Roast Chicken Breasts With Parsley Pan Gravy

"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!"

    This was as suggested, a quick and easy week night meal. I had problems with the gravy not thickening to my liking, even though I doubled the recipe but didn't quite double the broth. I will have to play around with the recipe and next time plan on cooking it on a convection setting to crisp it up even more.

    Served this chicken with rice and fresh steamed new carrots. The sauce was great over the rice. Will serve this again for guests.

    So easy & light & very flavorful. We really enjoyed this. I doubled the sauce(always do) & I am using the little bit that is left on pasta for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for posting, Scoutie!

    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!!!
