Here's another Cajun favorite that is so perfect for those busy days. The succulent chicken is packed with flavor and the caramelized onions and mushrooms make the most delicious gravy that you can imagine. So easy to make, and so mouthwatering good, too. Bon appetit!
Smothered Chicken w/ Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms
2 tbs.'s vegetable oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 can chunky portabello mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 tbs. Cajun seasoning
1 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
Few shakes Tabasco
Season chicken breasts with the Cajun seasoning, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco. In large skillet, brown chicken breasts in oil, on medium high, heat for about 10 minutes on each side. Remove from skillet and add onions and mushrooms.
Add a little bit of water, if needed, and scrape the bottom of the skillet to release brown bits. Continue to cook, stirring often, until onions and mushrooms have a caramel color and are softened.
Add 1/4 cup of water, parsley, plus a little more Cajun seasoning, stir, and return the chicken to the skillet. Lower heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.Garnish with green onions and serve over hot cooked rice with your favorite veggies and a nice loaf of French bread for a hearty meal. Cest bon, cher!
