This Chicken with Mushroom Gravy is a total crowd pleaser, and a great quick one for midweek! Juicy, pan seared chicken breast is smothered with a mushroom gravy that is absolutely to die for. And don’t worry – this recipe makes plenty of gravy!
Winner, winner … Chicken with Mushroom Gravy!
I looked at the homepage of my website the other day and all I could see was golden, brown, yellowy foods. Working backwards from the most recent: Cheesy topped Spinach Ricotta Cannelloni (mostly yellow), Spring Rolls (golden brown), Crispy Roasted Parmesan Potatoes (golden brown), Baked Vegetables and Rice (some colour, mostly brown seasoned rice), 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies (100% brown).
I vowed to share something colourful this week. Bright, fresh colours, lots of green. I wanted to brighten up my website, darn it!!!!
And wait until you see the weekend recipe on Friday. It’s more brown.
Fact: Brown foods rock. The golden brown bits of any dish are always the best. Slow cooked stews, curries, pies – this type of food is me.
Healthy food blogs are probably very green with lots of colourful veggies.
My blog is very brown. And I’m totally cool with that. 😉
So here’s some more brown food for you – Chicken with Mushroom Gravy.
I know many people are extremely fond of cooking with chicken breast, but for me, it’s more the exception rather than the rule. I’m a dark meat gal – thighs, wings, drumsticks, basically every other part of the chook. Body only, I don’t do the chicken feet thing – do you?? 😉
But on this occasion, with all that sauce and a quick pan sear, chicken breast works great. Of course, it would be terrific with thigh too!
I think Mushroom Gravy is my favourite type of gravy. I say “think”, because I’m a little brain washed at the moment, seeing all these photos, and I can’t think of any other type of gravy or gravy type sauce right now.
My one little tip is to make this gravy with beef rather than chicken broth. I know it sounds counter intuitive, to use beef broth when you’re making a chicken recipe. But trust me, beef broth works better. It has a more intense flavour, but the beef flavour doesn’t overpower the dish. In fact, though people with a refined palette may notice the beef flavour, normal people wouldn’t.
They’ll just know this gravy is to die for. 🙂 – Nagi x
PS Beef broth also makes the gravy a nice deep brown colour, whereas chicken broth makes a pale brown gravy. You can use chicken broth if you prefer, but I’d add some extra flavour into the sauce – see notes in the recipe.
