2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
1/3 cup chopped onion
4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup chicken broth
4 deli fried chicken pieces, heated


Melt butter in 1-quart saucepan until sizzling; add onion. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 2-3 minutes or until softened.

Stir in flour, thyme and pepper. Reduce heat to medium; stir in chicken broth and half & half. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2-4 minutes or until smooth and bubbly.

Spoon gravy over warm chicken pieces.

Recipe Tip

To make quick work of chopping onions, slice off stem and root ends of onion. Remove and discard peel. Halve onion from top to root end. Place onion half, cut-side down, and cut parallel vertical slices. Holding the vertical slices together evenly cut across slices.

Very creamy and delicious. Would be great if made in a larger portion to make the base of a chowder!
