Skinny Creamy Chimichurri Chicken Skillet, the ultimate low carb low calorie dinner you can make in minutes!
There’s something so comforting about a simple chicken recipe with a creamy sauce.
A good silky sauce helps boring chicken come alive and gives it extra moisture… Especially if you have a tendency to over-cook meat.
However, I’ve learned over the years that you don’t actually have to add cream to a recipe to create a creamy sauce.
You can cheat with fat free cream cheese, which results in a smooth luxurious texture that happens to be low carb, low fat, and gluten free.
Today’s Skinny Creamy Chimichurri Chicken Skillet recipe combines classic Argentinian chimichurri sauce with a thick creamy finish.
The chicken is quickly seared in a hot skillet while you puree parsley, onions, garlic, spices, and red wine vinegar together.
Add in fat free cream cheese and some water to thin out the sauce and you have the perfect “quickie” dinner with robust herbaceous appeal.
Just pour the sauce over the top of the chicken and let it thicken as the chicken finishes cooking.
If you do happen to be a habitual chicken over-cooker, this method also helps slow down the cooking at the end, so the chicken doesn’t dry out.
Serve your Skinny Creamy Chimichurri Chicken Skillet with roasted vegetables or a big green salad and dinner is ready to serve!
