A quick-to-cook mushroom sauce deliciously coats rotisserie chicken pieces in a 30-minute main dish.
Updated February 1, 2010

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 medium onion, sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 package (8 oz) sliced fresh mushrooms (3 cups)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 jar (12 oz) chicken gravy
  • 1 tablespoon dry sherry, if desired
  • 1 deli rotisserie chicken (2 to 2 1/2 lb), cut into serving pieces, skin removed if desired
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Steps

  • 1
    In 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Cook onion and mushrooms in butter 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are tender and beginning to brown. Stir in sugar. Cook about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are very brown.
  • 2
    Stir gravy and sherry into vegetables. Add chicken to skillet; spoon sauce over chicken.
  • 3
    Cover; cook 5 to 10 minutes, turning chicken after half the cooking time, until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with parsley.

  • If the chicken is cold or cut into quarters, the cook time to heat it will be a bit longer. Serve this tasty chicken dish with Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes (p. 86) and buttered broccoli spears.
