Today’s recipe is my very favorite from the new 101 Farmhouse Favorites… Skillet Chicken.

Well go on now and I’ll wait 😉
Do…do, do,do. Do…do, do.
Back? Okay… now on to the recipe.
Start out by heating 2 T of Olive Oil in an ovenproof skillet. (I used my cast iron skillet.)
Meanwhile, combine 2 T Flour, 1/8 tsp each of paprika, kosher salt and black pepper.
Take 8 chicken tenders and lightly coat them in the flour mixture and then place in skillet, just browning on each side.
Once the chicken has browned on both sides, remove from the skillet.
I then took one large red onion and cut it into bite sized pieces and tossed it in the skillet with 3 cups baby yellow potatoes- again in bite sized pieces.
Cook 5 minutes, then add:
3/4 Baby Carrots (I always pre-cook mine in the microwave.)
Fresh herbs. (I added several sprigs of thyme I have growing in my AeroGarden.)
3 T Lemon Juice
And… 1 1/2 Cups Chicken Broth.
Return the chicken to the skillet and cover.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and veggies are tender.
The chicken was so tender and the veggies and broth were just perfect for warming up on a cold day.
My family RAVED over this recipe.
This could definitely be considered a lightened up version of fried chicken. It packs a lot of the same flavors without the fat and calories.
In fact, 1/4 of this dish is only 321 calories.
