If you visit Primavera Kitchen often you know that I love skillet recipes. I mean they are absolutely my favorite dishes because it’s always so easy to make and cleanup is a breeze.

The skillet recipes we love the most are the Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet, Zucchini Lasagna Skillet (hello low-carb goodie) and the Asparagus Sweet Potato skillet (hello delicious paleo recipe) to name a few. If you haven’t tried them you definitely should. They are all delicious and healthy too.

So today I’m sharing with you this Mediterranean Chicken Skillet that is about to become your favorite quick dinner recipe. I promise, you won’t be disappointed. It’s quick to make, I mean you will need less than 30 minutes and this chicken is so flavourful that if you think chicken recipes are blah, you will be very surprised.

In this recipe you will use a ton of spices such as paprika, coriander, onion powder and black pepper. On top of these spices, this Mediterranean Chicken Skillet is loaded with juicy diced tomatoes (they help the chicken stay very moist), black olives and of course feta cheese. Mm… Delicious! This is definitely the perfect meal for a quick and water-mouthing dinner.

Tips to make this Mediterranean Chicken Skillet Recipe tastes great:

  • Use organic chicken or free-range chicken because they are grown with no hormones and receive no antibiotics. Better for your body.
  • Add just a pinch of crushed red pepper because it can be very spicy for some people. When the dish is ready, you can taste and see if you need to adjust the seasoning.
  • Don’t bake the chicken for more than 25 minutes otherwise it will be dry.
  • The quality of your diced tomatoes does make a difference to this dish. In my opinion, the best tomatoes out there are the San Marzano tomatoes because they have just the right amount of sweetness. They totally are worth the price.

How can I serve this Mediterranean Chicken Skillet Recipe?

You can serve it with:

  • Fluffy rice
  • Quinoa
  • Roasted potatoes and vegetables
