Skillet Chicken Supper

This recipe is a hearty main dish. It's gently spiced with a tasty vegetable medley. Frozen mixed vegetables can be used instead of peas.—Marlene Muckenhirn, Delano, Minnesota

  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 to 4 pounds), cut up
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1-3/4 cups water, divided
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 medium red potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3 large carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 celery ribs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas


  • In a small bowl, combine the flour, garlic powder and pepper. Pour half the flour mixture into a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken, one piece at a time, and shake to coat; set the remaining flour mixture aside.
  • In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil until browned on all sides; drain. Combine 1-1/4 cups water, soy sauce and oregano; pour over chicken. Add vegetables. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 30-40 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Remove chicken and vegetables; keep warm.
  • Combine reserved flour mixture and remaining water until smooth; add to the cooking juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with the chicken and vegetables.

    Made this tonight with some worry about lack of flavor. I was right!! It is missing something because using oregeno does not make the cut in reaching that "irrestible" mark. I did like the technique as it made the chicken incredibly juicy. I will have to play around with more herbs and seasonings to get this dish a 5-star rating.

    I was surprised at how good this's simple, but I just loved the veggies, and especially the little red potatoes, in the sauce. I did cut down the soy sauce to just a fourth of a cup, but it seems like the brand I use from the health food store is pretty strong. I love dishes like this that are all in one skillet....this is one I'll be making frequently!

    Really easy all in one recipe. I did use all chicken breast because we are boneless white meat people. But this had really good flavor.

    I've made this so many times. I do remove the skin before I add it to the seasoned flour. Very good and comforting dish

    This reminds me so much of a dish that my grandmother used to make. Unfortunately, I never got her recipe, but I like to think that this is very close. I could make this once a week and my family would never tire of it.
