We all love chicken. For one thing it is a versatile meat, but it is also very inexpensive. The problem with chicken is coming up with new recipes for it! We eat it a lot here so I am constantly trying to find a new way to prepare it. I came up with this just fooling around and the entire family just loves it! I don’t know why I call it Chicken Surprise other than I was so surprised how well it came out! This is a rather low carb meal too, for those of us who care.
4-5 whole chicken legs
1 large onion
2 cups sliced mushrooms (white, Bella, or Portobello)
3 small cloves of garlic, crushed and lightly chopped.
32 ounces of chicken broth
16 ounces of heavy cream
1/2 stick of butter
Salt and pepper
In a large skillet, coat the bottom of the pan with about an 1/8 of an inch of canola oil and heat to medium high (just below smoking point). Slice the onion in half, remove the skin and then cut each half into large, thin slices. Add to oil and cook until dark golden brown (almost crispy).
In the meantime, take the whole chicken legs and divide them into thighs and drum sticks by cutting them at the “elbow” joint. You save $$ by doing this yourself but if you are intimidated, you could always by 5 of each instead. Season liberally with Seasoned Salt on both sides.
