    A very simple, yet very tasty weeknight chicken dish. The onion, stock and flour reduces down to make a mild, savory gravy.

    1. 1
      Pound chicken breasts slightly to uniform thickness. Preheat non-stick skillet over medium heat for 3 minutes, then melt 4 tablespoons butter. Sauté the chicken breasts, 2 at a time in the melted butter until browned on both sides. Place browned chicken in a medium-sized sauce pan.
    2. 2
      Add remaining two tablespoons of butter to skillet, and then sauté the onion until soft and brown, about 4 minutes Add onions to chicken in sauce pan.
    3. 3
      Add 5 tablespoons flour to skillet, and sauté about 2 minutes, until slightly browned. Add stock and whisk until smooth. Add salt, pepper and garlic powder, and then pour over chicken in sauce pan. Add ranch dressing and stir.
    4. 4
      Bring mixture to boil in sauce pan, then cover and simmer over medium low for 30 minutes.
    5. 5
      I serve with homemade biscuits to mop the gravy, along with mashed potatoes, or wild rice.

      I found the recipe poorly written.. How are you supposed to cook the onion? Sliced, diced or chopped? All you said was "1 large onion" and then to cook "the onion". Little details like "chopped, diced or sliced" are needed. I am still in process of cooking the dish, so I don't know how it will taste. I agree with Teddy's Mommy. A little more chicken stock would help the consistency of the gravy.

      This was pretty good! I had to add a bit more chicken stock to make the gravy the right consistency, and the ranch dressing was a little strange for us though. Next time I think I'll omit the dressing. My chicken shredded while I was stirring the gravy, I am not sure that's supposed to happen but it worked out good since that meant there was no cutting anything up. I served it over biscuits. Mine didn't end up very pretty, but I'll post a picture soon. Made for Fall PAC 2007.

      This was good but not something my family would eat on a regular basis. It was quick and easy to make for a weeknight meal. Made for Fall PAC 2007.
