Looking for a quick chicken meal to make on those busy days? This tasty Skillet Garlic Chicken with Sun-dried Tomatoes and Pecorino Cream Sauce can be ready in just 30 minutes!

I used a cast-iron skillet for this meal,(I love this one with a lid!) but you can also use a stainless steel skillet if you prefer. Just make sure it’s a large enough with high enough sides to hold all the ingredients without spilling over.

Prepare your chicken by cutting the chicken breasts into large bite-sized pieces. Set aside.

Heat olive oil and garlic in the skillet and sauté until medium brown. Remove garlic with a slotted spatula and discard. You now have lovely garlic-infused olive oil left in the skillet. Add the chicken to the skillet, season with a little salt and pepper, and cook until browned on all sides. Remove chicken from the skillet and set aside.

To the skillet add half & half and chicken broth; stir carefully to incorporate all the yummy browned bits left in the bottom of the skillet.

About the cheeses: Pecorino Romano is a well known and distinctive Tuscan cheese made from 100% sheep’s milk. Although used interchangeably in recipes with the more mild Parmesan, it’s not the most ideal swap due to Pecorino’s stronger flavor.

In this recipe, I’ve balanced an equal amount of Parmesan with the stronger flavor of Pecorino Romano to create a delicious balance of the two. Feel free to play with the ratio to get the flavor that suits you.

Add oregano and grated cheese to the skillet and whisk until cheese is completely melted. (I use this cheese grater.)

Reduce heat and add sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. Simmer until tomatoes soften and spinach wilts. Add the chicken back in to warm it up; let it simmer for just a bit, then serve up this glorious Tuscan dish and enjoy!

How To Make 90 Second Keto Low Carb Bread In A Mug

Here’s the easiest recipe ever on How To Make 90-Second Keto, Low Carb, Gluten-Free Bread In A Mug. Not only is this bread healthy and quick to make, but it is easily customizable if you want to season it up with herbs or cheese.

How To Make 90 Second Keto Low Carb Bread In A MugNote: This post contains Amazon affiliate links.

If you’re looking for a keto-friendly, single-serve bread recipe, this How To Make 90 Second Keto Low Carb Bread In A Mug recipe is it! It’s gluten-free, carb-free and tasty, too, and ready in just *90 seconds via the magic of your microwave oven. (*Depending on the wattage of your microwave oven, your milage may vary. You may need to add additional seconds to get your bread texture just right for you.)

Bonus: you can mix it all in the same container, depending on how big your vessel is. I tend to be messy, so I actually melt my butter in the vessel I’ll be using, in this case a ramekin, and mix the rest up in a small mixing bowl or cereal bowl that’s just a tad larger. This way, I can stir the ingredients quickly without having to be too careful so as not to spill stuff over the edges. If you’re a neat stirrer or mixer, then use the all-in-one approach!

A note on vessels to use: mugs are great, but use a large or jumbo one like this to make sure the ingredients have room to “bake” and spread out enough to get a bread-like texture.

I actually like to use a ramekin like this one because it comes out nice a widely round and is easy to slice.

So here’s how it comes together: (See full recipe ingredients and instructions down below)

I’m using the two vessel method here because I’m a messy mixer:

  • Melt butter in your mug or ramekin; set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, lightly beat egg with fork.
  • Add almond flour (I use this one), baking powder and salt to egg and mix with fork.
  • Pour melted butter into mixture and stir well so that there are no lumps.
  • Pour mixture into buttered mug.
  • Microwave for 90 seconds.
  • Remove bread from mug (carefully; it’s hot!) and set it vertically and slice down the middle creating two pieces of bread.
  • Slather with topping of choice (I like cream cheese!) and enjoy.

Here it is just sliced and ready to eat or decorate, or become a sandwich, or stick it under the broiler for a few minutes to toast the top and then add jelly or honey…you get the idea…the possibilities are endless!

How To Make 90 Second Keto Low Carb Bread In A Mug

My favorite topping, though, is softened cream cheese. I also like to add a little Herbamare seasoning. So good!

If one slice of this amazing bread fills you up, just refrigerate the other half for another time.

Note: this recipe is easily customizable. Add a sprinkle of cheddar cheese and a dash or garlic powder to the mix before cooking, or add Italian seasoning for a different taste. Experiment and have fun with this versatile recipe.

  4. Before you pour the melted butter into the flour and egg mixture, make sure the mug or ramekin is coated with butter on the sides. You can do this by gently tipping the mug/ramekin slightly to ensure the butter has a chance to make contact with all sides.

  5. Pour the butter into the flour and egg mixture and stir well so that there are no lumps.

  6. Pour mixture into buttered mug,

  7. Microwave for 90 seconds.

Sheet Pan Sweet Potato Hash With Eggs

Sheet pan meals are a time saver and this Sheet Pan Sweet Potato Hash With Eggs recipe is no exception. This is a savory twist on the classic eggs and potatoes bake, perfect for breakfast or dinner.

Sheet Pan Sweet Potato Hash With EggsNote: This post contains Amazon affiliate links.

This Sheet Pan Sweet Potato Hash With Eggs delivers a gorgeous display of color thanks to the rich orange of the sweet potatoes, the purple and red of the potatoes and onions, and the vibrant green of the Brussels sprouts. The ingredients are naturally gluten-free.

Nestled among the lightly seasoned veggies are the perfectly yolked eggs, all roasted on a sheet pan to bring out the savory flavor of each ingredient.

Sheet Pan Sweet Potato Hash With Eggs

Consider using two half baking sheets or a larger three-quarter size sheet pans to allow enough room to spread the vegetables out in a single layer without overcrowding. This will allow them to roast evenly without steaming.

Sheet pans come in several sizes. The most common – the half sheet pan – measures 13” x 18,” while the larger three-quarter sheet pan measures 15” x 21.” The three-quarter size works well for this recipe because it allows extra room for the vegetables to be spread out in a single layer without overcrowding. I like this set of multi-sized sheet pans.

I also recommend using baking mats on the sheet pan instead of parchment paper for this recipe. Not only will everything roast more evenly and not burn, but it makes clean up a breeze ~ win-win!

Sheet Pan Sweet Potato Hash With EggsPerfect egg yolk tip: crack each egg into a small bowl to ensure that the yolk is firm and remains intact, then carefully transfer onto the sheet pan. Repeat this process, one egg at a time, until all eggs are on the pan.

  • 6 large eggs

  5. Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until the egg whites are set and the yolks reach the desired level of doneness.

  6. Remove sheet pan from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!
