Pan Fried Chicken with Gravy is such a classic dish.  It’s easy to make, tasty, and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients.  Some might call it a pantry meal because you probably have most ingredients on hand already.  With this recipe, you’ll find tender, juicy chicken that’s topped with a very basic (but very creamy and flavorful) gravy.

The recipe can be found here.

Start by seasoning both sides of the chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  I’m partial to boneless skinless chicken but you can use thighs, or another cut if you prefer.  Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the chicken and cook on each side for 4-5 minutes then transfer to a plate.  The chicken will NOT be cooked through at this point but will continue to cook in a later step.

Add the butter to the skillet and melt over medium high heat.  Add the flour, whisk to combine, and cook for about 1 more minute.  Slowly add the chicken broth (while whisking) and continue to whisk until well combined with no lumps.  Add the Italian seasoning and onion powder and whisk to combine.  This is the start of the gravy.

Reduce the heat to low then add the chicken back to the skillet (along with any juices from the plate) and continue to cook for about 4-5 minutes per side or until cooked through.  The internal temperature should be 165 degrees F.  Keep the heat on low to thicken the gravy while the chicken cooks.  You can stir the gravy every so often.

Once the chicken is cooked through, transfer to serving plates.  Spoon some of the gravy over the top and garnish with fresh chopped parsley.  Serve with mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, or both!  Enjoy!

This recipe is a hit at our house.  I love the simplicity of the dish and the limited ingredients required and know I will be eating a very delicious meal.  It’s great for any time of year as well because it’s light and not too filling.

You can always adjust the seasoning before serving and add more salt, pepper, etc. if needed.  Or you can serve and have everyone add their own, to taste.  Leftovers hold up quite well with this recipe and make a great lunch the next day.

Happy Cooking!
