Cast Iron Skillet Baked Herb Chicken with Gravy Recipe

I created this recipe because I was cooking chili for my hubby; and I wanted a meal that would be just as tasty, since I can’t have chili.  Boy, did I succeed!

I used chicken legs for my dish.  But, you can use whatever pieces you like.  I pretty much think that any chicken, with gravy, tastes amazing!  I thought my gravy days were behind me.  However, a southern lady like me, simply cannot deal without gravy for too long.

This recipe is AIP Paleo! Feel free to indulge!

Salt to taste

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Rinse chicken pieces and thoroughly dry.  Sprinkle chicken with salt, on all sides.  Set large cast iron skillet on burner with medium/high heat.  Once skillet is hot, place chicken in skillet.  Brown chicken on all sides. This should only take a few minutes. Turn off burner. Add onion slices to skillet.  Add chicken broth, garlic, and apple cider vinegar to skillet.

Once chicken has reached desired temperature, add arrowroot powder and stir into broth.  Leave in oven for an additional 10 minutes.  Remove from oven. Stir. Let sit for 5 minutes.  Serve.  Spoon gravy and onions onto chicken.  Enjoy!

Cook time: 1hour to 1 hour 20 minutes

I served my chicken with cauliflower mash. It tasted like a good, old fashioned southern dinner. C’est Bon!

I first made this fried “rice” to serve with these delicious Garlic Chicken Livers.  It turned out so good, I now make as a meal on it’s own. Plus, it’s AIP Paleo which makes it even better.

3 Green Onions, chopped, green and white

Sea Salt to taste

Brown bacon pieces in a medium skillet on medium/low heat.  As bacon is browning, rice raw cauliflower in food processor by pulsing until it has a rice-like consistency.  Add green onion to skillet when bacon is 75% browned.  Brown for 1 minute.  Reduce heat.  Add cauliflower rice, Coconut Aminos, and chicken broth to skillet. Stir well, to be sure to mix in all little brown bits from skillet.  Saute until all liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes.  Give it a good stir to mix.  Salt to taste.  Remove from heat.  Serve immediately.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20-25 minutes

Serves 4 (or 2 hungry people, or 1 very hungry person)

This is such an easy recipe.  Sometimes, I make a big bowl of it, and just sit and eat the whole thing.  And, if you like chicken liver, be sure to check out the link above.  These livers are the most delicious I’ve ever eaten.  The only change I made, was to add the garlic to the skillet for about a minute before serving.  I’m not a fan of raw garlic.  But, if you are, by all means, go for it.

Enjoy!  Let me know how you like it!
