Quicker Comforting Chicken Recipe

Quicker Comforting Chicken Recipe

This recipe uses canned potatoes and frozen baby carrots to speed up the recipe. Along with quicker-cooking chicken breast, the canned and frozen vegetables reduce the simmering time, so this dinner can be on the table in less than half an hour.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

"The family really loved this. Used fresh carrots and baby potatoes, both boiled before adding them to the skillet, and half and half."

"a favorite"

"I just made this tonight for my family and made only two not so big substitutions: fresh baby carrots instead of frozen and canned sliced potatoes instead of whole. The only reason I switched these two was because that was what I had on hand. We loved it! I will totally be making this again! It cooked up fast and easy, smelled great! My family ate it all up with no leftovers! Oh, and I cut my carrots in half because they were fresh so they would cook faster."

"my all-time favorite one-dish meal! I use fresh baby carrots, cut the whole potatoes in half, and use fat-free evaporated milk and 1/4 cup of butter to make it lower in fat. Excellent!"

"Absolutely creamy and delicious. I used fresh whole baby carrots the first time I made it instead of the canned ones and sliced fresh potatoes. 2nd time I didn't have any carrots so I went with double potatoes, that was yummy! This is a wonderful recipe. Kids and hubby loved it too. Will make this often!"
