If you have been reading Mom on the Run (Hi) since the very beginning, you would know that I PUFFY HEART love one skillet dishes. For me one skillet dishes are some of the easiest dishes to whip up in a short amount of time. I will admit, I have had some one skillet flops in my kitchen. Recipes that lacked flavor and substance. When I stumbled across a skillet dish now, I over analyze the ingredients insuring that my skillet will have a great tasting ending.
Prevention Magazine featured many One Skillet recipes that peaked my interest. In fact I have flagged three different ones to try:
Skillet Chicken and Rice
Lemon Turkey Cutlets
- Don’t these dishes all sound yummy. It was hard choosing which one I should make first, but I finally decided. Drum Roll please…….
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 6 oz fully cooked turkey kielbasa or sausage, cut into 1/4"-thick slices
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 2" pieces
- 1 pkg (14.4 oz) frozen sliced bell peppers and onions
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 tbsp cajun seasoning
- 3 C cooked brown rice
- 1 1/2 C frozen peas
- 1/2 C reduced-sodium chicken broth

- Heat oil in large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add kielbasa and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer to plate.
- Add chicken and cook, turning, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer to plate.
- Cook peppers and onions, stirring, until liquid evaporates, 6 minutes. Add garlic and seasoning and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in rice, peas, and broth.
- Nestle chicken and kielbasa into rice. Simmer, partially covered, until chicken is done, 5 minutes.
This recipe was easy to make and amazing to eat. In fact this is going to be my number 1 go to One Skillet dish. So many great flavors and the kids LOVED it. I added a little chopped avocado for some extra flavor. DELISH! I could not get enough and thank goodness there was enough for lunch today.
