How to Make Creamy Chicken Skillet
Making this Creamy Chicken Skillet is fast and easy; it only takes a few steps.
First, season each halved chicken breast with salt and pepper. Then add it to a skillet (this is such a high-quality skillet that I use all the time) along with some olive oil and cook for 4 minutes on each side. You can check the internal temperature of the chicken with a meat thermometer. Once it reaches 165, it is done. Set the chicken aside.
Add some more olive oil to the skillet and scrape the flavorful bits off of the bottom of the pan. Then add in the zucchini and onion and cook for a few minutes until they start to soften a bit. Add in the tomatoes, cream cheese, broth, and seasonings. Cover the skillet and let that all simmer together for a few minutes, or until the cream cheese is all melted.
Add the chicken back to the skillet, and serve with egg noodles, mashed potatoes, rice, or cauliflower rice if you want to keep it low carb.
