Chicken is one of the meats we cook the most around here. I find myself getting bored with the same old recipes from time to time. Here are 21 chicken skillet recipes that are sure to get you out of your dinner rut. From my favorites to some I've been dying to try. Enjoy!
What is a chicken skillet recipe?
I've loosely defined a chicken skillet recipe as any recipe that cooks chicken in a skillet. This can include other foods or not. Some are one pot meals, others require sides and other components of the meal.
And don't forget the bread on the side! These Lion House Rolls copycat recipe are always a favorite. Or make this tasty garlic french bread. And don't miss this rice-a-roni copycat recipe that's amazing.
Tips for making chicken in a skillet
- Make sure your chicken is fully defrosted. Chicken that's a little frozen or extra cold in the middle will end up being dried out before it's done cooking.
- Use thin cuts or pound your chicken to make it thinner. This will cook up quicker and more evenly and prevent drying.
- Use an instant read meat thermometer. Put the thermometer in the side of the chicken to help prevent juices from flowing out through a hole in the bottom. Remove your chicken as soon as it hits 165 degrees.
