Chicken & Potato Skillet

Chicken and Potato Skillet

Yesterday was GORGEOUS! It practically hit 80, (and by 80 I mean 72!) But for mid-April it felt like 80! (I even got a little sunburn!) In the morning Drew and I took our little tyke on Day 1 of week three of my C5K, and a long walk following that! It was to nice not to stay outside afterwards too! A good magazine, some lemon ice water, and my sweet pea crawling all around the back yard..perfect Monday! I can’t wait for today’s beautiful weather as well! ๐Ÿ™‚

I feel slightly bad, like I’m gloating, or something…considering most of the world works indoors all day during the week ๐Ÿ™ Ahh the benefits of working nights! ๐Ÿ˜‰

This two pot skillet is one of the most surprisingly delicious meals Ive made lately! Not that I didn’t expect it to be good, I just didn’t expect it to be THAT good…I don’t think either of us did…although it was adapted from Rachael Ray, so we probably should have known better! ๐Ÿ˜‰

It was refreshing and so flavorful, simple to throw together and a Chicken & Potato Skillet that I will definitely be baking again and again! Enjoy!
