Time for another Sunday dinner! Today we are keeping it simple. I made this awesome skillet chicken with cream sauce it’s fast, easy, and super flavorful!
I really love meals that I can make in one dish or pan. I especially love my cast iron skillet. This thing is a kitchen beast. If you haven’t tried using cast iron for cooking it’s a must! I’ll post more on the care and benefits of using cast iron later.
You’ll love this chicken recipe though. Here’s what you need.
2lbs chicken tenders
2Tbsp chili powder
1Tbsp onion powder
1Tbsp garlic powder
1.5 tsp salt
1 c water or chicken broth
1/2 c heavy cream
1/2tsp xantham gum this helps to thicken the sauce, you can buy this at most health food store and large grocery chains.
Preheat your skillet and melt 3Tbsp of the butter. Mix together the seasonings, and use all of the seasonings mix to thoroughly coat the chicken. Add chicken to the skillet. Cook 6min on med-high heat turning once. Add the other 3 Tbsp of butter, water, and cream. Allow butter to melt and sauce to bubble then add the xantham gum. Mix in well and allow to cook on medium heat for an additional 10-12 minutes turning chicken occasionally. The sauce will thicken up slowly but is not meant to be a super thick sauce. Serve hot with a spoonful of the sauce on top and enjoy! It’s that easy!
