When they invented the phrase “home-style,” they probably had plates of chicken with mushroom gravy next to their dictionaries and thesauri. It just tastes like a Mom made it; either from a recipe handed down from her mother, or an item she found in a newspaper or magazine. (Kids, ask your parents what those are.) The umami flavors of mushroom, enriched by cream and sherry wine, enrobe the chicken with something both special and comforting. Home-style isn't just a branding word, but a feeling, a feeling we think we've captured well here. Tip: Easy way to mince rosemary? Quickly strip the leaves from their stem by holding the single sprig at the top, pinch the stem with two fingers, and quickly run your fingers down the stem to remove all the leaves. Bunch all the leaves into a pile, then mince to desired size.
