Tomato Chicken Skillet
"It can be a challenge to provide quick nutritious meals our whole family likes, but this low-fat dish is an all-time favorite," says Tina Meekins of Port Orchard, Washington. "I made up the recipe, but later learned from a friend that it's similar to traditional chicken cacciatore."
