Smothered chicken

Hello Everyone!

A while ago, I posted the recipe from my friend Sally’s website for smothered porkchops.

I liked it very much and wondered if it would also work with chicken. And it did!

Last time I made it, I had some left. I cut up the chicken and added some water to the mushrooms and sauce and I had some mushroom/chicken soup for the next day.

I hope you’ll try it and who knows, you may come up with another way of making it J Be sure to let me know in the comments below.

Happy cooking!



Smothered chicken
