  1. Place chicken in a bowl, and season with salt, pepper and garlic. Sprinkle the flour over the chicken pieces and toss to coat.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

I've come to a point where this dish has become a regular meal in my house. Over time, the outcome of the recipe has turned out better and better. I like to brown the chicken pieces quite a bit before adding the broth mixture. Also, I add some onion powder for more flavor. I like to make this with rice or potatoes. I give this recipe 5 stars! It's excellent.

I didn't think there was anything special about this.

Easy to make. For healthier eating use the EVOO, although one table. of vegetable oil and one of butter isn't going to kill a person. The recipe says to add the roux to the hot mixture. That will cause lumps. Heat the broth first, then add the flour. When it thickens add to the hot mixture. Fixing gravy this way will always prevent lumps. Flour has to be cooked a bit before adding to a hot mixture. Cornstarch doesn't.

Excellent recipie I will definitly add this to my box. I doubled the gravy and added onions,green beans,and carrots to the mix. Cooking it like a stew with very thick gravy. Came out so good. Thanks to this web site I am becoming a better cook. Or at least that is what my family is telling me, ha ha ha.

i made this last minute with chicken i had thawed the night before. it didn't look special but i needed something quick. oh my god!! this recipe was out of this world! it took no time at all and was delicious. i added a splash of white wine, just because i like the depth of flavor it gives. i made the recipe with stuffing and could have eaten the whole lb. of chicken it was so good. if the sauce gets too thick add more broth. one of the best things i've made off this site.

This was quite good made as is! I added a little Italian seasoning to the chicken with the salt, pepper and flour, and although I made it scaled it to one, i minced a whole clove of garlic. (okay, not exactly made as the recipe said). If you added lemon juice, it would be close to chicken piccata! It was easy, and had that rich taste that I think chicken broth brings. Next time i will flour the chicken more, so it browns more, and serve it over rice. And yes, i used more flour than the recipe called for. All in all, i really liked it, and i will make it again for sure!

This is a GREAT recipe! I just whipped it up (it's that easy) to raves from the family! On it's own it is delicious, and the addition of lime juice and some capers made it another kind of special! This recipe could be tweaked with other spices and sides for a plethora of goodness... I'm going to make it with turkey leftovers next week. Thanks! "Try it, you'll like it!"
