It's currently 1 degree here in central Minnesota, and I haven't left the house all day. 

School was cancelled due to low temps and dangerous windchill. 


Thankfully my Dad, who I work for, let me stay home. So my daughter and I have been lazy and cozy all day. Love it!



Days like this call for comfort food and I have the perfect comfort food for you today! 

These Pan Fried Chicken Tenderloins are so delicious!! Nice and crispy on the outside and juicy in the middle. 


The Mushroom Gravy is to die for, although I am a sucker for anything with mushrooms, so it automatically goes to the top of the favorites list.


This meal is also pretty quick, so great for a weeknight. 

I would also serve it for Sunday dinner, along with some veggies and biscuits to make it a larger meal. It's also great served over some white or brown rice instead of mashed potatoes. 


Very versatile and delicious!

  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 pound chicken breast tenderloins
  • 1/4 cup flour

In a large skillet melt olive oil and 1 1/2 tablespoons butter over medium high heat.

Season tenderloins with salt and pepper on both sides, then coat with flour.

Place each tenderloin in the skillet and cook on each side for 4-5 minutes, until chicken is browned and cooked through.

Remove from pan and set aside.

In the same skillet melt the additional 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter and add the mushrooms.

Season with pepper and saute for 4-5 minutes. Add the chicken broth and basil, bring to a boil.
