One of my favorite foods is mushrooms; and one my kids favorite foods is fried chicken. Put them together, and you have happy kids, and a happy mommy. Love!
This dish tastes delicious and isn’t very complicated. It will impress your family! Wanna know the secret? It’s actually super easy to make! Especially if you cheat and buy the fried chicken pre-cooked. Safeway has pre-cooked fried chicken strips in their deli section, and they are delicious. That’s my secret!
Mushroom Bourbon Fried Chicken recipe:
- 8 pieces of fried chicken
- 11 oz. (or 2 cans) sliced mushrooms
- 3 pats of butter
- 2 tablespoons olive oil (extra virgin)
- 1/3 cup chopped onions (green or white-your choice-I use white)
- 1/3 cup bourbon
- 1 cup heavy cream
Heat all together in a large skillet, occasionally turning the fried chicken over to soak up the sauce on both sides. Ensure the butter melts and mixes well into the mixture. Cook 20 minutes. Serve with chopped vegetables.
Things you may need to cook Mushroom Bourbon Fried Chicken at home:
When I photographed my Mushroom Bourbon Fried Chicken, I served it with corn casserole. The corn casserole did not come out very good, and tasted like a breakfast food. I recommend serving this dish with your favorite vegetables instead. It is very heavy, and vegetables will balance out your plate. Serving Mushroom Bourbon Fried Chicken with a heavy side dish will be too much to digest. That’s why a simple vegetable such as slice carrots or zucchini, makes the perfect side dish.
I hope you enjoy my Mushroom Bourbon Fried Chicken recipe! The alcohol cooks out, so this dish is safe to serve to your kids, as well anyone who doesn’t drink alcohol. No-one will get a buzz 😉
