Fire Roasted Tomato Chicken Skillet

July 14, 2018 | Author: Ashley McCrary

I was just telling my husband the other day how much I love one skillet meals because of how much time it saves  This inspired me to create a new one skillet meal that turned out to be a new family favorite. This Fire Roasted Tomato Basil Chicken Skillet is absolutely delicious and such an easy and tasty options for all of those busy weeks. Being a recipe creator, I always think about how to get a tasty and healthy meal on the table in little to no time at all. When I recipe test I always factor in cooking time, nutrition and clean up time. Here comes the good news, this meal gets an A+ in all areas. Busy mommas, dads and single parents, I got your back with 🙂

This dish is full of such good summertime flavors that pair nicely with cauliflower rice. It is so filling and can also serve as leftovers during the week. My 3 year old told me that she thinks it taste like spaghetti with chicken in it, haha. I will cut her chicken up in small pieces on top of the cauliflower rice and cover it with the tomato sauce and she will inhale the entire plate and ask for seconds.

This dish is amazing anytime of the year and isn’t expensive to make. I will throw in a few chicken breast along with a couple of cans of fire roasted tomatoes, coconut milk, onions, chicken broth tapioca flour to thicken and topped with fresh basil. It feels like it came straight from a restaurant in Italy.

On another note, you could take out the chicken and this would make a delicious tomato soup for those cool fall days. I plan to try to make a recipe for a big pot of fire roasted tomato soup for the fall and winter. I will keep you guys posted, of course.

If you are tired of the same boring meals, switch things up and give this one skillet dish a try. I am hopeful that this will become a new staple in your household that the whole family will love. If you season of life is currently so busy you can’t breath, still try to make it a priority to put a healthy meal on the table.

(AD) With the back-to-school season right around the corner, life can get pretty busy. I'm here to help with a quick and easy lunchbox idea featuring @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouch. If you are not a fan of spicy, don't fear, these little pouches come in 23+ varieties and you can find them in the tuna aisle in the grocery store or online. Most of the pouches have 10g+ lean protein per single-serve pouch and 110 calories or less. I love serving these with my favorite fruits and veggies to make them a complete lunch or snack. These pouches are also great for a post-workout protein-filled snack. Just tear it open and eat straight from the pouch. #EverydayGoals

Every year I let the girls pick out a theme for their birthday cakes and I try to make it magical. This year Eloise wanted a chocolate cake with watercolor buttercream along with pink and teal macarons. It turned out better than I imagined and Eloise absolutely love it!!!

🧁For the buttercream, I used my recipe that is located on my site. You can also find it in my profile

🍰As for the cake, I  used my box cake mix hack. This is seriously my favorite way to make a cake because it tastes straight from the bakery. See the hack below

✨Follow the box cake mix instructions but with these changes 
Tip 1 Add one more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich)
Tip 2 Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount
Tip 3 Use milk instead of water
Tip 4 if using for cupcakes fill 3/4 of cupcake liners with the mix.
✨Bake according to the box and remove it two minutes early and let them sit for a couple of minutes in the tin. ✨Remove and allow them to cool

🍓I used Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam for the middle
