Quick Apple & Chicken Skillet

With a bag of granny smith apples in my fridge so sour that I can barely eat them with sugar and chicken breast thawing in my fridge I thought I’d experiment in the kitchen. I figured I’d make a meal we all love or we could have been eating peanut butter and jam sandwiches for supper instead. This Quick Apple & Chicken Skillet was the perfect meal, and one that is going into our meal planning rotation now.

Remember, don’t go check your email while you are cooking. If you do, then yours will look be a little blacker than it should be. Like mine. While it was a little blacker than it should have been, it was still delicious. Like, OMG good. Hubby was very suspicious of it from the moment I peeled the first apple. But said, a little less burnt and it was definitely a make again meal.

This Apple & Chicken Skillet needs to be on everyone’s menu this summer!
