Easy Chicken & Mushrooms

Easy Chicken & Mushrooms

This is my no-fail, foolproof dinner that’s easy to make and feels like fine dining. If you’re bothered (I am) by the squishy-ness of mushrooms but love the taste, just fine chop them in a food processor. Mushrooms are immune system boosters. Serve over rice or noodles with a vegetable on the side.

    Jenny religious observance prevents me from mixing milk and meat in cooking. Can you please suggest a substitute for the milk. Would non dairy almond milk work here? Thank you so much. I love your recipes

      I have only used milk and don’t want to suggest something I have never tried. You may just have to try…

    Made this tonight. It was flavorful, but the sauce was thinner than I thought it would be so I served it as a soup. Is the sauce suppose to be thicker?

    • Jenny

      It’s not a thick sauce but it should be nowhere close to a soup. If you used fat free milk, it might have caused the sauce to be too thin. I’ve been making this dish for years and for me, the sauce is just right to coat the chicken and stir into the rice to make it creamy. Assuming you did not change the recipe, feel free to use a little more flour.
