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!

What is in Pan Fried Chicken with Mushroom Gravy?

  • White mushrooms: These mushrooms are very common and their technical name is Agaricus bisporus! They are delicious raw or cooked and I love them sautéed or roasted. They are cheap to buy and contain potassium and protein.
  • Fresh Basil: Also called sweet basil and is an annual herb in the mint family. It's a great source of vitamin k, vitamin a, magnesium and iron. It has a sweet smell with a peppery taste.
  • Butter: A dairy product consisting of approximately 80% butterfat and made from the fat and protein components of milk or cream. Most commonly made from cow's milk, but can also be made from sheep, goat, yak, or buffalo milk.
  • All purpose flour: It's a combination of hard and soft wheats. Bleached flour provides a softer texture. It's versatile and you can bake or cook most anything with it!
