Meet your new favorite winner, winner, chicken dinner!
I am so happy to have found yet another way to make skillet chicken that my family likes. My kids pick the green olives off of this but otherwise, we are okay. The topping on this Skillet Chicken with Feta, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, and Olives adds so much flavor to an otherwise bland and boring skillet chicken. The feta melts a bit and mixes in with the sun-dried tomatoes to make a bit of sauce on top. If you want to make more of a sauce just add some chicken stock to the pan and scrape up the bits on the bottom.
I am happy to have a quick dinner fix because we have been super busy in doggie training with Cooper. If anyone had told me how much trouble a dog would be, I might have made a different decision. Oh wait, they did tell me!
Training is necessary for this guy because I have no idea what I am doing, did not grow up with dogs and never even liked dogs before Cooper came into my life. I had no idea it was so hard and so time-consuming to get a dog to behave. He is wearing a shock collar on a very low setting and my job is to get him to look to me for everything...Can I jump on you, mommy? No, sit. Can I jump on the counter mommy? No, sit. Can I nibble on the hand of one little 9-year-old mommy? No, sit.
I can do this right? It's monotonous and requires and extreme amount of patience and time, neither of which I have. I know, in the long run, it will pay off so I am committing myself to the next
four six weeks of training. If you have any advice for me, I'd love to hear it in the comment section below.
I hope this gluten-free skillet chicken makes your busy life a bit easier this week. That's my goal here: to make quick, easy & healthy dishes that you can utilize to make your life easier. Let me know how the recipes work for you in the comments section.

I'm sending you all good vibes and wishes in your doggie training - I apologize if I missed it - but how old is Cooper? About 4 years ago, I ended up with a puppy - I'd never had a puppy before - just older rescue dogs and WOA - training was nuts - but, fortunately, my daughter took over and did a fantastic job with our Ollie - if you need me to send her, please let me know - all I ask in return is a pan of this! 🙂 Loving the sundried tomatoes+feta+olives action you've got going on here!
I would love for your daughter to help train Cooper! ? I'm just not good at it - he's 1 1/2 now.
