"This delicious chicken recipe includes a simple exercise in pan gravy perfection. If I only had one day to teach someone how to cook, you better believe this archetypal sauce recipe would be one of the first things I'd demonstrate."

I was looking for something different to do with my chicken breasts and this recipe was on the front page including a video on how to prepare. So easy and tasty and a big hit with the family! Didn't have to run to the grocery store because I had everything on hand. *I lied - except for the chipotle seasoning! I did a web search and found I could use a paprika, red pepper with a dash of chili powder as a substitute. About 1/2 tsp. paprika, 1/8 red pepper and a dash of chili powder. Will look for chipotle seasoning for the next time I make this!
2.5 stars. While this recipe was very simple and quick to make, it lacked depth and complexity of flavor. Wasn't really spicy, wasn't really anything. We found it bland and unexciting. It wasn't bad (or gross) it was just nothing we'd ever make or eat again (based on how many other amazing recipes there are out there). Guess it wasn't for me.
Awesomely delicious and easy prep. I didn't change a single thing. Just wish I had increased the servings. Next time is a sure thing.. great recipe, serious keeper and a repeater at my house, by request!! TY Chef John.
This was awesome and super easy! The only change I made was to scale this to 6 servings and used vegetable broth instead of chicken.
I could not find chipotle chile powder so I used cajun seasoning. Put a bit on the chicken too. Gravy was so good. Watch the video if you are not a gravy expert and you will master it!! I also shredded the leftover chicken and mixed it with the gravy for lunch the next day. Gravy is awesome
This is an amazing recipe! Easy and so very flavorful. I've made it several times and it's always perfect. I read a review about this being bland, that couldn't be further from the truth. You are the boss of your own seasoning.
YUMMY! This is definitely a must try for anyone, very easy to make. I doubled the entire recipe (except the butter, because that adds too much fat) I used 25% less sodium chicken broth and just 1-2 tablespoons of LIGHT butter. Instead of the chipotle seasoning, I used what another person had commented (1/2tsp paprika, 1/8tsp crushed red pepper and a dash of chilli powder and it worked out great. A little heat but not too much.) There was no left overs and I will be making this again! Save the calories/salt/fat where you can! =)
As I have begun to learn to cook in order to reduce my monthly expenses while still eating well, I found this recipe more than anything else really helped me grasp the process of cooking in a pan, keeping the oil and gravy from evaporating, etc. I think the author is correct about it being an excellent entry level recipe. It tastes quite good too.
