Smothered Chicken with Creamy Mushroom Gravy

Smothered Chicken with Creamy Mushroom Gravy created by Sara M.

A nice quick entree after a hectic day at work. From Bon Appetit magazine. I saute the chicken longer than the time specified to make sure it's cooked through, or pound the breasts thinner.

    I used shiitake mushrooms and it was amazing! Wanted to lick the plate clean! The only thing I would have done differently was to slice the chicken breasts thin. I had to cook a little longer because of the thickness.

    My preschooler and I love mushroom gravy and this dish was a nice change from salisbury steak. I used half and half instead of heavy cream and did omit the allspice, only because I knew that was a flavor I wouldn't appreciate. It made for a delicious meal and a new way for us to enjoy mushrooms as a topper!

    Great recipe. Thanks for posting. I should have taken the advice of some other reviewers and flattened my chicken out a little more. I had to throw the chicken in the microwave to get the middle to cook so the gravy did not reduce too much while waiting for it to cook in the skillet. I will know for next time. Other than that, it was a great success at dinner.
