This recipe came about as I needed to satisfy a craving for fried chicken, gravy, and mashed potatoes. I was not able to stand at the stove and cook, so I found another alternative:
Baked Chicken and Gravy
- 3 lb. chicken parts, or use all breasts if you prefer
- 1/2 to 3/4 c. all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
- 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
- 1/2 c. butter
- 1/2 c. flour
- 4 c. water
- 4 tsp. chicken bouillon granules or 4 bouillon cubes, crushed
- 1 tsp. salt
Mix flour, salt, seasoned salt, and pepper. Coat chicken pieces in flour mixture and brown in pan in melted butter or oil until browned on both sides (meat does not have to be cooked through. Transfer to baking dish.
Make gravy by melting butter, then adding flour. Add 4 c. water slowly, whisking constantly to remove lumps. Bring to a boil (mixture should thicken slightly.) Add chicken bouillon and salt. Stir until mixed well. Pour over chicken.
Bake in preheated 350°F oven for 1 1/2 hours until chicken juices run clear.
