Skillet Chicken with Mushrooms and Peppers is an easy and healthy dinner that will make its way into your regular rotation!
Are you convinced that great, flavorful meals, meals that everyone loves, take extra time, extra ingredients, or extra something that you don’t have?
I’d love to help you change that perception. Let’s begin with this Skillet Chicken with Mushrooms and Peppers.
It starts with the unassuming boneless, skinless chicken breast. Everyone I know can use more chicken breast recipes. We all want to know how to take the leanest part of the chicken and give it some flavor because let’s face it: on its own it’s definitely lacking.
With really simple ingredients and not very much time, we can transform that basic, boring chicken breast into a tasty dinner you’ll want to make again and again.
This Skillet Chicken with Mushrooms and Peppers recipe uses simple techniques to make sure the chicken has flavor and isn’t dry. I used red and yellow bell peppers and white mushrooms for the veggies, but you could conceivably use a number of different vegetables here. Just use the base recipe and use what you have!
The best part is everything is made in one skillet and is ready in about 30 minutes, maybe less if you’re really speedy in the kitchen. (Or you don’t have kids who interrupt you fifteen times before you get one bell pepper sliced…)
I use a cast iron skillet and recommend using one if you have it. You can serve this Skillet Chicken with with rice or quinoa for a satisfying meal. Or if you’d rather keep it low carb, add a simple salad.
This dinner really does check all the boxes.
Quick? 30 minutes or less, baby.
Delicious? Oh yes.
Healthy? For sure.

This recipe seems like a perfect answer to my search for simple recipes… I always have peppers and mushrooms and chicken in my fridge. But I never have white wine or cooking wine. Can I use a bit of homemade chicken stock as the liquid in this recipe?
Yes, that will work!
Loved it! Added onions
Delish! I used fresh peppers and added zucchini served over cauliflower rice.
Will make again…
very very delicious dishes recipies
