"An easy to make Creamy Mushroom Chicken recipe with tender, juicy chicken cutlets and savory mushrooms, smothered in a delicious savory creamy garlic sauce."



Tender and juicy chicken is cooked with browned mushrooms and garlic and then coated with the most amazing creamy sauce. Leftovers of this dish almost never exist in my house, it’s just that good.


Creamy Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

Servings – 4 Prep Time – 15 Minutes Cook Time – 20 Minutes

Ingredients:


  • 4 large boneless chicken breasts and skinless, cut each breast into two cutlets

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour, gluten free flour can also be used

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 8-9 ounces mushrooms cremini or white, sliced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 cup chicken stock

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

  • Fresh herbs chives, basil or parsley, for garnish optional

Directions:


Start by seasoning the chicken cutlets with salt and pepper. Then sprinkle flour over each breasts and spread to cover.


In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat, swirling the pan to coat with melted butter.


Add chicken to the pan, working in batches if needed to avoid crowding the pan. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through to a temperature of 165°F. Transfer chicken to a plate, cover to keep warm, and set aside.


Add remaining butter to the pan, add the sliced mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and sauté until the mushrooms start to soften and have a golden brown edge.


Add the garlic and cook briefly for about 30 seconds, while stirring.


Deglaze the pan with chicken stock, scraping up any bits that have stuck to the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and let it simmer until it’s reduced and thickened.


Add the cream, whisk everything together to warm through. Add parmesan. Taste the sauce and add additional salt and pepper if needed.


Return the chicken to the skillet, spoon the sauce over the chicken. Garnish with fresh herbs before serving (parsley, basil, or chives).

Copy Cat Recipe - aka Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie


"Toll House Pie, or Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie, is rich, chocolatey and 100% delicious! It’s a decadent dessert enjoyed warm with a scoop of ice cream!"


What is Toll House Pie?

Imagine a delicious gooey chocolate chip cookie baked in a pie crust….yeah, it’s SO good!  Whether you call it the Original Toll House Pie, Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie or whatever else, I have a feeling you’ll fall in love!  


Why is it called Toll House Pie?

According to the New Yorker Magazine, Ruth Wakefield and her husband ran the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts. They pressed some of their cookie dough into a pie crust, baked it and the visitors loved it. In 1939 Wakefield gave Nestle the rights to the chocolate chip cookie recipe (and the Toll House name) for one dollar!  


Toll House Pie - aka - Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Servings – 10 Prep Time – 15 Minutes Cook Time – 55 Minutes Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 3/4 cup salted butter, softened - but not melted!

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, optional

  • One 9-inch pie crust, my Flakey Homemade Pie Crust is excellent if you’ve got a little extra time on your hands

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325°F.


In a large bowl (or the bowl of a stand mixer), whisk the eggs until foamy.


Add the flour, sugar and brown sugar and mix well.


Mix in the softened butter and vanilla and then the chocolate chips and nuts (if using).


Pour the batter into your prepared pie crust and smooth the top.


Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick halfway between the center and the pie crust comes out clean.


Notes:


How to Serve:

This Toll House Cookie Pie is great served warm or at room temperature.  I like to serve warm slices of Toll House Pie warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. A dollop of whipped cream would do, also, but there’s just something about a melty scoop of ice cream on a warm pie! Then add a quick drizzle of chocolate syrup or hot fudge over the pie and you’ll have a treat nobody can resist! 


How to Store:

As for leftovers... If there is any... they do not need to be refrigerated, but will stay good a couple days longer if they are. Store on the counter covered with plastic wrap for up to 3 days or in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also freeze leftover slices in freezer bags for 2-3 months.

"In my opinion, it’s not necessarily better or worse, it’s just different.  If you’re going for the easiest cheesecake recipe, no bake is where it’s at!  It doesn’t take much time at all to whip up and is super delicious.  A traditional cheesecake is more dense and richer in flavor."
