Chicken Veggies Cheese – One Skillet- Quick and Easy

chicken veggies cheese-9-poppopcooks-one pan

Chicken Veggies Cheese all in one skillet and on the table in less than half an hour!

This one is sort of on the order of this one skillet chicken dinner that we did a little while ago.

I had mine on some pasta tonight but if you wanted to add some slices of potatoes right at the beginning you would have the whole meal in the one skillet and it would be gluten free.

Put a skillet on at medium high and eyeball enough olive oil to cover the bottom.

Cut up the chicken tenders into four pieces each and the carrots into slices about 1/4″ wide.

Put the chicken, carrots and broccoli in the skillet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. A pinch of red pepper flakes would liven things up a little, but, that’s up to you.

Stir or toss it all together a few times as it cooks. While it all is coming together coarsely chop up the garlic cloves.

When the chicken is starting to get brown push everything out to the sides of the skillet and put the garlic in the bare spot with the butter. Squeeze the lemon juice onto the garlic and let it get hot and cook a little.

When the garlic has started to get translucent toss everything together again. Then add the feta cheese.

May I suggest a nice dry white wine like a sauvignon blanc or a chardonnay? Enjoy!!

Spicy Easy Chicken Breast Recipe

Spicy easy chicken breast recipe-7-poppopcooks.com

This Spicy Easy Chicken Breast Recipe is a real good one for a busy weeknight. You could include some  potato slices when you put the carrots in the skillet and have the whole meal in one pan.

I wanted some pasta tonight so that’s why you will see some fettuccine in the pics. But, you could do it with any veggie combo that you want. The jalapeño peppers are what make this chicken breast recipe stand out on it’s own. So, after the peppers it’s up to you.

Let’s get it going. Put a skillet on at medium high and swirl in enough olive oil to coat the bottom. Salt and pepper the up side of the chicken breasts. Lay the breasts in the skillet with the salt and pepper side down and jazz up the new “up” side.

Cook each side about 3-5 minutes depending on the thickness of the breasts. When the juices run clear and/or they are firm to a poke. I just check ’em with an instant read meat thermometer and when the thickest part is 165°F they are done. Remove them to a dish that will catch the drippings.

Add the chopped jalapeño peppers and whatever other veggies are tonight’s pick.  I went with some baby carrots and some thick zucchini slices. Salt and Pepper them.

You might like to add a pad of butter and squeeze in some lemon juice. B ut that’s up to you.Toss the veggies a few times as they cook. When they are done like you like them push them off the side of the pan and put in the breasts, the drippings and the chicken broth (or white wine).

Turn the breasts a couple of times as they warm back up and the liquid reduces.

Parmesan Crusted Chicken Filets- Pan Seared in Bacon Fat

parmesan crusted chicken-4-poppopcooks.com

Yes, I said Parmesan Crusted Chicken Filets pan seared in bacon fat.

I had fried up a few strips of bacon to add to some Spinach Salad. I was about to trash the bacon fat left in the skillet and clean it to cook up the chicken filets when I thought,,, why not?

So I put it back on the stove and went ahead with our Parmesan Crusted Chicken Filets – Pan Seared in Bacon Fat. You could save the bacon to crumble on to the filets when you serve them or add them to tonights veggie. Mine didn’t survive that long. I scarfed up the bacon pretty quick.

Get the skillet a little hotter than your usual “medium high”. Salt, pepper, garlic powder and parmesan cheese one side of the filets.

Lay them out in the skillet with the seasoned side down and jazz up the other side.

Three to five minutes a side depending on how thick they are.

When the juices run clear or they are firm to a finger poke or the best way is to check the thickest part with an instant read meat thermometer and it is at least 165°.

Then serve and enjoy your Parmesan Crusted Chicken Filets – Pan Seared in Bacon Fat. The bacon flavor and the crisp parmesan came together to make a real good quick and easy weeknight dinner.

One of our daughters lives nearby and she  likes Moscato so we always keep a bottle in the fridge for her pop in visits. We raided it and enjoyed it with our Parmesan Crusted Chicken Filets.

Baked Chicken Breasts with Hummus – Whole Meal on One Baking Sheet – 30 Min.

baked chicken breasts with hummus-3-poppopcooks.com-chicken breast recipes-gluten free-paleo-quick and easy

Baked Chicken Breasts with Hummus turned out real good,,, and I don’t like hummus!

But, used like this as a light coating on the Baked Chicken Breasts was a nice new twist on our many ways to use chicken breasts for a quick and easy weeknight meal.

Gammy likes hummus so, yes, there is always some in the fridge. But I never have or want any of it.

Well, I saw this recipe on Google while looking for new ideas for my blog and made it last night. It resulted in the only time, ever, that I enjoyed hummus.

Plus it’s gluten free and gets a green light for paleo.

Just pick any veggies that won’t cook real quickly and get mushy in the oven i.e. peas, spinach, etc.

Turn the oven on set at 450°. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray or wipe it with olive oil.

Cut up the veggies and put them on the baking sheet. Drizzle them with extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder and grated parmesan cheese.

Toss it all together with a pair of tongs or just get adventurous and do it by hand. Spread the veggies out flat.

Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken breasts and lay them on top of the vegetables. Spread a thin coat of your favorite hummus on top of the chicken then…….

….into the oven it goes. For 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the breasts. When they are firm to a finger poke or read at least 170° on a meat thermometer take  the pan out of the oven and serve your Baked Chicken Breasts with Hummus.
