Chicken cooked to perfection is smothered in delicious gravy. This recipe is ideal for busy weekends or working days and when you need some comfort food. The recipe is inspired by Southern cuisine and is bursting in flavors. The chicken is seasoned with some seriously good spice mix, while the gravy is made with onions, chicken stock, and heavy cream. You can serve this alone, but it pairs wonderfully with rice, or potato wedges. Of course you can play with the flavors, and try out some other spice mix, but this one is a WIN. This is a quick and comforting diner or lunch that requires so little of your active time. The oven will do the rest.
