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.
