Sunday Dinner: Chicken Gravy
1 pound chicken
3 cups chicken or turkey gravy
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 cup carrot finely chopped
1 celery stock finely chopped
8 cups mashed potatoes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder & thyme to taste. Cover with tin foil & bake for 20 minutes, or until cooked all the way through. Meanwhile, in medium pot boil the carrots & celery until carrots are fork tender. Make mashed potatoes while chicken is cooking. (If making homemade mashed potatoes get water boiling before preparing the chicken.)
Remove chicken from oven & allow to cool slightly. While chicken is cooling in large pot heat up the gravy until heated through (I use dry gravy mix, but the jarred/canned stuff works great too). Drain carrots & celery and add to the gravy. Add parsley. Pull apart or cut chicken into bite size pieces & add to the gravy. Stir it all up & serve over warm mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
*This makes quite a bit of food. Serves about 8 people.
