I just love skillet meals. They make food prep and clean-up so much easier, and make take-out a little less alluring on those busy nights.
A Rosemary Chicken Recipe the Kids Can Help Make!
This Skillet Tomato Rosemary Chicken recipe is an easy meal the whole family will love – and bonus: the kids can help with nearly every step so you don’t need to worry about distracting them while you get supper ready.
An Easy Skillet Tomato Rosemary Chicken Recipe
The simplicity of the ingredients is what makes this so delicious. You only need some lemon, garlic, diced tomatoes, and fresh rosemary to make this skillet chicken shine!
I highly recommend using Redpack Tomatoes for the diced tomatoes in this recipe. I’ve been using this brand for years and can attest to the quality. And with the tomatoes being the hero of this dish, you need quality.
I also love that they’re “Family-Owned and Family-Farmed.” Coming from a generation of farmers, I can appreciate how Redpack works with farmers they personally know to ensure the perfect harvest time for the ripest tomatoes and highest quality product.
This recipe starts with butter and garlic. Doesn’t every good recipe start with butter and garlic?
Rubbing olive oil, salt, pepper, and rosemary onto the chicken breasts helps to infuse them with amazing flavor before adding them to the skillet.
After the chicken browns in the skillet, you’ll add diced tomatoes before popping it in the oven to finish off – and soak up that amazing tomato rosemary flavor!
I like to cook a grain for mixing in with the tomatoes. This time I went with quinoa, but rice or even a bean medley would work nicely, too.
Psst… Have the kids help set the table – dinner will be ready soon!
Just follow your favorite quinoa’s package directions to prepare it.
The bright tomato and rosemary sauce will add flavor and texture to the quinoa. Which becomes a delicious bed for the rosemary chicken!
I love this Skillet Tomato Rosemary Chicken Recipe served like this, but if you’d like a bit of rich tomato sauce on top, simply push a spoonful of those cooked tomatoes through a sieve and spoon that delicious and simple sauce over top of your chicken breasts.
