Paprika Chicken with Mushroom Gravy

Paprika Chicken with Mushroom Gravy












This creamy mushroom sauce here is a cut above the usual basic recipes, thanks to the additions of Parmesan and chicken stock. The chicken is so tender and juicy and added to rice or mashed potatoes, it turns this quick chicken dinner into a meal that's both worthy and elegant enough to serve to company! 

Paprika Chicken with Mushroom Gravy

1 pack boneless, skinless, chicken tenders, about a pound

1 teaspoon salt

1/ teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons butter

1 small onion chopped


Mushroom Sauce


2 tablespoons butter

oz mushrooms, sliced (Baby Bella or Cremini)

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 cup dry white wine (or use an extra ¼ cup chicken stock)

1/2 cup chicken stock, low sodium

1 cup heavy cream, 

1/2 cup fresh Parmesan, finely grated


Pat down chicken tenders with a paper towel.  Season both sides with salt, pepper, paprika, onion and garlic powder.














Add butter and olive oil to a skillet over medium high heat.  Add in the tenders and fry until golden brown on all sides.  Remove from skillet and keep warm.

















Add in onion and sauté until transparent and tender. In the same skillet, cook the mushrooms.  Add more butter if needed. Cook for about 4 minutes, until they start to turn golden brown on the edges. Add garlic and a pinch of salt and pepper, and continue cooking for another minute until both garlic and mushrooms are golden.













De glaze skillet: Add white wine (or ¼ cup chicken broth). Cook for 30 seconds, scraping the bottom of the pan, until wine is mostly evaporated and the alcohol smell is gone.

















Add chicken stock and cook vigorously for 1 minute so it mostly evaporates. Then add cream, lower heat to medium and simmer for 2 minutes until it reduces and thickens. Stir in Parmesan, taste and add more salt and pepper if needed.

















Return chicken to sauce on low heat for a minute to warm through and serve.   












 Wonderful when served with mashed potatoes or rice to soak in that amazing sauce!














So good!  So easy!
