Surprise surprise it’s me posting today! You thought I was going to drop off the face of the blogging-planet post-defense didn’t you? I am taking a couple days off to spend with my family that came into town, but I am back to my regularly scheduled posts. Just make sure to call me Dr. Erin, mmk? Gotta start putting this PhD to work, and hopefully get a job in the process.
A serious amount of gratitude goes out to all the awesome guest bloggers who helped me out during a very intense time of my life, and I hope everyone enjoyed their visits. I also hope you appreciate simple yet delicious meals because that’s what I’ve got for you today. My defense may be over, but the work is not! If for some strange reason you feel like making a meal that takes longer to prepare, feel free to browse my recipe index. But otherwise, continue on for a creamy, healthy, and easy chicken recipe.
This chicken is cooked in a cast iron skillet and then topped with a Greek yogurt sauce that is perfect paired with your favorite side of veggies or pasta. I served mine with roasted balsamic tomatoes and asparagus from Prevention RD’s cookbook which I shared recently. A couple of you wanted to know the recipe for the chicken I mentioned in that post, and here it is to please your belly. Picture was taken in haste pre-defense so cut me a break on that one, I was stressed and hungry.
