Sunday Supper Suggestion, Rustic Chicken Medallions

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper, one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestions, and hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!

There are no rules for what is appropriate to serve for Sunday Dinner, it can be as fancy as you like or as frugal as you need! What makes Sunday Dinner special is who you get to dine with...

We have news! Proudly presenting our unique and delicious cookbook series, “Cooking by the Seat of my Pants!” from Our Sunday Cafe, available right here!

For this week's Sunday Dinner, I would like to suggest the following...

You could find a comforting, delicious, satisfying dish like this in your town's best cafe open for dinner, or even a country club setting, why? Because everyone loves food that fulfills hunger and satisfies a wanting palate. And when it is easy, so much the better. I stumbled upon this recipe on Kayotic Kitchen but have made some significant changes and played with it to make it company-worthy and weeknight-friendly.

Chicken, mushrooms and bacon go into Rustic Chicken Medallions.

Please don't be offended by the cream of mushroom soup, this is nothing like what you might expect from a meal containing a canned soup and after all you can make a substitute (which can be found on many blogs) if you like, but this dish is one you will enjoy time and time again if you love delicious, comforting and satisfying, I promise............

Serve Rustic Chicken Medallions with a spoon, to sip the delicious gravy!

We enjoyed our dinner with a serving of brown rice, however, next time this splendid gravy will be served with mashed potatoes.

By the seat of my pants
broiler & 350-degree oven

6-8 boneless chicken thighs, cut into 3-4 pieces, trimmed of excess fat
1 thick slice bacon, minced
2-3 T diced onion

1 t dried thyme leaves, before scattering over chicken, crumble in the palm of your hand
garlic salt
fresh ground pepper

2 T raisins, chopped fine
1 apple diced - you do not have to peel
8 medium-large brown Crimini mushrooms, sliced thick
1/2 c diced cheddar cheese

1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 can dry white wine

Cover the bottom of a flat pan with a lid, that you can use to broil the chicken (this saves clean up of a broiler pan)

Sprinkle the bacon over the chicken, broil until bacon is opaque, add onions and broil until golden. You want the onions to be a deep golden brown, but not to burn. Turn chicken over and broil a bit more to seal the surface of the chicken.

Season with the thyme leaves, garlic salt, and fresh ground pepper.

Scatter the raisins, apple pieces, mushroom slices, and diced cheese over the surface of the chicken.

Combine the soup and wine in a small bowl, pour over the chicken. Cover with a lid and bake for 40 minutes.

Remove lid and continue to cook an additional 20 minutes, the chicken should be tender, and the sauce will have reduced.

Serve in a soup plate or rimmed dinner plate beside your choice of, mashed red potatoes, rice or pasta. PS, serve with a spoon for sipping..............

Have a wonderful dinner!
