Oven Baked Chicken With Herbs

Saturday, December 28, 2013

Hello Sparkfamily! There are so many yummy ways that you can fix chicken and here is an awesome recipe just for you!


3 1/2 lb fryer chicken
2 tbsp. butter
3 tbsp. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion, thinly sliced
3 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. thyme
a good pinch of rosemary
1/2 tsp. ground sage
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
1 tbsp. fresh chives, chopped
garlic powder (for sprinkling)
Preheat oven to 325F. Wash chicken under cold running water inside
and out; pat dry.


In a large skillet, melt together butter and oil. Saute onion and garlic for 2
minutes, then brown the chicken on all sides. Remove the chicken to a
large casserole.
Stir flour into butter mixture in skillet. Add remaining ingredients, using
only half of the salt and pepper in the sauce. Cook until somewhat
thickened, stirring constantly. Pour over chicken. Season the chicken with
remaining salt and pepper and a sprinkle of garlic powder.
Bake in preheated 325F degree oven for 50 minutes, or until the chicken
is tender and the breast reaches slightly less than 160F (the temperature
will continue to climb after the chicken is removed from oven).
Whole baby potatoes and baby carrots (or quartered potatoes and
carrots) may be arranged around the outside of the chicken and baked at
the same time as the chicken, if desired. Enjoy!

I hope that everyone is looking forward to a HEALTHY 2014! emoticon Hugs, Rose:)
