This delicious chicken recipe includes a simple exercise in pan gravy perfection. If I only had one day to teach someone how to cook, you better believe this archetypal sauce recipe would be one of the first things I'd demonstrate.

Ingredients

  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup chicken broth

  • 2 tablespoons minced green onions

  • ½ teaspoon chipotle chile powder, or more to taste

Directions

  1. Place chicken breast halves between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/2-inch. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet on high heat until it begins to shimmer, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium; cook chicken breasts until browned and no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer cooked chicken to a warm plate and loosely cover with aluminum foil.

  3. Melt butter in the skillet; stir in flour and cook for about 2 minutes. Stir in chicken broth, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan; cook and stir until gravy begins to simmer and thicken, 1 to 2 minutes.

  4. Stir in green onions and chipotle chile powder.

  5. Return chicken breasts to the skillet and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

Cook's Note:

May substitute chicken stock for chicken broth. For thinner gravy, add more broth or stock.
