– Hey everyone, it’s Natasha
of natashaskitchen.com And today I’m gonna teach you how to make a chicken and mushroom casserole. Now I’ve seen this recipe online, or something similar
called Chicken Gloria; I can’t vouch for those recipes, but I know this one is so good. My sister’s mother in law
shared this recipe with me, and it’s one of the most
popular recipes on my website. You guys are gonna love it. (cheerful music) So lets talk about what you need. The ingredients are so simple. We need about four large chicken breast, then some salt and pepper,
about a cup of flour, some oil to saute`, about
a pound of mushrooms thickly sliced, one medium onion chopped, three medium garlic
cloves, minced or pressed; and then for the sauce
you need three tablespoons of butter then a cup and
a half of chicken broth, three tablespoons of
flour, about a tablespoon of lemon juice, and a
cup of half and half, or you can mix milk with heavy
whipping cream to get a cup. So to get started, lets
slice up this chicken. So we’re gonna cut it up
into about one inch strips. And you can cut them smaller
if you want them smaller. (cheerful music) You can also use chicken tenders for this if you want it to be easier and then you don’t have to slice anything. Now we’re gonna season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper. (crunching) A little pepper. Okay, lets flip them over
and season the other side. (crunching) Okay, nicely seasoned. And now is a good time to preheat a medium large pan with
three tablespoons of oil. And I like to set it
over medium high heat. (cheerful music) Just drizzle some oil in there. And now what we’re gonna do is dredge the chicken in flour. Just to get it nicely coated. You can do several pieces of chicken at a time just to speed things up. And transfer that to a platter. Shake off any excess flour as you go. It’s also a good time to preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. (sizzling) And now that our skillet is hot and ready, we can go ahead and saute` our chicken. Don’t crowd the pan just put
it in one layer at a time. And you want to saute`
until it’s golden brown. Just a light golden brown. You’re not too concerned about cooking the chicken all the way
through at this point. Remember you’re still
gonna bake this dish. Our chicken is golden
and we’re gonna transfer it into a 13 by 9 baking dish. (pouring)
(cheerful music) Scrape the debris out of your pan. Then add another three
tablespoons of olive oil. Now we’re gonna saute` the mushrooms along with the onions just
until they’re nice and soft. This will take about
five to seven minutes. Then stir in your garlic, and cook that about one to two minutes or until it’s nice and fragrant. (sizzling) Transfer the mushroom
mixture onto your chicken. Now we’re gonna reduce
the heat to medium low and wipe out that same
skillet with a paper towel. Then melt in three tablespoons of butter. Once that’s melted, you’re gonna whisk in three tablespoons of flour. And let that saute`,
whisking it for about one to two minutes until it’s nicely golden. Then whisk in your cup and
a help of chicken broth, and one tablespoon of lemon juice. Whisk that together until it’s creamy. Finally, mix in one cup of half and half, and bring everything to a light simmer. (whisking) Taste the sauce to see if
it needs a little more salt. (cheerful music) Just a teensy bit. So just add a little salt to taste. (crunching) Pour that sauce over the
chicken and mushrooms. Now you’re just gonna cover this with foil or a lid if you have one. Bake at 350 degrees for
45 minutes and it’s done. (clinking)
(cheerful music) Okay our chicken is out of the oven and it smells so good. Taste even better I’ll tell you that. Oh yum. Take a look at that. It’s so creamy. Of course we have to have a sample. So lets do this thing. (clinking) Get some mushrooms. You can serve this over potatoes, over pasta, rice, anything
you can dream up really. Oh creamy and good. It’s hot. Can’t wait. I really can’t wait. (laughing) (cheerful music) (moaning) Wow! It’s just like unbelievable flavor. Super creamy, it’s a chicken
with a gravy all in one. Yum. (moaning) You guys are seriously gonna love this and so will your family, and your friends, and everybody in your church. (chuckles) Thank you so much for
joining me in my Kitchen. Enjoy this recipe and we’ll see you later. (cheerful music)
