Tonight's dinner mission was to have some good ole comfort food - shredded chicken w/homemade gravy over mashed potatoes with southern fried corn and green beans.  Doesn't get much better than this.  I got this idea from my friend, Julie, who told me she was going to make this one night last week and I thought man that sounds good.  After a little explanation I knew what to do and decided to give it a go myself.  This was a big hit at our house last night (Thanks Jules!).

Here's what you'll need

Shredded chicken w/homemade gravy
2 large chicken breasts
2 14.5 oz cans reduced fat/low sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning (optional)


Place chicken broth and chicken breast in large stock pot.  Bring to a boil and simmer for an hour until chicken is cooked thoroughly. 


Once chicken once it is cooked, shred and set aside.  Reserve stock to make gravy.


In a small bowl, combine water and flour.


Whisk together until smooth and no lumps have formed.


Add flour mixture to chicken broth.  Season with salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning.  Bring to boil and simmer until gravy is thickened.


Top mashed potatoes with chicken and pour gravy on top.  Serve with your favorite side dishes.  Last night we had green beans and southern fried corn (below).

This was disgusting. I just made this today and it tasted like pure flour and goo. I've made rue's before with milk but never just water. It completely ruined my lunch when I was having 3 family members over. We were all very disappointed.

If you made it without milk and it turned out bad, you did something wrong. I make most if my dishes dairy free and they are amazing. I suggest more practice in the kitchen, or turn it over to someone with more cooking experience.

Thanks for the recipe! It was yummy! I did make a few changes: I toasted the flour, added 1/4 cup butter, used milk, and I used one carton broth with two cooked chicken breasts. Ok, I changed it a lot, but your proportions are perfect for just the right sauce!!
