Alabama Chicken

Last night we had this chicken!  It was delicious! It says to serve over rice which we did but we thought you could serve over pasta too!  Josh and I were talking about when you make a home made sauce that normally you don't get enough flavor like those store bought kinds, but this was not the case here!! We all loved it and for the first time ever Jackson ate the rice instead of spitting rice back out at me!  I would say it was a huge success! Leftovers for dinner tonight :)

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cups chicken broth, low-sodium
  • 1 cup half and half, fat free
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Hot cooked rice
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Coat chicken with mixture of flour, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  3. Brown in 2 Tbsp olive oil. Set in a baking dish.
