A delicious combination of tangy, sweet sauce with chicken and spinach served atop delicious Orzo in this skillet meal.
When is the last time you made a skillet meal to save on time and serve up all the yum?
If you have never used your cast iron skillet to make a one pot meal you are cheating yourself in the kitchen. But let me help you!
I'd like to think of myself of the thirty minute meal queen, in addition to a few other things.
I cook delicious meals but I am just not spending a whole lot of time in the kitchen doing it.
Sunday's are typically when I put in the most effort. But on a recent Sunday, I made a meal that tasted like I put in a whole lot of time, and I didn’t! That is a Win!
I had a meat and vegetable in one space. Started on the stove and ended in the oven, without ever changing dishes.
That my friends, is what I call magic.
How'd I do it?
My cast iron skillet.
I made a delicious meal that was nothing short of amazing in under thirty minutes, and using one dish.
Who's the real MVP?
I am. Thank you. Thank you!
A delicious blend of juicy chicken breasts and spinach in a homemade tomato sauce and topped with cheese. Fresh mozzarella cheese.
I chose to serve it over orzo pasta. But this could have easily been served over rice and been just as delicious.
School is starting soon. Your schedule is gonna pick back up. Prepare yourself by having quick and easy, delicious meals that you can make with minimal effort and serve with love.
How do you make a skillet meal in your cast iron skillet?
Start by making your chicken. Setting it aside and then making your sauce.
Replace the chicken in the skillet with spinach and cheese and you have made a meal that will leave you known as the champ.
I don't know about you, but I love to be deemed the champ in the kitchen around these parts.
You can join the club and thank me later.
