Easy Fall Entertaining - Make Ahead Garlic Mushroom Chicken

As you all know, I love to entertain and I love to have recipes that I can make-ahead and not be rushed at the last minute.  One of my all time favorites is this simple chicken dish.  It's inexpensive to feed a crowd and who doesn't love anything with some butter and mushrooms.  With Fall approaching we all need a few go-to meals that warm the tummy and are still easy to put together.


 This is such a simple dish to put together.  Slice some chicken breasts in half and then pound thin(like a cutlet)  Dredge in some flour and brown well on both sides in a little butter and oil mixture.  Place in a casserole dish.

 Next saute one onion in a small amount of oil until tender, add in some mushrooms and cook until softened.

 Add 1/2 stick of butter and 3 shopped garlic cloves and continue to cook until mushrooms are tender.

 When onions and mushrooms are tender, pour all over your chicken.  Add about 1/2 cup of chicken stock to dish.  Cover with foil and keep in fridge until ready to cook at 350 for approx 30 to 45 minutes.  (make sure your chicken is done.)

 That's it, easy and soooooooooooooooooooooo good.

This is a recipe that I've posted several times and has been pinned thousands of time. It is guaranteed to become a favorite.
