An easy to make casserole for busy weeknights! Oven Baked Chicken and Gravy is the ultimate comfort food. Perfect with potatoes or rice.
Over the summer I started a bad habit. Not cooking dinner. We were out and about, in and out at different times every day. I got away from having dinner at a certain time each day and was just happy if I managed some semblance of a meal a few times a week.
I’ve been trying to get back to the basics this season and make dinner a priority. That means having easy meals on hand at all times. This oven baked chicken and gravy is one of those meals that my family loved.
Most often we have boneless skinless chicken breasts in the freezer ready for quick meals. That’s what we used in this recipe because they cook up quick and easy. There are two other options we’ve tried:
We don’t prefer to use skin-on chicken because it doesn’t crisp up. But you can certainly use it if you don’t mind that.
This recipe uses pantry items to make a quick and easy gravy:
**Pro Tip: Buy a block of parmesan cheese and shred it right before sprinkling it on the chicken. The cheese will melt in making the gravy perfectly smooth. If you use canned parmesan cheese, it will not melt in easily.**
Since this casserole already has chicken and gravy, we simply like to serve it alongside rice (or cauliflower rice for low carb), mashed potatoes or my personal favorite, spaghetti squash.
A side of steamed broccoli, roasted cauliflower and dinner rolls complete the meal.
Try one of these chicken dinner ideas.
I found and made this recipe on Pintest a couple of weeks ago and it instantly became one of my husband and son’s absolute favorites! They said that I could make it weekly and never get tired of it. Gonna make it again tonight! Thank you for sharing it! 🥰
