, however, and many spices are off-limits on AIP. I decided to try a creamy approach, and I loved the results.
Coconut cream is safe for AIP and a great option for savory dishes. You can get canned coconut cream, or use the hardened bit from a refrigerated can of coconut milk.
To round out the dish, serve with cauliflower rice.

A simple, three-ingredient supper that can be whipped up in no time at all.
- 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) of olive oil
- 2 large chicken breasts (400 g), sliced
- 18 white button mushrooms (180g), sliced
- 3/4 cup (180 ml) of warm chicken broth
- 4 Tablespoons (60 ml) of coconut cream, from the top of a refrigerated can of coconut milk
- Salt, to taste
- 2 portions cooked cauliflower “rice,” to serve
- Chopped fresh parsley, to garnish
- Heat the olive oil in a large pan. Add the sliced chicken to the pan and cook until browned, then add the mushrooms, cooking until golden brown and stirring regularly.
- Add the warm chicken broth to the pan and reduce the heat to medium, cooking until the broth has almost completely evaporated and the chicken is cooked through.
- Add the coconut cream to the pan and stir well to combine. Remove the pan from the heat once the coconut cream has thickened and coated the chicken and mushrooms. Season with salt, to taste.
- Serve the creamy chicken and mushrooms immediately over cooked cauliflower “rice” and garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
