“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.”

Original recipe yields 2 servings

Directions

  1. Place chicken breast halves between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/2-inch. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet on high heat until it begins to shimmer, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium; cook chicken breasts until browned and no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer cooked chicken to a warm plate and loosely cover with aluminum foil.
  3. Melt butter in the skillet; stir in flour and cook for about 2 minutes. Stir in chicken broth, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan; cook and stir until gravy begins to simmer and thicken, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in green onions and chipotle chile powder.
  5. Return chicken breasts to the skillet and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

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!

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.
