Smothered Chicken with Mushrooms

This Smothered Chicken with Mushrooms makes a delicious meal to serve for dinner tonight!

3 lb. frying chicken, cut in serving pieces

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil

1 1/2 cups chopped onions

1/4 cup flour

2 cups chicken broth or homemade recipe here

1 lb. mushrooms, sliced

1/4 cup chopped parsley

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Wash the chicken pieces and pat dry. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

In a large heavy skillet, heat the oil over high heat and brown the chicken pieces, turning when necessary. Adjust the heat so that the chicken browns quickly but does not burn. Transfer the chicken to a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish and place in one layer.

Add the onions to the skillet and cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes or until soft and lightly colored. Stir in the flour and mix well. Pour in the chicken broth and stirring constantly, bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let simmer for 2-3 minutes. Pour the sauce over the chicken in the casserole, cover tightly, and cook in the oven for about 20 minutes.  Scatter the mushrooms over the chicken, re-cover, and bake another 10 minutes or until chicken is tender. Sprinkle the parsley over the top and serve with Glazed Sweet Potatoes.
