Family Chicken Recipe

"MY MOTHER-IN-LAW said she devised this recipe when her children were growing up and schedules were hectic. It was a favorite Sunday dish because it could be cooking while the family was at church. When they came home, it didn't take long to finish the preparations and put dinner on the table."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 2 hours YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 pounds), cut up
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 cups chicken broth

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, sage, basil and seasoned salt, reserving 1/4 cup. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat. In a large skillet, brown chicken in butter on all sides.
  • 2. Transfer chicken to a 5-qt. slow cooker. Add the reserved flour mixture to the skillet; stir until smooth. When mixture begins to bubble, stir in chicken broth and bring to a boil; boil for 1 minute. Pour over chicken. Cover and cook on high for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until chicken juices run clear. Yield: 4 servings.
