I saw Carla Hall’s smothered chicken recipe on “The Chew” recently and thought it looked tasty! I love me some comfort food! MmmMmm!
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts (I always use chicken tenders)
salt and pepper, to taste
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 lemon, for the lemon zest (optional)
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup lactose free milk
1 box frozen peas
1 carrot, sliced into coins
1 box frozen pearl onions
2 tablespoons butter substitute (I prefer Benecol)
1 tablespoon flour
Saute chicken in olive oil. Add onions and season with salt & pepper. Remove chicken. Keep cooking onions until tender. Add stock, milk and flour. Once stock and milk are hot, add lemon zest, then add chicken back and cook until done. While chicken is cooking, steam carrots until tender. When carrots tender, add carrots, peas, & pearl onions to chicken and sauce. Mix together and heat for several minutes. Serve it up with some mashed potatoes!
Don’t forget to add love, it makes all the difference!
