I remember my mom making this with pork on rare occasions and using it to smother tacos. But there are way more applications for this spicy, meaty gravy than just over a tortilla. You could put it on top of burgers, or add some white beans and have some pretty good chili. And I'll admit while making it, it was pretty good just tasting it on crackers.

Even though mom always called it a gravy, it is in reality way more thick and chunky than any gravy I've ever seen. But for the lack of knowing what else to call it, I'll stick to her word. What does it really matter what it's called, after all, as long as it tastes good!

Step 1: What You Need

This recipe needs:

2 Chicken breasts
4 1/2 cups of water
1/2 cup dried onion (Not Onion powder! If you don't have dried onion, use about a cup of chopped fresh onion, and remove 1/2 cup of water)
2 chicken bullion cubes
1 Jar Canned Green Chilies (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 1/2 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp sage
1 tsp chili powder
2 Tbs flour
4 Tbs water
Salt to taste
1 tsp lemon juice

Step 3: Shred the Chicken

Take the chicken out of the water and place in a heat proof baking dish (don't throw away the water!). Take two forks and shred the chicken into little pieces. As it continues to cook later it will break down some more as well.

Return it all to the pot of water and continue cooking.

Step 4: Add the Spices

Add the green chilies, (after pouring them in I put a few Tbs of water in the jar and swirled it around to get every bit out) garlic, pepper, sage, paprika, and chili powder.

Step 5: Make a Slurry

Add the flour and 4 tablespoons of water into the chili jar. Shake until everything is combined and no longer lumpy. Mix this into the gravy.
This sounds so fantastic!

I am sharing this with my sister and someday when I get a chance I will try making it myself. Instructables have been keeping us jumping. It looks simple enough to make very often. When I make it I will post a picture and give you feed back. Thanks for sharing all your hard work.
