Chicken Breast in Gravy with Rice and Steamed Broccoli & Corn

2 small chicken breast
3 tbsp flour
3 tbsp butter for frying
Coarse ground Garlic Seasoning Salt
1/2 onion sliced
1/4 cup mushrooms
Shot glass of Sherry
1 tbsp flour for gravy
1 cup Broccoli florets
1 cup corn
1 cup rice uncooked

(NOTE: Recipe ingredient sizes will have to be increased according to how many are eating this meal. The recipe accounts for 1 serving, possibly 2.)


Pour 2 cups of water into a small 1qt sauce pan and place on stove. Add a small amount of salt. Bring to boil. Pour rice into the pot of water gently. Don't stir.  Take a bamboo screen and place over top of pot and then place lid over that. (if you do not have a bamboo screen, use a couple of chopsticks to raise the lid just a tiny bit to allow for air to escape from pot.) Bring water back to boil and then turn all the way down to the lowest setting so that it can simmer.

Using a meat mallet gently pound the chicken breast for a few strokes. Season with Coarse ground Garlic Seasoning salt.  Flour both sides of chicken breast.  

Melt butter in small skillet. Place chicken breast in the melted hot butter.  Brown on both sides and remove from pan.  

Add mushrooms and sliced onions. Season with Garlic salt also. (do not use to much) When onions have become translucent and brown, pour a small shot glass of Sherry into the pan and let it deglaze the pan. Simmer for about 2-4 minutes.  Remove from sauce pan. 

Add 1 tbsp of butter and melt.  Sprinkle in 1tbsp flour.  Gently cook till it has browned.  Add 250ML of water slowly allowing it to thicken.  If it becomes to thick add a little more.  Once it has thickened, Return the onion/mushroom mixture back into the gravy. Add the browned chicken breast as well. Let simmer on low for about ten to fifteen minutes. 

While chicken breast are simmering in gravy, check rice.  Gently move a small amount of rice to see if water is gone or nearly gone.  If it is, turn the post off but leave it on the hot eye. Close the lid tightly.

Steam the corn and broccoli.  Season to taste as well as toss in small amount of butter for taste. 

Once the chicken breast gravy has thickened and simmered for a few minutes it is ready to move to place for serving.  Enjoy.
