Introduction: Learn How to Make Perfect Chicken Breasts in Mushroom Gravy Recipe.
In this recipe, the key to making moist and tender chicken breasts is to cook them in a slow cooker. There are many benefits of using this cooking method, including the fact that it allows you to put your hands on other things while the chicken is cooking.
Making perfect chicken breasts in mushroom gravy is easy with these tips and tricks:
– Use a good quality low-sodium broth (such as Better Than Bouillon) instead of water or broth for better flavor.
– Place all ingredients into your slow cooker in order of liquids, then flour mixture, then eggs followed by breadcrumbs. This will make sure you get the proper texture
.- Make sure to stir the ingredients before putting them in the slow cooker and then stirring occasionally during cooking time. This will help prevent clumps from forming in the sauce or chicken mixture.
– Do not discard leftover gravy but put it into a microwave-safe container and heat for about 20 seconds to reheat when needed.

- 4 large chicken breasts, boned and skinned,cut lengthwise into thin cutlets

Gently pour chicken broth into the mushroom mixture. Stir well and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until gravy is thickened and smooth.
