Well we are heading into Mother’s Day weekend with lots of rain and dreary weather on this Mitten Movie Night. Trying not to get too down because we have really had great weather lately and it really was a long time coming. Since it’s rainy out tonight we will stay in and make these easy sandwiches and enjoy a cold Latitude 42 Michigan Honey Amber.  This beer is such a unique mix of honey and citrus. The nice thing about this chicken sandwich is that it pairs so well with a big flavor craft beer like this.  For me the perfect meal is this-a great beer and sandwich.  Tonight we are watching Super Troopers! We had date night last weekend and watched Super Troopers 2 so naturally we have to go back and re-watch the original classic. Now on to the sandwich.

Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees and grease a sheet pan. This sandwich is a great use of cooked chicken. If you have a rotisserie chicken on hand shred it up.  Did you cook some chicken in the crock-pot and have some leftover? Great!  Even boil 2 chicken breasts on the stove top. Whichever way you choose to cook your chicken breast shred it then add to the pan.  On top of that add the sliced mushrooms. Pop into the oven and cook for 10 minutes.  After 10 minutes take the pan out of the oven and add the cheese then put pan back into the oven for another 5 minutes to let the cheese melt.

For the buns I decided that I wanted them to be steamed and not toasted.  I tried a little trick to steam buns in the microwave that I found online and it worked really well! Just leave them in the plastic bag (of course remove the bag tie first which could have metal on it) then microwave for 30 seconds, viola! Fresh steamed buns.

The sauce is simply made by combining 1/4 cup mayonnaise and 2 Tbs Caesar dressing.  This adds a creamy layer of flavor to the sandwich.  Slather the sauce on the buns then slide the chicken, mushroom and cheese filling on to each bun.  Pair with some chips.  I recommend Better Made Garlic Dill Pickle!  And here you are……

Skillet Chicken, Mushrooms & Garlic

Looking to have a cozy Friday night in?  And how would you like to make up a chicken dinner that can be made all in one pan and bake while you lounge on the couch reading or watching movies?

So tonight for Mitten Movie Night I made one of my favorites, a simple chicken dinner.  I love nothing more than chicken with a light gravy and mashed potatoes.  This meal paired so well with the White Chocolate Blonde from Grand Armory Brewing that we picked up when we were out hunting for Hopslam.  With only a hint of chocolate it went great with the meaty mushrooms, tender chicken and light sauce perfectly.

Recommended to watch: The Secret of Marrowbone.  This movie had me thinking about it long after it was over.  A little bit of horror with a surprise twist at the end.  So cuddle up because the weather is still cold and let’s get to the meal.

Do you have a cast iron skillet?  If not this dish works well in a dutch oven too.  I’ve been using my cast iron like crazy since I got it this summer.  Before having one I always thought that it would be too intimidating but I was simply wrong about it. Easy to clean and you can make everything from burgers to dessert in it.

Start off by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.  On the stove heat the pan and add the 1/4 cup olive oil. On a plate add the flour, salt, pepper and thyme.  Combine the spices and flour together then dredge each chicken piece into it then add them skin side down to the pan.  Cook for 5 minutes, flip over and cook another 5 minutes on the other side.  While the chicken is cooking chop the onion, clean the mushrooms and get the garlic peeled.

Once the chicken is cooked remove and put on a separate plate.  The chicken does not have to be cooked you just wanted to crisp up the skin.  To the same pan add 1 Tbs of butter.  With a spatula bring up the little bits on the bottom of the pan and add the onions.  Brown them until translucent for 2-3 minutes.  By now the kitchen should be smelling amazing!

Now that the onions are cooked add the liquids: wine and chicken stock.  Add the chicken back to the pan.  Then finally add the mushrooms and garlic on top of that.  Turn off the heat to the skillet on the stove top then put the whole pan into the oven.

Cook the chicken for 60 minutes but to keep it moist every 15 minutes take a spoon and pour the juices from the pan over the chicken.  While it’s cooking make up some mashed potatoes and a vegetable side.  Plate it up and here you are…..
