Italian Chicken Skillet Dinner


I think most of us can agree that it’s impossible to have too many chicken recipes. Especially when they are recipes that let you get a delicious dinner on the table in less than thirty minutes. That’s just the sort of recipe this Italian Chicken Skillet is – you get a full meal out of one skillet and it happens to be one that’s filling but healthy and super simple to make.

Sheet Pan Chicken Pot Pie


You might be asking, what is wrong with a regular Chicken Pot Pie? Nothing, absolutely nothing. They’re nearly perfect. But! If you happened to appreciate a ratio of flaky crust to filling or if you had a whole lot of people to feed you might want to look at our Sheet Pan Chicken Pot Pie. It has everything you know and love – a slightly creamy, saucy chicken filling studded with carrots, celery, onion, and peas that’s surrounded by impossibly flaky crust – there’s just more of it. More buttery crisp crust, more pot pie to go around, but all the same amazing comforting flavor.

Classic Chicken Piccata


Isn’t it a nice thing when a classic dish also turns out to be incredibly easy to make? That’s precisely the case with Chicken Piccata – it’s a dish that looks and tastes much more complicated than it is but, in reality, you can build that buttery, lemony sauce and cook that tender chicken in just about twenty minutes! That means a restaurant-quality meal in your own kitchen on any given weeknight. What’s not to love about that?

Creamy Country Chicken and Biscuits


You could probably get away with calling this Chicken and Dumplings. You could even mayyyybe get away with calling it a Cheater’s Chicken Pot Pie. But no matter what you call it, all you really need to know is that it’s positively delicious, stick to your ribs comfort food. Our Creamy Country Chicken and Biscuits is an easy dinner to prepare, but it’s equally easy to love.

Creamy Chicken Mushroom Florentine


A quick chicken skillet is the ultimate go-to dinner on busy weeknights but this one, well, this one tastes more like a special occasion dish. I think it’s the creamy garlic and parmesan-kissed sauce that does it; full of tender mushrooms and spinach, it tastes like something you’d get in a restaurant, not something that took you a quick twenty-five minutes to make. But it really is that simple. So the next time you are turning to some basic chicken breasts for dinner, go ahead and dress them up. And dress them up like this.
