Cheesy Broccoli and Chicken Skillet Dinner

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

This is very quick and extremely easy if you are in a hurry. It can be served with potatoes, or rice in any form.I have even cooked this on the burner on the grill outside on a hot day.A slight variation of the can recipe. I think the flour adds to the flavor more along with the spices.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a non-stick pan or cast aluminum.
  2. Sprinkle the chicken with the Essence then dredge in a little flour.
  3. Shake off the excess and put carefully into the oil away from yourself to avoid grease from spattering.
  4. Brown the chicken quickly on all sides, but you still want it to be undone inside.
  5. This process will only take about 5-8 min.
  6. If you are going to add the peppers to this here is where you would add them just to wilt them slightly.
  7. Turn your flame to medium low.
  8. Stir your soup and milk or water into a measuring cup and stir out the lumps.
  9. Pour over the cooking meat.
  10. Sprinkle in your parsley and ground pepper.
  11. Cover your pan and let this cook about 5 min.
  12. Then add your broccoli.
  13. You would also add the mushrooms here if you are going to add them.
  14. Cover and let this cook, checking after about 10 min.
  15. If the meat is tender it is done.

This was very yummy. My husband and I tried this last night, we thought it was very good. I only used one soup can, and I found that it wasn't quite as saucy as I would've liked it. So I just added a little more milk to the skillet and it was great. Thank you for sharing this! :)

This was very quick and easy to make. My family loved it. The only problem I had was that the chicken wasn't as tender as I'd like. I used boneless, skinless breasts, so maybe that was the problem. I'll try to cook it a little longer at a lower temp next time.
