You won’t need any divine intervention to make this delicious meal.

Are you looking to switch things up a bit with the Chicken Porter Rockwell recipe? Here are some substitution and variation ideas that I think you’ll love!

First, let’s talk about the chicken. While boneless skinless chicken breast halves are the star of this recipe, feel free to use airline chicken breasts or even bone-in chicken pieces for a different texture and flavor.

If mushrooms aren’t your thing, try swapping them out for your favorite vegetable. Bell peppers or zucchini would be tasty options.

For the spices, if you don’t have parsley on hand, fresh cilantro would be a great alternative. And if garlic is too strong for your taste, try using minced shallots for a milder flavor.

Finally, I have to mention the Porter Rockwell chili. If you’re not a fan of beef, you can easily substitute it with ground turkey or even vegetarian crumbles. And if you want to spice things up, add a little bit of cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper flakes.

With these substitutions and variations in mind, you’re sure to find a version of the Chicken Porter Rockwell recipe that’s perfect for your taste buds!
