Creamy Tomato Chicken Skillet Dinner

Tender chicken breasts cook a garlicky, creamy tomato bath, and the addition kale rounds the creamy chicken skillet meal into a true one-pan dinner. Plus it's ready in just about 20 minutes.

Prep Time

        Prep time: 15 minutes
        Cook time: 25 minutes
        Yield: Serves 4


    •    kale
    •    basil
    •    garlic
    •    fennel seed
    •    heavy cream
    •    tomato paste
    •    Chicken breasts
    •    parmesan cheese
    •    crushed red pepper flakes
    •    canned, crushed tomatoes


  1. Brown the chicken breasts in a bit of olive oil, to give them a nice crisp outside. Set them aside.
  2. Keep the skillet warm, and add tomato paste, garlic, fennel seed and red pepper flakes. Then pour in the crushed tomatoes, and get the sauce simmering.
  3. Pour in the heavy cream along with some parmesan and kale.
  4. When the kale looks wilty, add the seared chicken breasts back to the skillet, and cook until the chicken is done.
  5. We like to top the finished chicken skillet with cheese and fresh basil then serve.
