- 4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
- 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 large carrot, chopped
- 2 stalks of celery, chopped
- 1 bay leaf
- 3 cups of chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons of flour
- Salt and pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook until they are golden brown on both sides. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside. Add the onion, carrot, celery, and bay leaf to the skillet and cook until vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Whisk together the flour with 1/4 cup of cold water until smooth. Add to the skillet and stir until thickened, about 3 minutes. Return the chicken to the skillet and simmer for another 10 minutes or until cooked through.
Serve hot with mashed potatoes or rice.
