Chicken Skillet (Recipe)


✅ 4 large chicken cutlets, boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-2cm pieces

✅ 1 tbsp dried oregano, divided

✅ 1 tsp salt, divided

✅ 1 tsp black pepper, divided

✅ ½ cup whole wheat flour

✅ extra virgin olive oil (Kasadrinos **FREE Bottle**)
✅ 5 garlic cloves minced

✅ 1 teaspoon dry oregano

✅ 230 g brown or white mushrooms, cleaned, trimmed, and sliced

✅ rosa tomatoes, halved I used about 3 cups

✅ 2 tbsp chopped fresh garlic

✅ 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice, juice of ½ lemon

✅ 1 cup baby spinach, optional


1️⃣ Pat chicken cutlets dry. Season on both sides with ½ tablespoon dried oregano, ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Coat the chicken cutlets with the whole wheat flour; dust off excess. Set aside briefly.

2️⃣ Heat 2 tablespoon olive oil in a large cast iron skillet with a lid like this one. Brown the chicken cutlets on both sides (3 minutes or so). Transfer the chicken cutlets to a plate for now.

3️⃣ In the same skillet, add more olive oil if needed. Add the mushrooms and saute briefly on medium-high (about 1 minute or so). Then add the tomatoes, garlic, the remaining ½ tablespoon oregano, ½ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper, and 2 teaspoon whole wheat flour. Cook for another 3 minutes or so, stirring regularly.
then add the lemon juice and chicken broth.

4️⃣ Bring the liquid to a boil, then add the chicken back in the skillet. Cook over high heat briefly (about 3 minutes), then reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for another 7 to 8 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked and its internal heat registers a minimum of 329°F.

5️⃣ If you like, stir in a handful of baby spinach just before serving. Enjoy hot with your favorite green salad or crusty Italian bread!
