One-Pan Chicken with Gravy Recipe

Fall is most certainly in the air here in Southern Ontario and I am here resentfully wearing socks. I will try not to complain to you all about that but I make no promises. With Autumn comes the changing of the colour of the leaves, warmer clothing, furnaces are being turned on and life becomes more hectic in general around here as the kids activities start up.

More and more, I’m looking for very simple recipes that are still delicious and I may have just hit the ball out of the park with this One-Pan Chicken with gravy recipe. When I began playing with this one I was in the mood for a roasted chicken flavour but also wanted to satisfy my comfort-food need with gravy. This baby has both a pan roasted chicken, gravy and garlic…like 20 cloves of garlic to set your taste buds alight!

I’m told one of the first skills taught at culinary school is how to pan roast a chicken…well apparently I need to go to school because as you can see the skins on my chicken thighs pulled away. I think it was because I didn’t allow the oil to get hot enough and this pan has a textured bottom. Next time I’ll use a flat-surfaced pan and be more patient to achieve that perfectly roasted look.

This is a flavour-filled dish that is perfect for family-style entertaining. When it arrives at the table one is inclined to GASP at the beauty and the amazing aroma which accompanies it.

  1. In the picture it looks like you used thyme, but its not called for in the recipe. So you recommend using thyme? Thanks

      1. I just made this tonight and this is nothing but garlic chicken… This is way to much garlic…. If you don’t like garlic as much as other people I would not recommend using that much garlic

  2. I have 2 questions, can I use cornstarch instead of flour to make this gluten free and do you remove the garlic before serving? Thank You, Ann

  3. I found that the gravy was very oily. Is there a way to reduce the amount of oil that lies on top of the gravy? Can you omit the oil and just cook the chicken in the butter?

  4. I haven`t had this in years. I used to live with a real, down home girl from Texas that made this for me a couple times a week. I just loved it!

  5. Did you use anything extra for seasoning besides what is said? Looks like in the pic you have extra seasoning, but only said to use salt and pepper?

  6. Very delicious, and we love garlic! The gravy didn’t get as thick as I wanted so I added some xanthan gum. I served this over mashed potatoes. I like the idea of broiling the chicken at the end to ensure a crispy skin. Will try that next time – definitely a keeper. The gravy was delish!!
