Chicken & Gravy over Noodles

This is one of those recipes that just got tossed together using what ingredients I had on hand. To my surprise it got thumbs up from everyone sitting at the dinner table that night. 
Gotta love when that happens! 

Chicken & Gravy over Noodles

1 large onion, diced
olive oil
3 lb. chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
salt & pepper
1 tsp. Cajun seasoning
2/3 cup Sherry cooking wine
2 cups chicken broth
1 can evaporated milk
1 envelope brown gravy mix
any ol' noodles, cooked

Saute onion in a splash of olive oil and then remove them from the pan.
Next brown chicken bites in the same pan that you just sauteed the onions in.
While they are browning sprinkle a little salt & pepper along with the Cajun seasoning.
Once chicken is browned go ahead and toss the onions back into the pan.
Add the Sherry and then using a flat edged spatula or wooden spoon begin scraping the bottom of the pan to loosen any bits that have stuck on. 
Add chicken broth and let simmer until chicken is cooked through.
Add evaporated milk and gravy packet.
Stir and cook until thickened.
Serve over hot noodles.

That sounds delicious and if everyone liked it then I can imagine you'll make it again:) I'm hoping to still make a trip to amish country sometime in the spring but will have to see, we need to put in a new bathtub and surround as well:/ Chris is getting ready to book his flight this week, WAH, I wanna go but Kiah doesn't eat when we are gone so I will stay here and wait my turn *sigh*
