Charlie’s Chicken

Sharlene and I

One of my best friend’s made this dish at her Christmas party this year and my children and I loved it so I copied it down and gave it a try. I haven’t perfected it yet but I will keep trying. Charlie is her father in-law and this is his recipe.


1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. salt
Dash thyme
3 to 4 lbs chicken tenders
1/4 to 1 cup olive oil and butter combined
4 green onions sliced
1/2 cup mushrooms sliced
2 TB lemon juice
1 tsp. sugar
1/3 cup apple juice


Mix flour, 1 tsp. salt, pepper, and thyme in plastic bag, add chicken and shake to coat well. Brown chicken in oil/butter and remove to casserole dish.
Add onions and mushrooms to sauté pan that you used to cook chicken and simmer for 3 minutes, add vegetables to casserole dish. Mix lemon juice, sugar, 1 tsp. salt, and apple juice together and pour over chicken.
Bake at 325 degrees covered with foil for 60 minutes.
