Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and dust with flour. Shake off any excess.
  2. Heat the half butter in a large skillet on medium-high until it stops bubbling.
  3. Add the chicken and cook for about 1 minute on each side until light golden.
  4. Transfer the chicken to a plate and keep warm.
  5. Without cleaning the pan (unless you prefer to do so, but not cleaning will add extra flavor to sauce) add the remaining butter, and heat on medium-high until it stops bubbling.
  6. Add the mushrooms, onion, and garlic. Sauté until the water released from the mushrooms evaporates.
  7. Remove pan from fire.
  8. Add half of the sherry, return to fire and boil for 1 minute.
  9. Add the gravy, and bring to a simmer.
  10. Return the chicken to the skillet along with the remaining sherry and the chives.
  11. Cook for about 3 minutes to heat through and serve.

This. Was. Awesome! And so easy to make!! I did substitute chicken stock for the sherry, but other than that I followed the recipe to a "T". I can't wait to make this again! Thank you for posting!

This made a very elegant lunch for the four of us. We thought the beef gravy flavor detracted a bit, but the dish as a whole is still pretty tasty! Easy to do and presents itself very well. Made for PRMR, March 09.

Delicious, quick and very easy to prepare, and wonderfully clear instructions. The only thing that left me puzzled was the reference to 45 minutes cooking time at the top of the recipe. I halved the reipe for two of us, though I doubled the garlic (personal taste preference), and we enjoyed it with noodles. I rarely make gravy, so I used a commercial gravy mix. Loved the mushroom sauce. There wasn't a lot left over (just a small portion for my cat) so I cannot see the full amount serving six, even if there were several side-dishes, so if you are making this for six, I'd suggest using more chicken and slightly increasing all the other ingredients. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Michelle.
