Although there are endless ways to cook a bird, one of our favorite techniques involves our trusty skillet and practically zero dishes. Here, 17 different skillet chicken recipes, from cheater’s white wine coq au vin to chicken tortilla pie.
30-Minute Creamy Chicken, Corn and Tomato Skillet
A handful of ingredients and just three simple steps are all it takes to whip up this crowd-pleaser.
A speedy summer dinner that tastes super indulgent (thanks to juicy pieces of tomato and a dusting of Parm) but is actually low-cal, low-carb and packed with protein.
One-Pan Creamy Chicken Fricassee with Sage
This simplified version of an Italian classic tastes like it was made by an Italian grandma. Plus, the sauce is thickened with egg yolks and lemon juice, not heavy cream.
