Chicken with Mushrooms

February 06, 2023 | Justine Hoover


Are you a mushroom lover? In my home, we are divided. Three people love mushrooms and two people hate mushrooms. Our February recipe of the month is Chicken with Mushrooms. This recipe is a pan fried chicken topped with mushroom gravy. Since the chicken and gravy are prepared separately, the mushroom haters can breathe a sigh of relief. They can have their chicken plain. And, for us mushroom lovers, we get extra mushroom gravy.

Here a few tips I have picked up while making this recipe:

  • Chicken thighs work well in this recipe, but my family prefers it when I use chicken tenders. I think they like the smaller sized pieces. For me, the chicken tenders seem a little bit easier to prepare and cook.
  • Have a food thermometer on hand. I use an inexpensive digital thermometer I got at a local store. It gives me peace of mind to know the chicken is cooked to a safe temperature (165° F).
  • Try different herbs with the mushroom gravy. I have had good luck with fresh and dried basil and fresh chives.

Whether you are a mushroom lover or a mushroom hater,  you can find the full Chicken with Mushrooms recipe today.
