From Betty's Soul Food Collection... Ding, ding, ding—the health-o-meter declares our improved and lighter Smothered Chicken and Gravy recipe a winner, with its flavor boost coming from spices instead of fat.
Makeover recipes are comfort-food favorites that have been remixed with less fat and sugar so they're healthier.
To save time, cut up the vegetables and chicken, and place the flour with seasonings in a resealable food-storage plastic bag ahead of time so the ingredients are ready. When it's time to cook, just toss the chicken in the flour mixture and cook everything as directed.
The rice can be cooked up to 24 hours in advance. Cover and refrigerate, then reheat in the microwave just before serving. There will be one less pan to wash when dinner is done!
