  3. Add chopped red bell pepper, onion, carrot to the skillet, season with salt, pepper, and thyme, and cook for about 5 minutes over medium to medium-high heat, or until vegetables are tender.
  4. Mix mustard, broth, coconut cream, and arrowroot starch in a small mixing bowl and add to the skillet.
  5. Add potatoes, mushrooms, and minced garlic and cook a little bit more. Season everything again.
  6. Finally, add the sweet peas at the end. Return the cooked chicken tenderloins to the skillet. Season if necessary. Serve warm.
