This Easy Stovetop Chicken can be fixed in minutes to make a delicious sandwich or served over pasta with your favorite sauce.
Why is it so hard to come up with dinner ideas? Many times, I think we make it harder than it should be. All we need is a little inspiration to think outside our normal go-to dinner choices.
That’s what happened when Barbara made this Easy Stovetop Chicken for dinner one night. She also sliced up some potatoes and made some steak fries in the oven while fixing these chicken breasts, because you cannot go wrong with a side of potatoes with almost any meal!
Easy Stovetop Chicken
These Easy Stovetop Chicken breasts couldn’t be easier to make.
You could even change it up from a chicken sandwich by simmering the chicken breasts in some of your favorite pasta sauce (like marinara or piccata) during the last few minutes in the skillet and then serving it over pasta.
The best part is that you can make as many chicken breasts as needed for your family. Just add more flour and seasoning.
