Garlicky Chicken with Onions recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

While I was making the Chicken Vegetable and Potato Soup last week, I tasted the chicken after it has finished in the skillet. It was delicious all by itself! So, I made the chicken again this week, as a meal on it’s own.

After the chicken finished, I used this method to quickly saute some squash in the same pan with the remaining juices. I’m frequently surprised by the way that just a few simple everyday ingredients work together to turn typically boring chicken into something so tasty.

I am sure to be making this again in the future for simple, quick and easy meals. Served with potatoes or over rice, this was enjoyed by every member of my family.
