Easy gravy for pan-cooked chicken breasts

[ Edited ]

Among the many recipes I've saved  over the years is this one from Taste of Home Test Kitchen.




4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 oz. each)

1/2 teaspoon salt,  divided

1/4 teaspoon pepper, divided

2 tablespoons butter

4 teaspoons honey mustard

1 tablespoon milk

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

1/2 cup sour cream


Rub chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.


In large skillet over medium heat, cook chicken in butter 6-8 minutes each side or until no longer pink.  Remove and keep warm.


In same skillet, combine mustard, milk, basil, parsley and remaining salt & pepper.


Cook and stir over low heat until heated through. 


Remove from heat, stir in sour cream  Serve with or over the chicken.


Hint from Taste of Home:  You can flatten chicken breasts to shave minutes off of cooking, but you'll need a very large skillet to cook all four at once.
