If You Get A Frugal Chick’s Newsletter Change Is Coming

If you receive A Frugal Chick’s newsletter you missed it yesterday!

The e-mail has always come to you from my e-mail address which is AOL.  This week AOL changed their rules so that I can no longer use it.

Now the newsletter will be coming from an address that ends in @afrugalchick.com.

The newsletter will be EXACTLY the same but for some of you this new address might mean it goes in your spam folder.

So I would love you all very much if around 3 p.m. today when you get your newsletter you make sure it will safely make it into your inbox.  I would hate for you to miss a deal!

Don’t get my newsletter?  Look in the upper right hand corner of my site and you can sign up!

Chicken with Mushroom Sauce Recipe



Chicken with Mushroom Sauce Recipe

I needed a simple Chicken with Mushroom Sauce Recipe.  I had a more complicated recipe for chicken and mushrooms that included wine and shallots and several other ingredients that I made often.  However, this recipe was born of necessity,  needing to use what I had on hand instead of making a run for the store I had to make it a little simpler. It worked out deliciously and is much quicker to prepare- just 7 ingredients ( I had to cheat a bit on our 5 ingredients or less recipes) and it still has tons of flavor. It is a rich, comfort food that is good enough for company and easy enough to make after a long day of work-since it takes less than 30 minutes start to finish.

  Ingredients:

4 large chicken breasts

4 Tbsp. butter

1 cup chicken broth

1/4 cup milk

1 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar

12- oz. can mushroom pieces

1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:

Melt 2 Tbsp. of butter in a large saucepan.

Brown chicken in butter over medium heat on each side for  5-6 minutes.

 Add mushrooms, scrape all the bits up from bottom and sauté until mushrooms begin to brown.
