It’s Thanksgiving week here in Canada which means lots of cooking and baking for me. So this week for my Tuesday family meal blog I decided on an old family recipe that I thought would be not only a great meal but also one that the chicken could be substituted for everyone’s leftover turkey after the holidays.
There are so many versions of this recipe going way back to the 50’s but this is basically the one I grew up eating and making so it’s the one I am sharing on the blog.
There are definitely versions made from scratch but sometimes I really like to share some quick shortcut meals for weekdays with the fam. Let’s be honest, we sometimes just want a few good go to recipes with a few ingredients that are real crowd pleasers. If your kids hate mushrooms you could definitely leave them out and add in lots of peas and carrots.
I like the mushroom for tons of reasons though. The main one is the meatiness they provide and certain depth of flavour and richness that comes from the release of their juices into the sauce. But hey, I get it, some kids won’t even give something a go if they see even one mushroom in their food!!
I always serve this with mashed potatoes and either broccoli or beans. If you don’t want to bother with the puff pastry, skip it and just serve the chicken right over top of the taters!!
