Hey everyone, how was your weekend? It was a bank holiday here in the UK so we got a three day weekend and we’ve been pretty busy! It’s also been unusually lovely weather this weekend which means we’ve managed to get some sunny times. On Saturday we had a barbecue and a few friends came round which was really lovely and we ate loads of yummy food. I’m getting super sad that that might be the last summery thing of the year.

Yesterday we went to meet the second new baby in mine and Will’s families in the space of a week! My sister gave birth to a baby girl last Saturday and then his sister had a baby girl on Wednesday. It’s very exciting! So we had some baby cuddles yesterday and then took Will’s nephew to the park which was a lot of fun. In the evening there was a summer party out in our communal garden so we hung out there for a bit before getting pizza!

Anyway, on to this Italian chicken skillet. I made this for Will a few weeks ago when he got home from being away at a festival for the weekend. It was the perfect thing to sustain him after a tiring weekend. Plus it was so yummy!

The best thing about this recipe is that it’s all made in one skillet. It’s just so easy to make. You start off by seasoning the chicken and getting it all nicely cooked in the skillet. Once that’s done you set it to one side and get started on your sauce. That’s a simple combo of veggies, tomatoes and cream plus a lovely sprinkling of olives at the end.

Although I suppose you could leave out the olives if you don’t like them. It really adds to the dish though, I promise. Then you just gotta add those chicken breasts back to the skillet, make sure they’re cooked through and serve with a large helping of spaghetti or any other pasta you fancy. Can you think of anything better?

Ingredients

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper

For the Chicken

  • 4 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp Dried Thyme

For the Sauce

  • 200 g Mushrooms sliced
  • 1 Red Pepper sliced
  • 2 cloves Garlic crushed
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp Dried Thyme
  • 1 400g tin Chopped Tomatoes
  • 100 ml Chicken Stock
  • 60 ml Double Cream
  • Handful Pitted Green Olives
  • Fresh Basil Leaves to serve
  • Spaghetti to serve

Instructions

  1. Start by sprinkling the chicken breasts with the garlic powder, oregano, thyme and a good helping of salt and pepper on both sides. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a skillet and cook the chicken on both sides until browned. Set aside.

  2. Heat another drizzle of olive oil and add the garlic, mushrooms and pepper. Cook until softened. Add the remaining dried herbs and some more salt and pepper followed by the chopped tomatoes, chicken stock and cream. Cook for 5-10 minutes.

  3. Add the chicken back to the skillet and continue to cook until the chicken is cooked through. I used a meat thermometer to make sure it was fully cooked. Serve with freshly cooked spaghetti and some fresh basil leaves.
