Juicy, flavorful and easy "baked chicken and gravy" dinner. As a mother of 3, sometimes you need a quick fix for dinner. This is definitely that, but still delicious. Use any seasoning you like or just add salt and pepper. My favorite is seasoning salt or chicken and rib seasoning. Don't waste the drippings! Turn that into a scrumptious gravy to take your chicken dinner to the next level. I like to add 3/4 of a cup of water to the dish, preferably the water used to boil your potatoes in. (TIP -To get the most flavor out of your potatoes, add some chicken stock powder to the water.) I cook my potatoes first then whip them up with some butter, 1 egg and milk, then bake them in the oven with the chicken. The result is supper fluffy and even more delicious potatoes, plus you can use the cooking water. Now you have even more flavor to add to your chicken. My two oldest kids love chicken. having said that, they think almost all meat is chicken. I hope you enjoy this recipe.


- To lock in more juices, season your chicken and sear it in a hot frying pan on both sides prior to putting in the oven (even better an oven safe pan). If you are in a hurry, that's okay, just put them in the oven seasoned and cover.

- Optional - For the last 2 minutes of cooking, remove the foil and broil to crisp the tops.

- Add approximately 3/4 cup potato water (or water) to the dish. Just enough to cover the bottom of the dish with water. (Add more if needed)

- Cover with foil and bake for 20 to 25 min until juices run clear. For the last 2 minutes of cooking remove the foil and broil to crisp the tops.

- Remove from oven and let rest, covering with foil while you prepare the gravy.

- Pour the drippings into a pot and heat to a boil.

- Make a SLURRY, 1:1 ratio water and corn starch. Pour the slurry into the boiling gravy stirring constantly until thickened.
