Easy Chicken and Gravy

Chicken and Gravy is easy to prepare and screams "comfort food." Its a great dinner idea that can be thrown together in around 30 min for those busy weeknights. There are many ways to prepare at but this is how I do it and in my opinion its packed with flavor! Give it a shot and let me know your opinion in the comments!

Notes

You can sub chicken thighs for breasts if preferred.  You can also use your preferred oil to cook the chicken in as well as for your roux.  I personally just love the flavor bacon grease adds.  Salt to taste as gravy is thickening but it may not need any.  The "Fireshire" W sauce is optional,  any worcestershire sauce will work!

    I love this! Thank you! I’m always trying new recipes and 9 times out of 10 the result is disappointing. However you have a gift of delivering what you say. Can’t wait to try your potato and cheese soup!
