Recipe Category: Chicken & Turkey
Submitted By: Liz - Montgomery, AL
Ingredients: 4 boneless chicken breast halves
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
4 green onions, sliced
Dash Cajun or Creole seasoning
1 1/2 cups chicken broth, divided
1 package (2-cup size, about 2.75 oz) country gravy mix, plain or peppered (or use 2 smaller 1-oz packets)
1/2 cup half-and-half or milk
Directions: Wash chicken and pat dry. Put chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap or in a food storage bag and gently pound to thin evenly. Sprinkle the chicken breasts lightly with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook for about 2 1/2 minutes on each side, until nicely browned.
Stir in the green onions and seasoning and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute longer. Add 1 cup of the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. In a cup, whisk the gravy mix with the remaining 1/2 cup chicken broth; stir into the simmering mixture until smooth. Add half-and-half or milk and stir until hot and well blended.
Serves 4.
Notes: Country gravy mix makes this meal super-easy to prepare, and green onions and seasonings give it a boost of flavor. Serve this chicken with your favorite vegetables, along with rice or potatoes. The gravy would also be good with grilled or broiled chicken.
