Ingredient Notes

  • Hen Breast Cutlets: I typically purchase an enormous pack of boneless, skinless hen breasts on the retailer after which use kitchen shears to trim them all the way down to make 5-6 oz cutlets to make use of in recipes. All the pieces I minimize off to make the cutlets will get minimize into chunks to make hen bites, akin to my Nashville Sizzling Hen BitesLemon Pepper Hen Bites, or Blackened Hen Bites. It’s straightforward to weigh out 1 lb or 1.5 lb of hen chunks and a few 5 oz cutlets and freeze them for later in quart measurement freezer baggage. That method, I at all times have some cutlets and a few hen bites readily available!
  • Higher Than Bouillon: In the event you don’t have this, you’ll be able to substitute powdered bouillon or cubes for the Higher Than Bouillon, however I extremely advocate buying it. I’ve seen it in just about each grocery retailer I’ve been to, together with a small native retailer in my space, so you need to have the ability to discover it fairly simply. I’ve the hen, beef and vegetable bases in my fridge always. BTB is kind of a paste reasonably than a powder, and the flavour is simply unmatched in my view!
  • Gravy Grasp: I at all times use this after I make gravy! Gravy Grasp provides taste and browning to your gravy in a method that enhances the entire thing. Kitchen Bouquet is an identical product by a distinct model, so when you have that readily available then be at liberty to make use of that as a substitute!
  • Mushrooms: I used sliced white mushrooms, however child bellas would even be nice on this recipe!
  • Mild Butter: I at all times have a bathtub of Land-O-Lakes Mild Butter Unfold with Canola Oil in my fridge, as a result of it’s the primary butter product that I take advantage of. I prefer it in recipes and in addition on toast, and so forth. It really works nice and is much less energy/factors than conventional butter.
