CHICKEN & GRAVY (MEALS IN JARS)

Are you ever in hurry and think you don’t have the time to fix a home cooked meal? Or maybe you are just too tired to come home and stand over the stove for an hour or more?

 
This is another recipe in the meals in a jar series. While it takes a while to can this, it is totally worth the time and effort. If you have a couple of hours to spare, consider adding this to your pantry shelves.
 
INGREDIENTS (FOR 4 PINT JARS)
2 pounds chicken breast, cut into 2 inch cubes
1 cup celery
1 cup onion
1 cup potatoes, peeled and diced 
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
4 tablespoons dry white wine
chicken broth, approximately 1 quart
 
Divide all the ingredients into 4 pint jars.
 
 
 
 
 
Fill with chicken broth to a one inch headspace. Process in a pressure canner for 1 hour 15 minutes at the PSI per your sea level. 
 
DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS UNTIL YOU HAVE RESEARCHED CANNING PRACTICES AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR PRESSURE CANNER. 
 
To serve: Empty contents into a sauce pan, add 1 tablespoon flour per pint, whisking until smooth. Heat for approximately 10 minutes. Serve over rice, biscuits (my favorite), greens…use your imagination! 
 
 
 
 
Enjoy!
