Wedding Chicken




One year for Christmas we put together a small family cookbook; everyone was to submit their favorite recipes. Wedding Chicken was submitted by most everyone--it is that good! Candise had it at a wedding luncheon, hence the name, "Wedding Chicken".

When I think of 'comfort food' this recipe fits the bill. Max loved it so much that he would hurry home from school during lunch and have a big plate.

Wedding Chicken comes together quickly, I would put it in my 30-minute meal category. It is delicious over brown rice, white rice, noodles or Max's favorite mashed potatoes. Yes, this has comfort written all over it! Now Max is on a mission we do have a leftover problem!!



WEDDING CHICKEN 

5-6 chicken tenders (purchased at Costco) cut in 1/2 inch cubes
3 tablespoons flour
3 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
Combine in a plastic bag and coat chicken.
2-3 Tablespoons butter
3/4 cup chopped onion
4 ounces sliced mushrooms
2 garlic cloves—minced
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup sour cream
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
Melt butter, add coated chicken and sauté until brown. Add onions, mushrooms and garlic; sauté about 3 minutes. Add broth, bring to a boil and cook 5 minutes until chicken is cooked and sauce is slightly thickened. Remove from heat and add sour cream. Add additional broth if needed for desired thickness. Garnish with parsley.
Serve over rice, noodles or potatoes.
Edited to make 4 portions.

Hi Cindy! I tried to find an email for you but couldn't.

First of all, I love the "surprise" cookies (right?) in your header!

Secondly, the brownie recipe is an allrecipes recipe - I just changed the add in's. :) Feel totally free to post and if you want to refer to me that is fine also!

I look forward to following your new blog!
