Grandma's Country Chicken

Grandma's Country Chicken

This tasty chicken recipe is a country classic. Grandma's Country Chicken is made on the stove top with frozen vegetables and a creamy herb sauce. Served over rice or mashed potatoes, it is a hearty meal for the family. It's chicken recipes like these that bring the family running to the table.


  • 1 large onion, sliced thin
  • 1 large clove garlic, sliced
  • 1/2 package frozen mixed vegetables or 1 drained can mixed vegetables
  • 2 large chicken breasts, skin on
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh herbs (thyme, rosemary, bay, each)
  • 1 cup milk or cream, cold
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch


  1. Place chicken in a bowl with lemon juice and oil. Sprinkle well with salt and pepper, and half of the herbs, reserving the other half.
  2. Let marinate for as long as possible, at least while you are preparing the vegetables. Slice all vegetables, while chicken is soaking in the lemon/oil/herb mixture.
  3. Melt butter in deep skillet and heat until very light brown. Take the chicken breasts and toss them in.
  4. Sear them,for one minute on each side. It is very important to leave the skin on for this, because a skinless chicken breast will not be as tender, moist and flavorful.
  5. Remove the skin later if you must, but leave it on for this step. Add the vegetables, and water to cover. Simmer, covered 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes have elapsed, remove cover.
  6. Mix the milk and the cornstarch together well, and slowly add to the chicken while stirring, along with the rest of the reserved herbs.
  7. Simmer for 10 more minutes, or until sauce thickens. Serve over rice if desired.

I'm going to try this recipe tomorrow but am sad because none of the recipes here have nutritional information needed by diabetics.
