Garlic Chicken with Gravy

So I bought a nice big pack of chicken at the store today. I used half to make chicken Katsu for later in the week but made a new garlic chicken recipe tonight. I made mashed potatoes to go with it, which this time I remembered to cut them up before I stuck them in the boiling water because A) whenever I don’t they don’t soften as quickly B) They don’t fit nicely under the potato masher. I started that before I did all my preparations for the chicken. I cut and seasoned the chicken while the butter melted in the pan. I cooked all of the chicken and the potatoes still weren’t done. Isn’t that the way it goes? One is always done before the other.
But that’s cool, it gave me time to do the gravy. I’m actually not huge on gravy but this gravy is so yummy. I was eating it plain for a little while. I was tasting as I go to make sure it was okay… I never realized it would be this easy to make. So I combined everything in the pan and set it to a low simmer. Finally the potatoes were done, so I took care of them and every once in a while stirred the gravy which thickened up really nicely. And basically that was my dinner tonight. Followed up by S’more Ben And Jerry’s.
