This Creamy Chicken Skillet Recipe is the meaning of easy comfort food recipes.
Well, that time of year is approaching. You know the time I’m talking about? The time for comfort food recipes, pumpkin spice, fall clothing, and, my favorite, Pumpkin Patches. The Fall is my favorite time of year. The weather gets cool enough to where you will need a jacket but you can still wear breathable clothing; you still get beautiful blue skies but there is nothing like watching the leaves change, and the food is so good that it feels like it hugs you from the inside-out. I love Fall. Now that I have a child, I am beyond excited to share this season with him and explore the city of Cincinnati in a different way. I am going to get to experience the holidays and the fall through his eyes, which is so exciting for me. Now there are some things as a mom I do not look forward to doing and when I tell you, you are going to look at your computer screens in awe of what I must be talking about. Okay, are you ready? I do not look forward to going to the zoo or the aquarium. I know right?!! These are the two inevitable places every child goes, more than once. But I do not look forward to going to either of them. Let me explain further.
It is in my opinion that the zoo and the aquarium is a waste of money for adults. Let’s start off with the zoo, shall we? First of all, IT STINKS! The smell of animal feces and odor perfumes the entire place. Secondly, you spend nearly $30 to walk around a park that has animals in it, only to hope to see an animal…AWAKE! When I go to the zoo the animals are sometimes not in their area and if they are, they are sleep. What-a-freaking-waste. If I am going to pay nearly $30 to go to the zoo, I want to see the animals do some tricks or, at least, walk around doing whatever it is they do. AND THE AQUARIUM! Don’t get me started. It cost about the same amount as the zoo and basically a big fish tank. You can barely get close to seeing the fish because the nasty snot nose kids are banging on the window with their germ-infested hands. I remember when I gave my husband this philosophy, he looked at me with such pity and proceeded to ask me, ‘What happened to you in your childhood?” and I said, “NOTHING!” As you get older and begin to look at some things through the lens of an adult, which is not always a good thing. That is why I am looking forward to my son reminding me what it’s like to be a kid and to experience the things i know I use to love through his eyes. The one thing I know he is going to love is my cooking and this Creamy Chicken Skillet Recipe is going to be one of the first things I make for him, but right now I will focus on making sure you have a great recipe to feed your family.
To be honest, there is nothing fancy about this Creamy Chicken Skillet Recipe. It is just a super easy recipe that you can make for your family that will fulfill your quota for top comfort food recipes to make throughout the year. I made this Creamy Chicken Skillet Recipe with some delicious mashed potatoes and fresh green beans. At first bite, my husband said, “Damn, this is good as hell!” I love when he give me a compliment like that at first bite. That is how I know I did something amazing, even if I don’t remember what I did at time. This time I do! I made an Instagram Story showing how I did.
