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!!

Chicken Pasta Primavera – Quick and Easy – 25 Minutes

Chicken Pasta Primavera-8-poppopcooks.com-pasta primavera-pasta primavera recipe-chicken primavera-pasta primavera with chicken-Italian pasta recipes

Chicken Pasta Primavera is a…..

…….Quick and Easy weeknight meal that you can put together with just about any vegetables that you have on hand.

Primavera translated from Italian means springtime but Pasta Primavera originated by an Italian chef in New York City in the 1970’s.

Enough history let’s get your Chicken Pasta Primavera going.

Put the chicken tenders in the microwave to thaw out while you cut up the vegetables. When I rooted around in the fridge I found some broccoli, asparagus, string beans, carrots, tomatoes, garlic, some mushrooms leftover from our last batch  of chicken marsala and some onions. But, literally, any vegetable or vegetables will work.

Put a large skillet or sauté pan on at medium high and swirl in some olive oil. While it’s heating up cut up the chicken tenders. When the pan is hot, put in the chicken and sprinkle it with some salt and pepper.

Put a pot of salted water on for your pasta and cook the pasta while you put together to Primavera part. If the pasta is al dente before the veggies are cooked just drain it and drizzle a little olive oil in. Stir it to get the pasta covered with the oil and put it on an idle back burner to keep warm while it waits its turn.

When the chicken has browned add all the veggies except the tomatoes and garlic. Stir it a few times as everything cooks.

Chicken Pasta Primavera-poppopcooks.com-pasta primavera-pasta primavera recipe-chicken primavera-pasta primavera with chicken-Italian pasta recipes

After about 3-4 minutes or when the veggies just start to get a little soft throw in the tomatoes and the garlic. Add the chicken broth or white wine, squeeze in the juice from a lemon and toss in the rind and stir it all together. When the liquid starts to simmer lower the heat to medium and simmer for a couple of minutes.

Sesame Chicken – Quick and Easy – 25 Minutes – Gluten Free

Sesame Chicken-4-poppopcooks.com-sesame chicken recipe-sesame chicken sauce-chicken recipes-easy chicken recipes-easy sesame chicken

Sesame Chicken is ….

…….what I order every time we go to our favorite Chinese restaurant, the Hunan Lion on South Lamar here in Austin.

It’s gotten to the point that the waitresses don’t even ask me what I want anymore. Gammy always gets Chicken and Broccoli, same deal.

I’ve tried a few different recipes that I found online and twisted and turned on them until I was happy with this one.

It is Quick and Easy and Delish which are the definite requirements here at poppopcooks.com

Having said all that here we go!

Put the minute rice ( or regular rice) on to cook, that is if you don’t have any leftover rice in the freezer waiting for you to microwave it. As suggested in my 10 tips for quick and easy weeknight meals.

Cut the chicken up into pieces a little bit bigger than bite size.

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

In a bowl big enough to handle the chicken, mix together the egg, the cornstarch, the salt and pepper.

Put the chicken in the bowl and stir it up getting it covered with the egg mixture. Then put it all in the skillet. Be sure to add all of the egg mixture.

Stir it it right away and toss or stir it a few times as it cooks. 7-9 minutes.

Sesame Chicken-poppopcooks.com-sesame chicken recipe-sesame chicken sauce-chicken recipes-easy chicken recipes-easy sesame chicken

While the chicken is cooking, back to the bowl. Mix up all the other ingredients except the peas and their share of the chopped garlic.

Just before the chicken is done put another larger skillet on at medium high with enough olive oil to cover the bottom. Put the peas and the garlic in  and toss them often as they cook. They only need 2-3 minutes. The snow peas are best a little crispy not at all soggy.

Sesame Chicken-3-poppopcooks.com-sesame chicken recipe-sesame chicken sauce-chicken recipes-easy chicken recipes-easy sesame chicken

When the chicken is browned and is firm to a poke add the sauce and stir it in  getting the chicken all covered in that good stuff. The sauce will thicken up pretty quickly and as soon as it does…..

……enjoy your fresh off the stove Sesame Chicken.
