Smothered Chicken

Yay! The weekend is here! My mom is visiting this weekend and the kids are ecstatic about having Grandma here. I'm going to try to make the most of the weekend, so this post is going to be short. Gotta keep up the NaBloPoMo, though! Day 20 and going strong!

This chicken is yummy and so easy to make. It is a great way to dress up a plain chicken breast without having to go out and buy a bunch of ingredients. That is a good thing if you ask me!


Smothered Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tsp season salt
1 tsp black pepper
2/3 cup flour
1/2 cup vegetable oil or olive oil (could use less oil, too!)
1 small onion, sliced
2 cups chicken broth

Season flour with salt and pepper. Coat chicken in flour. Reserve leftover flour.

Heat oil in skillet and add chicken. Brown on each side. Remove from pan and set aside. Add onions to pan and cook for 1 minute. Add leftover flour; stir until onions start to brown. Add broth and bring to a boil.

Add chicken back to pan and simmer 20 minutes, or until gravy is thickened and chicken is cooked through.
