Italian Chicken Skillet

Packing a whole lotta veggies into our dinners makes my heart happy.

As does the fact that my toddlers would, hands down, rather eat veggies than any meat they’ve ever met (aside from hotdogs; those kids LIVE for hotdogs…which I’m not even sure count as ‘meat’….yuck!).

So when I stumbled upon this recipe from Clean Food Crush I knew it was just what we needed in our weekly grind.

I did things just a touch differently but the inspiration came entirely from Clean Food Crush…so all the credit that direction (and check it out – LOTS of clean eating recipes, encouragement and motivation going on over there).


This is another recipe where veggies can easily be swapped out for whatever you have on hand, is on sale at the store, or tickles your taste buds.

It’s recipes like this that make me eager for my garden (which is not even yet planted) to start cranking out goodies. A yummy recipe as is goes to a whole new level when home-grown gets involved.

Instructions
  1. Warm 1 Tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat, add chicken and cook through. Remove from pan.
  2. Warm 1 Tbsp olive oil and melt 1 Tbsp butter in pan. Add onions. Drop the heat down a couple notches and allow onions to caramelize (stir them around to coat with oil/butter then let cook for 5'ish min undisturbed. Stir and let go another 5'ish min).
  3. Add last (1) Tbsp olive oil and remainder of veggies. Cook to desired doneness (I prefer a little crunch on my peppers and asparagus, personally).
  4. Return chicken to the pan and add dry Italian Seasoning and balsamic vinegar. Stir to mix it all together.
  5. Salt and pepper to taste and serve alongside some fresh French bread (If your diet tolerates gluten, of course).
