Lemon Chicken Skillet Dinner Recipe

Eating healthier is always a goal in this family. In fact, over the last couple months, we have really done a good job cutting out a lot of sweets and adding in more vegetables. Even the kids! They have discovered that they love broccoli (so long as their is Ranch to dip it in) and they also like the “white broccoli” a.k.a. cauliflower. We also eat a lot of chicken.

Doesn’t it look delicious?!? You really can customize this to your own tastes. Don’t like broccoli…not a problem. Take out the broccoli and put in cauliflower or even zucchini would be good! I showed this chicken skillet dinner to my kids and they both admitted that it looked really good! I may get them to try peppers and possibly even eat an onion that’s not the Bloomin’ Onion from Outback! Enjoy!
