About this recipe: A delicious chicken dish that requires practically no prep. Pan-fried chicken breasts are seasoned with garlic granules, onion powder and salt.
Highly recommened for the busy mom/dad! What's better than a fast, easy to cook nutritious meal that the whole family loves?! I made this for the first time tonight, and my husband and kids loved it and asked when I will be making it again. I also made a gravey using the chicken bits in the pan and it turned out delicious (I think the gravey made the meal). Topped the chicken and mashed potatoes with it and served with a side of steamed vegies. Perfect fast, easy, delicious, healthy dinner for those nights when you get home from after school sports, etc. Forget the run to McDonalds on the way home from baseball!***UPDATE***I still make this once a week and when my kids ask what's for dinner and I tell them this, they get very excited! Be sure to try it with the gravey...After the chicken is done cooking add 3T butter and melt it, then add 3T flour and use a spatula or whisk to stir the flour and scrape up the chicken bits, the darker the rue the better, then whisk in about a cup and a half of chicken stock, more or less depending on how thick you like it. YUM! - 22 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Love the recipe! Here's a way to keep the flavor, but lose the saltiness that many reviewers mentioned. Just dice about half an onion, and use fresh chopped garlic (to your taste). That way the only salt product is the seasoning salt. I also added some fresh ground black pepper. Be careful with the cooking time if you use fresh onion and garlic. I cook mine until it all browns up nicely (which makes a nice sauce in the pan...great, if serving with rice), but you need to make sure the chicken is cooked through, esp. if some of the breasts are very thick. Even with these minor changes...it is still quick, easy, and a great recipe! - 25 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe was wonderful. It smelled so good cooking, I could hardly wait to taste it. I did alter the recipe a little. I used lots of fresh garlic, and rubbed all the powdered seasonings on the chicken. I let the butter melt in some olive oil and added the garlic. After the chicken browned a little, I poured in a can of chicken broth let it simmer for a few until I stirred in 1/4 cup of flour. It made a great sauce! I served It over egg noodles. Loved every bit of it. - 12 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
