Our latest family favorite, Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Chicken Skillet. A fab mid-week meal to serve with rice or pasta.
Just a couple weeks ago, we arrived home late in the evening from Ava’s swim team practice. It was such a busy day, and I hadn’t made plans for dinner and was feeling a little overwhelmed.
I’m sure that never happens to you. *wink*
I started sifting through the pantry to see what I had on-hand in order to make a quick dinner. I knew once I found a few key ingredients I would feel less stressed.
There was chicken, basil, and half a block of low fat cream cheese in the fridge. Onions, garlic, and a large jar of roasted red peppers in the pantry.
Keeping ingredients you love in stock is a sure-bet for pulling together a simple meal that satisfies as if it were planned.
In less than half an hour, I had a bold and savory meal my family raved about. In fact, they deemed it “blog worthy” insisting I share it with you immediately.
So here it is folks, the quickie meal that has turned into a family favorite at my house, Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Chicken Skillet.
I sautéed the chicken in a large skillet. Then took it out so I could use the skillet and juices to make a quick creamy pan sauce of sautéed onions and garlic, finely diced roasted red peppers, cream cheese, crushed red pepper, and a little chicken stock to thin it out.
Then I placed the chicken back in the skillet to warm, and stirred in some fresh basil for sweetness.
This healthy Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Chicken Skillet recipe is low in fat and high in protein. It’s wonderful served over rice or pasta, or with green steamed veggies.
See? Quick and simple can be dazzling.
Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Chicken Skillet is also a great recipe to stretch when extra guests show up.
Instead of serving one whole chicken breast per person, slice the chicken and cover it with sauce to feed up to eight people.
