Smothered Chicken (Using Leftover Chicken)

Total Time
Prep 0 mins
Cook 20 mins

My family enjoys this quick meal. I have used chicken I had cooked and had in the freezer, chicken from a leftover whole chicken I cooked and chicken from a deli rotisserie. I have also used jarred gravy and leftover gravy. It's been good either way. We like it served over egg noodles.

I think my cats would enjoy this more than I did.

I love this! It's a great way to use up leftover chicken. I made a few adjustments: carmelized the onions, added some dried herbs de provence and a splash of sherry to the mushrooms as they cooked. I turned this into a hash, by serving over browned red potato cubes.
