1 cup chicken broth plus more for slurry
1 Tablespoon minced garlic

1/2 to 1 teaspoon thyme
8 oz fresh mushrooms, quartered
4 cups frozen broccoli, rough chopped
1/2 cup all purpose flour
sea salt, to taste
ground pepper, to taste

Directions

Pour 1 cup chicken broth in a microwave safe 2 quart casserole dish..  Add garlic, onion and thyme.  Add chicken thighs.  Cover with microwave safe plastic wrap.  Micro-cook 4 minutes on high, 1100 watt microwave oven.  Carefully remove from microwave, put on a heat resistant surface.  Being careful, remove from oven and gently lift plastic wrap.   STEAM will come out!  Turn chicken pieces over.  Cover and micro-cook another 4 minutes.  Turn pieces over again,  cover with plastic wrap.  Cook another 4 minutes until done and juices run clear and  there is no pink remaining next to the bone.  Carefully, remove from microwave and put chicken thighs in a covered container or plate and cover.  In a cup or bowl, mix flour and enough additional chicken broth to make a slurry.  Stir until dissolved.   Add another 1 or 2 Tablespoons if you want a thick sauce.  Add additional broth if you want more of a soup.  Add mushrooms, broccoli, and slurry to casserole dish.  Stir and cook 2 minutes.  Stir.  Cook another 2 minutes.  Stir again and cook another 2 minutes.   Season with salt and pepper.
