Baked Chicken with Shiitake Mushroom Gravy

Kathie Carr


I just love mushrooms. This is another recipe I adapted from one published in a women's magazine. They used button mushrooms, less seasoning, and canned gravy. I like this better.

How to Make Baked Chicken with Shiitake Mushroom Gravy


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
    Wash the chicken and then pat it dry with paper towels and put it into a baking dish. Sprinkle it with the salt, white pepper, garlic, and paprika. Then rub that into the chicken thoroughly. Next, add a little bit of water to the bottom of the baking dish. Put it in the oven and bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes to an hour, or until its almost done.
  2. While chicken is in oven saute mushrooms and onions in 2 T olive oil.

    Remove chicken from oven and add the chicken stock to the dish. Pour onions and shiitake mushrooms into pan. Add flour to all of that and stir it to get rid of as many lumps as possible. Then bake it all in the oven again until the sauce thickens up to whatever degree you like and chicken is completely cooked. That usually takes around 10 to 15 minutes.

    Garnish with a bit of chopped green onion for color if you like.
