Creamy Chicken and Herb Skillet is a quick and fresh-tasting weeknight meal.

Ingredients (4 servings)

  • 1lb chicken breasts, pounded thin
  • Extra virgin olive oil, for brushing
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • Brush both sides of chicken breasts with extra virgin olive oil then season both sides with salt and pepper. Cook in a nonstick sprayed skillet over medium-high heat until no longer pink in the center, then remove to a plate and set aside.
