  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds), cut up
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Return chicken to the skillet; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, slice one cucumber into thin slices; set aside. Peel remaining cucumber; slice in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Cut into 1-in. chunks. Add to skillet and simmer for 20 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.
