My Favorite Company Chicken recipe

This is a delicious company chicken casserole I've used for years. It can be easily doubled.
It can be prepared and refrigerated the day before, and popped into the oven before guests arrive.

Chicken with Artichokes and Mushrooms

One med. chicken cut in parts, or parts of chicken of your choice
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 Tbs. chopped parsley
2 Tbs. veg. oil
2 Tbs. butter
1 can artichoke hearts (water packed) drained and cut in quarters
1/2 lb. mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup dry Sherry, or Vermouth, or dry white wine. (Sherry is best)
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
additional chopped parsley

Season chicken with paprika, salt, pepper, and parsley. Combine oil and butter in a large skillet, and brown chicken till nicely colored. Arrange chicken in a 9x13, or in a pretty casserole with a lid. Tuck artichoke quarters among the chicken pieces. In the remaining grease in the skillet, saute mushrooms 5 min. Sprinkle the flour over mushrooms and stir till combined. Slowly whisk in the Sherry and broth, and make sure to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet, taste and adjust salt and pepper. Simmer about 5 minutes and pour over chicken and artichokes.
Cover tightly with foil and place in oven at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes. Remove cover, sprinkle with parsley and serve with steamed rice, or mashed potatoes.

I've used a chicken and artichoke casserole recipe that is similar, but not the same. I used frozen artichokes. I can't remember where the recipe is now but it would be nice to find it, especially since the weather is getting a bit cooler and good casserole weather.

Licia, I've used frozen artichokes too with equal results. I'd love to see your recipe if you can find it. It's such a nice combo of flavors.

MA........eee gads, dinner for 9? Good for you, GF. What did you serve?

Kayelle, we call this one Rose's Party chicken! I love it! I think I may have posted it too. Nice to know that great minds (and palates) think alike.

I went easy on myself and served simple things to prepare (but still wasn't all that simple for me). Grilled Angus tenderloins, baby asparagus, fresh fruit medley* (strawberries, asst melons, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries), fresh roasted small red/white/blue potatoes, roasted butternut squash, and asst red wines.

The appetizers stole the show though. I used Bobby Flay's recipe for "Black Pepper-Basil Farmers Cheese Bruschetta with Tomato". The lemon zest addition (and the garlic of course) made it extra yummy!

Dessert was strawberry cheesecake icecream cake since it was a birthday celebration as well.

*I always like to serve fruit with the main meal.

Hi Kayelle...here's a version from my mother:

Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole

2 3lb fryers cut up

Cook chicken in these ingredients then cool and bone:
1 Cup water
1 Cup sherry
1/2 tsp curry
1 medium onion
1/2 diced celery

Add these ingredients:
1 lb mushrooms sauteed in butter
4 Tbsp butter
2 pkgs long grain wild rice cooked in chicken broth
1 Cup sour cream
1 can mushroom soup
1 pkg (8 oz) dried fruit diced
1/4 Cup slivered almonds toasted

Combine and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
You can freeze and thaw completely.
