Skillet Basil Cream Chicken

I’ve made this twice this week – it’s so good!

One of our favorite kitchen “tools” is our skillet, so we have a ton of great recipes that call for it that always turn out deliciously. We were trying to figure out what to make dinner the other night, when we decided on a recipe from one of our friends, Becky, from The Cookie Rookie.

This dish is so amazing and makes for the perfect choice for dinner, filled with protein from the chicken, and a deliciously flavorful sauce that’s smooth and creamy. It’s a breeze to make, so this really is a great option after a long and busy day, and we can’t wait to share the recipe with you! Enjoy!
