This smothered chicken and gravy recipe by Cooking With TK on YouTube is a homemade southern dinner that is made from scratch. This is an old school southern chicken and gravy recipe that I’d love to make. I would serve this with a side of cornbread too so I can dip in the gravy. Also, I love gravy with rice so I would smother the gravy and chicken over a bed of rice and it would make it into such a filling dinner meal.



  • 1 chicken cut up with or without bones
  • All-purpose flour or Self-rising flour
  • One whole onion chopped
  • One bell pepper chopped
  • Chicken broth
  • Vegetable oil for frying chicken
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Creole seasoning, optional
  • complete seasoning


First, season the chicken and flour to your liking using the seasonings above in the ingredients list. Heat the cooking oil in a pan at 350F. Fill the pan to about 1 inch of oil to fry the chicken. Then coat the chicken with flour. Fry the chicken on each side for 3-4 minutes for up to 16 minutes. Repeat until all the chicken is fried. Use the pan drippings for the gravy.
