Auto Parts Chicken

Auto Parts Chicken


An easy all-in-one skillet dish. My children named it as a joke from a well known local ad on the TV! If desired, serve with good bread and a salad.

  1. In a large skillet, heat the butter/margarine and oil over medium heat. Lightly brown the chicken breast halves. Add the garlic, leek and onion and saute until they begin to soften. Add the potatoes and carrots, then add chicken broth, water, bay leaf, pepper and parsley. Simmer all together for 30 minutes or until vegetables are soft.
  2. Combine 2 tablespoons each flour and water and mix together (done easily if you shake together in a jar). Turn up heat under skillet and add flour/water mixture to thicken the juices.

This was ok. Lacked flavor and ended up on the mushy side. I won't make it again.


This recipe seemed a little plain so about 10 minutes before it was done, I added a bag of frozen mixed vegetables. It thickened by itself and no flour was needed. This turned out great and is one of my new favorites.


I really liked this recipe because it was a whole meal in one skillet. Next time I make it I will add the carrots early because they were still slightly undone eventhough the potatoes were REALLY done. It would also be a good idea to remove the chicken and the vegetables before adding the flour water mixture to make the gravy. My potatoes got really mushy when I was mixing in the flour and water.
