Baked Chicken with Creamy Herb Sauce (TNT)
Baked Chicken with Herbs
1 frying chicken, cut up, or desired pieces (I just use skinless boneless chicken breast)
5 Tbsp butter (or half evoo and half butter)
3 Tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp ea thyme, rosemary, and sage (Alix, you could omit the rosemary if you wanted, but it's not very strong with the other herbs)
2 1/2 c milk
1 Tbsp ea parsley and chives
(All herbs are dried)
Brown chicken in Tbsp evoo or butter. Remove to 1 1/2 qt casserole. Melt remaining butter in skillet and add flour. Add remaining ingredients. Cook until slightly thick, stirring constantly. Pour over chicken and bake, uncovered, at 325 for about 50 minutes (30 for boneless).
Great served with mashed potatoes (they taste great with the extra sauce!).
I've also, after browning, sliced the chicken breasts about 3/4 of the way through lenghtwise and stuffed them with thawed and drained chopped spinach. DH hates spinach (or anything that may possibly have touched spinach!) so I don't do that very often!
