If you haven’t tried the classic Ukrainian mushroom and chicken gravy with vegetables we have posted on our blog, you are truly missing out (recipe HERE). It’s such a wonderful recipe that is loved by all who have tried it. In the Ukrainian/Russian culture, serving gravy over mashed potatoes is almost a must. Unlike the traditional brown gravy in America, the gravy I grew up with is a meal in itself. It typically has a meat (chicken or beef), with vegetables, it’s very thick and filling. I made the Chicken Marsala once for dinner and as I was serving the chicken with the mashed potatoes, a thought came to create a recipe for gravy with the ingredients. I tried once, it was a huge hit. The whole family loved the concept. Hubby asked for seconds, and that usually means it’s really good. I just had to tweak the recipe to get the proportions right with the thickness of the gravy. Once I had it finalized, I couldn’t wait to share it with you.

I really like using chicken thighs in this recipe, the meat comes out really tender. You then have the added flavor from the mushrooms and Marsala wine with chicken broth. A most perfect combination. The beauty of this recipe is that it can be served on your favorite side. You can serve it over creamy mashed potatoes, buckwheat, rice or even over pasta (whichever pasta is your favorite).

Enjoy this recipe with a simple side salad, homemade bread and dessert of course.

I really like using THIS skillet with a cover for recipes such a this one. You can make everything in one pan and it cooks wonderfully. This is my favorite and most used pan for just about every recipe. It has tall sides so the ingredients you are cooking with don’t splash onto the stove top. The added cover is so nice.
