One Skillet Lemon-Rosemary Chicken and potatoes
A few weeks back, I was extremely busy. I was trying to get several things accomplished around my house and noticed  I had very little on hand in the refrigerator from not shopping that week. I did have chicken, potatoes, carrots, onions and so forth but not much else. Rummaging through my cabinets, I came across low sodium chicken broth  my normal dried herbs I keep on hand and, of course, I have a fresh herb garden so there is always fresh herbs on hand. I thought to myself  you know what I have an idea…. I keep seeing all these One Pot and One Skillet meals on the web. As a matter of fact, just the other day my buddy Dina from Kitchen Dreaming did one as well.

Of course I immediately searched  out one of my favorite,  trusty metal skillets, started seasoning my chicken, then searing the boneless and skinless chicken, chopping &  slicing my vegetables,  tossed in my on hand ingredients, herbs and spices, brought it to a simmer, reduced the heat to low, placed a tight-fitting lid on, and relaxed for about 22 minutes while it cooked.  Now the question in my head, How is this going to taste? The answer? BEST One Skillet Meal ever. I swear I received more compliments off of that simple meal made in one skillet for my family.

Since I refuse to place anything on the blog that I haven’t tested and tweaked a few times I wanted to make it a few more times. Of course, I tweaked a few things from my original Skillet meal and the result was even better! You will find the tweaked  and kitchen tested version below. If you have 30 minutes to spare I can promise you it’s going to be one of the better One Skillet Meals you make for your families dinner. Be sure to come back and let us know how much you enjoyed it.
