  • 1 lb chicken breasts
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp each of salt, pepper, oregano, and thyme
  • 1 tsp each of paprika, onion powder, garlic powder

Prep Chicken and Gravy

To get started, gather all the ingredients you’ll need to make this delicious dish. Measure out all the seasonings and cut the chicken breasts in half to make them thinner. This will help the chicken cook quickly. Season the chicken with a sprinkle of salt, pepper, and garlic powder on both sides.

Make Chicken and Gravy

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and melt the butter. Add the flour and stir continuously until the flour and butter are well combined and start to thicken. Let this cook for a few minutes while stirring. Next, pour in the chicken broth and stir well.

Season the broth with salt, pepper, oregano, thyme, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder. Stir everything together and once it starts to bubble, add the chicken to the skillet. Use a spoon to push the chicken down into the skillet and cover it with the flavorful gravy. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover the skillet with a lid, and let it cook for about 12-15 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
