I have been completely obsessed lately with whipping up simple chicken and vegetable dishes in a skillet. It all started with this Balsamic Chicken, Mushroom, and Thyme and then this Lemon Chicken and Asparagus Skillet. I love these meals because they couldn't be easier and there is only one dish to clean at the end depending on what you serve on the side. I always make up batches of quinoa, brown rice, farro, or couscous at the beginning to the week to have ready for meals like this, so preparation and clean-up are easy.

So now let's talk about this yummy skillet chicken dinner. It all starts with simple, lean, quick cooking chicken breast tenders. You could use chicken breasts as well, just pound them out so they cook more quickly. Those are flavored with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper and quickly browned in a hot skillet. After that, the broccolini (any vegetable would work) is quickly cooked until just tender. Then you make a quick pan sauce using chicken broth, whole grain mustard, balsamic vinegar, and honey and finish cooking the chicken and vegetables in that. Dinner in about 15 minutes!
