18 Delicious Chicken Skillet Recipes for Dinner Tonight

There are some phrases that come out of my mouth a lot these days. “Get in the car — quick!” is one. “Hurry!” is another. It’s a by-product of a busy, but productive life. We try to squeeze as much time as we can out of the crevices of our days, and that means we’re often hustling to make it to whatever’s next — the school bus pick up, the school program, the meeting. While it’d be nicer not to always be rushing, this isn’t all bad. Especially when we’re hustling because we lingered over breakfast or wanted to play one quick game together.

It’s not exactly the family life I imagined, but it’s great all the same. Even if it can be a little hectic at times.

With this busy life comes a need to make some bits of it more streamlined. That’s why I pack lunches at the same time in the morning, in near-identical makeups. It’s also why I arrange for soccer practices for both kids to be at the same time on the same day. And when it comes to dinners, I am all for easy dinners — ones that leave fewer items to wash, but still have big flavor. And chicken skillet recipes are perfect for that. Often one pan recipes, flavors are built layer by layer, creating delicious, different, unique dinners that are so satisfying.
