Creamy Skillet Chicken

Servings 6 people


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves 6-oz.
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup white wine or use white grape juice with a splash of cider vinegar
  • 4 cloves garlic pressed
  • 1 cup thinly sliced onion
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 1/2 cups evaporated milk at room temperature


  • Heat the oil in a large, deep skillet with a tight-fitting lid over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook for 2 minutes per side or until golden brown.
  • Add broth and wine (or juice/vinegar) then add garlic and sliced onion over the top. Reduce skillet heat to medium-low then sprinkle flour, salt, and pepper evenly over the sliced onion top (use a sieve to tap the flour if you’re uncertain you'll avoid lumps).
  • Cover and simmer chicken for 40 to 45 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare rice. When chicken is cooked through, remove from skillet, set aside and keep warm.
  • Whisk evaporated milk into the pan juices; cook for 10 minutes or until sauce is reduced to desired thickness.
  • Return chicken to the skillet and turn to coat in the sauce; heat through. Serve over hot rice.

VEGETARIAN: Use non-breaded faux chicken patties and adjust cooking time as needed. Use vegetable broth.
KOSHER: Substitute coconut milk for evaporated milk.
