Skillet Simmered Chicken

Susan Dahl


Found this recipe on the back of a can of chicken gravy. Have not been able to find again, made from memory. Of course you can make it less fattening by using low fat or non fat Sour Cream and also remove the skin off the chicken after frying. I leave it on when cooking for more flavor. For the first time, I used Extra Virgin Coconut Oil instead of Veg. or Canola, to fry the Chicken and Veg. in.
