I guess I’m on a chicken kick! lol I actually cooked this last week. I’m just now getting around to posting it.
This is my simple version of a smothered fried chicken. You could do this with gravy and onions if you like. I had a can of Cream of Chicken, and just thought I’d throw this together. So here we go…
Prep Time: 15-20 Minutes
Cook Time: 30-45 Minutes
Serving Size: 4-6 People
4-5 Pieces of Chicken (I had Quarter Legs, and just cut them up)
1 Can of Cream of Chicken
1 Cup of Milk (or just fill the Cream of Chicken can with milk)
Flour for dredging
Oil for frying
Heat a large pan or skillet on medium heat. Add in enough oil to cover bottom of pan. We do not want to cook the chicken. You just want to fry it enough to get brown on both sides. I would say cook chicken about 2-3 minutes on both sides. You just want a nice golden brown color.
In the same pan. Drain oil. You can leave the crispy bits that were in the bottom of the pan. Throw a little bit of water to get the bits up. Scrape the bottom of the pan a bit. Open your can of Cream of Chicken. Throw that in there. Take the empty Cream of Chicken can, and pour in milk all the way to the top. Then add that to your pan. Mix well. I used a whisk to mix the two. Keep your stove on medium heat.
Once your mixture is well incorporated. Add your chicken back into the pan. Get a spoon, and start spooning Cream of Chicken over all of the pieces. Be sure to coat them good. You can turn your heat down to medium low. Cover. Let simmer for 30-45 minutes. Check it every so often and continue to spoon sauce on. You can also turn the pieces over and then continue to cook.
This is what you will get once it’s done. The sauce started off looking bright yellow! lol But, after it cooked down a while this is how it looked. You can also add a bit of salt and pepper to taste, if it needs it. Yum Yum!
