Crock Pot Chicken and Gravy
What can beat Crock Pot Chicken and Gravy? Made in a crock pot makes this dish simple to pull together and you can just forget about it for the day, and gravy is a wonderful comfort food that your family and you can indulge in with this special dish.
If you have not yet bought or received your first crock pot definitely put it on your birthday wish list. A crock pot is an energy efficient and great way to cook many different meals. The slow cook method means your fish, meat, chicken and other dishes always come out moist and tender, and it's practically impossible to burn anything in a crock pot.
The secret to making this dish super creamy is in the addition of sour cream. You add sour cream at the very end, just before you serve the dish, to give the dish a slightly tangy finish and thicken the sauce. Another secret to making this dish easy to make and serve is to use chicken breasts. Just pop them in to the crock pot whole, without cutting them. Once they are cooked, you can just pull them apart with a fork, stir in the sour cream and serve. This dish is great whether you choose to eat it with rice, potatoes or noodles.
Using chicken without the skin really drops the fat and calories, but did you know that chicken is also a good source of potassium and calcium in addition to protein? An average sized chicken breast is probably less than about 130 calories. If you are watching your weight, it takes about 30 minutes to walk off that many calories. Today you can also buy free range chicken, which many people prefer. Often it's available right in the grocery freezer or even fresh from the meat counter.
