Chicken is a universal favorite protein for my family. Chicken is easy to change up when it comes to flavors, ways to cook it or what to incorporate it into.

I absolutely love skillet meals for their ease and one-cooking-dish method. Cast iron skillets can be transferred from stovetop to oven seamlessly which makes it one of my favorite ways to cook a meal. Less dishes makes for one happier mama.

I love this blend of flavors in this recipe. They fuse together deliciously to make for a tender, juicy and flavorful main dish. This chicken would pair perfectly with a variety of side dishes. This will definitely be a recipe I revisit over and over.
