South Beach Chicken Skillet

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Pixie

This is a quick and easy meal suitable for the South Beach diet on a week night. The amount of spices listed here give the chicken a very mild kick. This is not a hot dish, although you could make it so if you wished.

I have made this a couple of times. We really like it. We omit the onion and cube the chicken and peppers. We love it. It is healthy and a "whole foods" meal that my whole family will eat. Thank you for posting Pixie.
