Denise’s Easy One Skillet Chicken Dinner

by Denise on May 12, 2011


Some of my favorite things are fresh green beans from the garden but we always grow way more than we can eat in a hurry.  Luckily I learned a great trick from my mother-in-law for saving them – I put all the extra green beans into a cotton pillowcase, unwashed directly from the garden, tie a knot in the top and store it in the freezer.  It’s super simple to just pull out a couple handfuls and wash them when I need them for a dish like this easy one skillet chicken dinner.  It’s always nice when you don’t have to dirty a bunch of dishes to make supper, and even better yet when you can put a lid on, walk away and let dinner cook itself.  This chicken comes out so tender, moist and delicious that even the kids ask for seconds so be sure to make plenty!

I made this on Friday night! Oh it was so good! I made mine gluten free by using white rice flour in place of the wheat flour and it turned out great! My gluten eating husband said it was awesome! Great Recipe!
