Dinner Is Served (3)
Can gravy be light & healthy? Sure! I tried out a new recipe the other day. The heavy version called for all the butter and fat you could get into one pan. I mixed it up some and came up with this delicious take. The only change I will make next time I make it is to try it with boneless skinless chicken breasts.
Mushroom & Scallion Chicken with Brown Rice & Broccoli
The gravy was made with the chicken drippings, chicken stock, low fat plain yogurt, mushrooms, seasonings and some green scallions…and before you ask-YES, it did taste GOOD!
This is what the chicken looked like while browning…I used 2-3 tbsp’s of flower to coat the chicken before browning in about 1 tbsp olive oil & 1 tbsp butter. Also, this cast iron skillet is my other favorite cooking item! My thoughtful Grandma got it for me when I got my first apartment back when I was 17 years old! I hope this skillet stands the test of time so I can pass it down to own daughter one day (sound good Britt?) Cool.
Goodness…I LOVE COOKING! It takes a backseat to photography for sure, but don’t be surprised if one day I have a new blog and it’s focus is on cooking…because it is my 2nd love.
