Chicken and Mushroom Skillet

This is a new favorite at our house. We love any dinner that only requires that we dirty one pot, but this one is really good. For some reason this mixture makes the best gravy! You can serve it a bunch of different ways which just makes it better. Pour it over mashed potatoes, serve it with broccoli and a sweet potato or toss it over rice.
