This chicken skillet is packed with flavor. The recipe calls for chicken breasts- which cook beautifully in a skillet.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use chicken thighs?
Yes, but you cook like will decrease and it is important to make sure that you are using a meat thermometer to make sure that the chicken is properly cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F.
Will a non-alcoholic beer work?
Absolutely! I recommend a light beer with an NA beverage or an alcoholic beer.
Can I use a different cheese besides sharp cheddar?
Yes, it will change the flavor profile, but pepper jack or a mild cheddar would be delicious.
I am having trouble with my chicken getting too much color in the skillet, what can I do?
Make sure that you do not have the heat too high. Also, if you are working with a larger chicken breast you may experience this because it is a longer cooking time. You may want to reduce the size of the chicken to make sure all pieces are evenly sized.
Can I use milk in place of cream?
Your sauce will not thicken properly without the cream. If you need to use milk I recommend a whole milk but, again, the thickness of the sauce will be impacted.
