Chicken with Mushroom Gravy
This chicken with mushroom gravy recipe features dusted and seasoned chicken breasts smothered in a silky gravy loaded with sauteed mushrooms.
- 1 ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt (plus more for dusting chicken)
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 2 tablespoons cooking oil
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 cups chicken Broth
- salt to taste
- 8 ounces sliced mushrooms (fresh, not canned)
Use a meat mallet to evenly pound the chicken breasts 1" thick, or less.
Mix together flour, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and oregano in a medium dish.
Lightly sprinkle chicken breasts with salt then dredge in the flour mixture to evenly coat.
Heat oil in a 12" skillet over medium heat and add chicken breasts. Cook for 5 minutes per side, or until the chicken reaches 165 degrees and the exterior has browned. Work in batches if needed.
Add mushrooms to a medium skillet and saute until tender. Add a splash of chicken broth to deglaze the skillet, reserving mushrooms and deglazing liquid.
Melt butter in a small saucepan set over medium-low heat and mix in flour. Stir continually until the mixture begins to deepen in color.
Slowly begin adding chicken broth, while still stirring, ensuring the liquid is incorporated before more is added. Stir in mushrooms and deglazing liquid.
If gravy is too thin, let it simmer for a few minutes to thicken. If the gravy gets too thick, add a few dribbles of water to thin it out. Prior to serving taste for salt and add more if needed.
If you like dark meat, feel free to substitute boneless skinless chicken thighs as well.
