Poultry Seasoning

Sometimes it’s empowering to season things on your own instead of relying on pre-made mixes.  Also, many mixes use additives for anti-caking purposes.  Try your own poultry seasoning at home and see what you prefer.

  • 1 tsps – Sage
  • ¾ tsps – Thyme
  • ½ tsp – Ground rosemary

Chicken Breasts with Gravy

INGREDIENTS:

  • ¼ cup cooking oil (olive, etc.)
  • 3 lb package thawed chicken breast
  • Poultry seasoning (above)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup cold water

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Add oil to a large skillet pan and heat on medium.
  2. Add chicken breast and sprinkle ½ of seasoning on top.  Cook for 5 minutes covered, then turn over the breasts with a flipper, coat with remaining seasoning and cook another 5 minutes covered.
  3. Add chicken broth to skillet and cook an additional 15 minutes covered, or until chicken is cooked all the way through (you can check this by slicing one open).  Remove chicken from skillet.
  4. In a separate small bowl or container, mix cold water and cornstarch together.  Pour into skillet and whisk immediately as broth starts to thicken, ensuring an even texture.
  5. Turn the heat down to low and cook gravy an additional 2-5 minutes, until cloudiness disappears.  Stir occasionally.  Serve chicken with gravy and desired side dish such as mashed potatoes or rice.
