This is an easy chicken and gravy recipe that can be prepared at the last minute. Serve with mashed potatoes or stuffing and green beans.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into bite-size pieces
- 1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
Place the chicken into a bowl, and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the flour over the chicken pieces and toss to coat.
Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Shake the excess flour off of the chicken, and reserve in the bowl. Place the chicken in the hot pan, and brown on all sides. Remove from the pan, and keep warm.
Whisk some of the chicken broth into the flour in the bowl until smooth. Stir this into the drippings in the skillet, then stir in the remaining broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, and return the chicken pieces to the skillet. Simmer over medium heat until the chicken is cooked through, and the sauce has thickened. Taste, and season with additional salt and pepper if desired.
