"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.
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.
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.
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
Yeah, this was good! Browning the chicken really added to it. I liked dark meat, and left the bone in. O, and I replaced the chipotle powder with chipotle in adobo sauce, minced. awesome!
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.
seriously yummy stuff - I had a little bit before I left for a meeting and was hoping to have more when I got home, but the rest of the family finished it off ... that rarely happens, especially with gravy
