Chicken Breast Meals are often a go to on weeknights. They are quick and easy and one skillet is always a plus – less clean up! But this doesn’t mean it has to be boring, fry or lacking in flavor.

I am telling you this lemon dressing makes the perfect quick marinade! Well I am using the term marinade lightly cause it’s really more like a baptism at my church on Sunday morning. Dunk ’em under and twirl them around a little to be sure they get good and coated and then back up again! Well, really my pastor honestly doesn’t hold them under long and he certainly doesn’t twirl them around!

Whew, wouldn’t that be fun to see! Ya know, gotta be sure they really got baptized and all 😉

But in all seriousness, the flavor of this chicken skillet is amazing and you don’t have to leave it soaking!

Step 3.   In the same bowl used to marinate chicken, pour in potatoes, and toss to coat in remaining dressing. (Salt and pepper to taste). Transfer potatoes to skillet, pour in the stock, and cook with chicken. Cover with lid and cook chicken for about 6 to 8 minutes per side or until juices run clear. This will depend on the thickness of the chicken breast.
