Smothered Chicken Southern Style

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Butter
  • 1 Whole Chicken, Cut Into Pieces
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 3/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  • 3 Cups Chopped Yellow Onions
  • 1 Cup Chopped Celery
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 2 Cups Chopped Carrots
  • 4 Cups Chicken Broth
  • 4 Tablespoons All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken pieces with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Dredge in 3/4 cup flour, place in the skillet, and brown on all sides. Set chicken aside, and drain skillet, reserving about 1 tablespoon butter.
  2. Reduce skillet heat to medium-low, and stir in onions, celery, garlic, and carrots. Cook 5 minutes, until tender. Stir in the flour, and cook 5 minutes more. Pour in the chicken broth, season with cayenne pepper, and remaining salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, and reduce heat to low.
  3. Return chicken to the skillet, cover, and continue cooking 30 minutes, until chicken juices run clear and gravy has thickened. Serve over rice pilaf, with green beans.
