Making dinner in 15 minutes or less is quite a challenge, but there are days when that is all the time I have.  Spring seems to be especially busy, as all the my kids’ activities ramp back up with the return of good weather.  This meal is a quick chicken dinner that goes together fast.

It is tough to make a 15 minute dinner without taking some shortcuts, and in this recipe I use black bean soup to make the sauce thick, rich and tasty without having to simmer it all day.  The flavor from the soup compliments the mushrooms and onions and makes it taste delicious.

Then I paired it with microwavable rice and some sous vide carrots for a balanced meal that was ready fast.  Let me know your tips for getting dinner on the table quickly!
