I love one skillet meals. It sure has been busy around our house the last few weeks. Between scouts, basketball games, practices, piano lessons, and a busy toddler, we always seem like we are on the go! The great thing about this meal is that it was ready in just 30 minutes.

I still love to have a delicious and hearty meal for my family when we are so busy. This meal is quick and easy and the flavor is incredible!

I especially LOVE the thai peanut glaze on this chicken. It thickens up and coats the chicken perfectly adding such amazing flavor. But how can you go wrong with a soy sauce, peanut, garlic, lime glaze that coats the chicken perfectly? You just can’t. My mind was seriously blown with with the first bite!

We all loved this meal and I know that your family will too!

  1. I don’t do reviews, but I had to write to let everyone know how good this recipe is! We used cubed boneless chicken breasts and cut back a bit on the soy sauce due to the sodium, also added 1/8 tsp of red pepper flakes to the glaze sauce mix to give it a bit more overall spice. Clear, concise instructions. Try it, you won’t be sorry.

  2. I made this tonight for my son and I. It was delicious! I love the peanut sauce, it was very tasty. I topped ours with cilantro (cause I had some in my refrig and I love it and chopped peanuts.) Thanks!

  3. I noticed you’re not putting total carbs and fiber in the nutritional facts and some don’t have them at all, like the Thai Peanut Skillet Chicken and Skinny Lemon Bars.
