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.

Bring a taste of Tuscany home with this simple, quick and delicious recipe for Skillet Garlic Chicken with Sun-dried Tomatoes and Pecorino Cream Sauce.

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!

Bring a touch of spring to your kitchen accessories and decor with this practical list of tableware, gadgets and small appliances.

 

I start thinking about salads when heading into the spring season. A few years ago I upgraded my salad spinner to this large capacity stainless steel spinner. I love it! It’s super roomy, works like a charm and the stainless steel bowl can be used separately, making it a multi-function item in my kitchen. If you make a lot of salads, consider this spinner.

 

Here’s a gorgeous Acacia wood 3 piece salad bowl and server set. While your salad would display beautifully in this bowl, don’t limit its use to just greens. It would make a perfect vessel for popcorn, bread, fruit, or even just a decorative display piece when not in use. Also makes a great gift!

 

 

These Mason jar measuring cups and spoons are adorable! The sky blue color signals that winter is over and spring is here. Perfect for measuring dry or liquid ingredients. The material is ceramic and they are dishwasher safe.

 

 

I love my pieces from Le Creuset and my casserole dish is no exception. The stoneware cooks evenly and cleanup is a breeze thanks to the nonstick glazed interiors. I love that this one comes with a lid – perfect for storing leftovers (like my Bacon Brussels Sprouts Au Gratin) in the fridge and reheating the next day. If this lovely palm green isn’t your color, they have a wide range of other colors available from which to choose.

 

You can’t talk about springtime without thinking of eggs and all those Easter egg hunts, right? What in the world do you do with all those leftover hardboiled eggs? Slice ’em and dice ’em! (And make some tasty egg salad, or zesty potato salad!) This particular egg slicer offers 3 different slicing styles. Did you know you can also use egg slicers to slice mushrooms and strawberries?

 


I love this bright yellow earthenware mixing bowl. It’s chip-resistant and has a glossy finish. Comes in an assortment of sizes. Use it for mixing up yummy treats or as a serving bowl. (Serve up some Garlic Mashed Potatoes in it, or some Bourbon Pecan Mashed Sweet Potatoes. Yum!) Microwave and dishwasher safe. Made in Portugal.

 

How cute are these pink stainless steel and silicone whisks? Choose the right whisk for the job with this handy set of 3. If pink isn’t your thing, they come in a variety of other colors, too.

 

 

If you handle a lot of fish, garlic or onions, you might consider this handy stainless steel bar to rub away the odors. Just rub it between your hands like a bar of soap and it will help remove stubborn food odors from your hands.

These beautiful pastel hand-painted salad plates just say springtime to me. These would look stunning on solid color pastel plates or on just a solid white plate. There’s an entire line of dishes that compliment these plates, but I think they are lovely on their own, too.

 

This embroidered table runner has an elegant understated floral and cutwork design which is perfect for a springtime tablescape.

 

 

 

If you don’t already have a stand mixer, consider this best seller in this lovely Lavender Cream color. Swoon! Lots of other colors to choose from if lavender isn’t your thing. You will love having a stand mixer in your kitchen. From dough, to batters, to whipped mashed potatoes, you will use it all. the. time!

 

 

Do you have a favorite gadget, appliance or decor item in your kitchen that just says “Springtime!” to you? I’d love to know, so feel free to leave a comment below!

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

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.
