Mediterranean Chicken Skillet

When a dinner is made with mainly pantry ingredients and only requires one skillet, you know it’s a winner. My family considers this Mediterranean chicken skillet a winner winner chicken dinner. There’s nothing really fancy about this dish. Really there’s nothing really fancy about any of my meals, but they are fast, easy, packed with flavor, and healthy. Like I often say, “simple dinners get the job done”.

I almost always have chicken breasts and chicken thighs in the freezer and olives, artichoke hearts, and tomatoes in the pantry.  This dish can be whipped up in a flash when all of the ingredients are on hand.  I’ve never tried it, but I feel pretty confident you could also make this in the slow cooker or pressure cooker for an even more hands-off approach.  The chicken may shred if you cook it in the slow cooker though. I prefer it made in the skillet, but you do what works best for you!

I usually serve this Mediterranean chicken skillet with a nice spinach salad, but you can pair it with whatever you like! Roasted veggies, pasta, or rice would all be lovely.
