    Country Chicken Skillet Recipe

    I love one pan quick and easy recipes that are both tasty and made with whole foods. A lot of you have asked me to share more dinner recipes that your whole family will enjoy.

Because I always have chicken on hand, I love to create new and delicious meals. What I love about this recipe is that it comes together in about 30 minutes, it’s made in one pan (fewer dishes to wash), and it’s a complete meal. I hope you give this chicken skillet recipe a try, you will love it! In the coming weeks and months, I will be sharing more easy, healthy and delicious dinners to help you put dinner on the table quickly.

    Country Chicken Skillet

    So many delicious vegetables and perfectly golden brown chicken tenderloins, this recipe is so delicious and has an amazing flavor. It became an instant favorite at our house. Even my 1 1/2-year-old son loved this meal and ate all of his veggies.

    How to Make Country Chicken Skillet with Vegetables

    I have made this recipe several times and it’s best to boil the potatoes while you are cooking the rest of the ingredients as this will speed up the cooking time in the skillet.

    While the potatoes are boiling, you season the chicken tenderloins with salt and pepper and then coat them with gluten-free breadcrumbs. They are pan fried to golden brown and until no longer pink in the center. This creates this delicious crust and when you cut into the chicken it is cooked to perfection!

    Chicken Dinner

    Transfer the chicken to a plate and add the vegetables. You can use whatever vegetables you have in the fridge. You can even use pre-cut vegetables to save you some time with preparation. In addition to potatoes, I used red bell pepper, carrots, mushrooms, sweet peas, onion, and garlic.

    I also made a simple sauce in the pan by adding a little bit of Dijon mustard, coconut cream, and spices. It has such an amazing flavor!

    This meal is quick and easy and you are going to love it.  It will be one that your family will want to make again and again!
