Roast Chicken Breasts With Parsley Pan Gravy

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

GREAT week-night dinner! The chicken is moist and the gravy is to die for, Altho it is great with the poultry seasoning, I LOVE it with Herbes de Provence seasoning. There is enough gravy here for any potatoes you are serving as well...yummm! If needed, I thicken the gravy with a flour/water slurry at the end. Depending on the size of the chicken breasts, you may need to cook either longer or less, I have had to cook them for 60 minutes before, use your judgement. Sometimes I add satueed onions and shrooms to the gravy. Recipe can easily be doubled. This is adapted from Bon Appetit magazine, 2001. Hope you enjoy as much as we do!

Love a clever, pithy and gorgeous dish. And don't I know because my computer's cluttered with tons of bad pictures, but I think this one came out looking pretty good if I say so myself. Made for PRMR. My 1000th review!!!

Roasted with herbes de provence and found this was so easy to make. The gravy was delicious served over buttered noodles. I have another breast half to serve chilled tomorrow with Vicki's Classic Potato Salad. I love these two-fer meals that only require cooking once! Thanks for posting Scoutie! Made for Zwizzle Chicks for ZWT6.

This came out great, delish with mashed potatoes. I used a rotisserie seasoning plus herbes de provence.
