Thanks to my father, I'm a big foodie who's been cooking and baking since I was a young girl. Cooking is a passion that brings me joy.

Chicken and Mushroom Skillet


Definition of Skillet Cooking

A frying pan, fry pan, or skillet is a flat-bottomed pan used for frying, searing, and browning foods. It is typically 200 to 300 mm (8 to 12 in) in diameter with relatively low sides that flare outwards, a long handle, and no lid.

Chicken and Mushroom Skillet

I learned how to cook from the best of the best. My loving father taught his five kids how to cook at a very young age. The art of cooking has become one of my biggest passions in life. The best lesson I've learned in my cooking endeavors, is not to be worried about exact amounts or work too hard. When I look for recipe's, I take what I like-add ingredients that sound good to me, and throw out the rest. I believe cooking is healing and should be fun. Hopefully, this chicken recipe I tweaked will be enjoyable for you and your family.

Chicken Skillet Recipe

I found this chicken entrée by looking through several online recipe's. I learned to cook as a young girl from my loving father. He taught me not only how to cook, but how to tweak recipe's you find, and make them your own. That's how I came up with this delicious chicken skillet recipe.

*Note* I usually serve dinner rolls and green beans with this chicken dish.
