Chicken and Mushroom Fricassee


Yum

ONE PAN MEAL!! Chicken and Mushroom Fricassee:  The perfect comfort food for a cold winter's night!  Slice of Southern

Let's make comfort food!

Let's make a skillet meal!  I'm definitely in!  It's super cold In So. Cal and I'm freezing all the time.  I went and bout a coat that was lined with Sherpa all over the inside, even the hood.  I need it.  This bone chilling cold is not making for a happy So Cal gal!  Bring me the sun, or at least some comfort food to warm me up until spring arrives.  I know I sound like a baby, saying 50's and 60's is cold, but for a native Californian, this makes me wonder how everyone living in snow states does it?

So to keep us warm and cozy I decided to go retro and make Chicken and Mushroom Fricassee.  This is a dish from way back and actually refers to a cooking method of taking cut up meat, saute and then braise it in a wonderful white sauce.  I've added mushrooms for good measure and I must say this was so delish!!!

The best part is it is made all in one pan!  The sauce is served over the chicken and you'll have a wonderful, comforting dinner on the table in no time.

I've used chicken breasts, but thighs will work perfectly as well.  I hope you are keeping warm.  I'm wearing my jacket now, and it's nice and toasty!  This dish will keep you tummy toasty too and the whole family is sure to love it.


Enjoy!

Add in a ladle of the hot the sour cream , whisking to temper.  Add the egg/sour cream mixture to the skillet and stir to combine.  Add the zest, juice and stir to combine.  Pour the mushroom mixture over the chicken on the platter and serve.
