Jessi's Mushroom Chicken

Here is another of Jessi's kitchen creations. She's the master of making it work with what's on hand. This recipe happened when an insane mushroom craving slammed into a desire to make Chicken Marsala (when I had nothing even closely resembling Marsala Wine in my house). We tried to class it up after the first time we made it, but soon learned to keep it simple. I still want to try this with a little parsley though...

--1 to 1 1/2 lbs Chicken Breast, cut into small pieces
--1 small Yellow Onion, diced
--3 cups of White Mushrooms, well cleaned and sliced
--1/4 cup Soy Sauce
--A couple Saltine Crackers (or some white flour)

Brown chicken with butter in a pan over medium heat. When cooked through, set it aside in a bowl. Return pan to heat and melt a little more butter. Add the onion and saute until it is clear. Add the mushrooms and soy sauce. Cook until the mushrooms have reduced in volume. Add the chicken. If necessesary, thicken the sauce by crumbling in a couple of Saltines (or a little white flour). Toss with pasta.
