Why this easy dinner recipe works?
Since I know that everyone is super busy and that trying to figure out what to make for dinner can sometimes be a stressful situation, especially when the time is limited.
By taking advantage of leftover cooked chicken, or store-bought rotisserie chicken, this chicken comfort food is super easy, and extra quick, so even a novice cook can have this delicious meal on the dinner table in 15 minutes or less.
The easy instructions;
- Cook 4 potatoes in a microwave oven until cooked through (not shown).
- Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan.
- Add all-purpose flour to the melted butter.
- Stir and cook the roux (butter and flour mixture) for one minute over medium heat.
- Add the chicken broth and stir (or whisk) to combine.
- Cook and stir occasionally until the sauce is lump free and thickened.
- Add the chicken and thawed vegetables to the thickened sauce.
- Stir in the seasonings and vinegar.
- Heat through.
- Spoon the sauce and chicken over the opened, baked potatoes.
- Serve immediately.
