As usual – when my fridge is getting low at the end of the week – I dig in the freezer for some sort of protein and I find – chicken breasts. Then I hit Pinterest to find SOMETHING to make. This time I came across this Cheesy Sausage Potato Skillet on my “recipes I want to try” board. Larry isn’t a fan of sausage so I decided to mix it up and use chicken.
While that was cooking – I threw some biscuits on this new baking stone that I got from Emile Henry. Now it seems silly to break in something this fabulous on canned biscuits – but you have to start somehow. This stone actually can go on/in the grill, freezer, oven and even microwave! From 0 to 500 degrees – this ceramic covered stone can do it all.
And there you have it – a Cheesy Chicken & Potato Skillet – voila!
How did it turn out? Well – pretty darned good! Since I diced the chicken before cooking it – the chicken was a bit dry. It would have been better with sausage – but if half the family won’t eat it – then chicken will do. I might try marinating the chicken first next time. Everything else was great – and I have to say – when I took leftovers to work the next day – I took mostly potatoes – they were divine! The nice thing about this recipe is you can really customize it to what you have and what you like – so go for it!
Cheesy Chicken & Potato Skillet (inspired by From Cupcakes to Caviar)
- 1 lb chicken breast, diced into bite-sized pieces
- 4 red potatoes, diced into bite-sized pieces
- 1 pepper, diced (I like orange)
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 tablespoons BBQ/Chipotle seasoning mix
- 1/4 cup your favorite bbq sauce
- 1 cup shredded CoJack cheese
- Over medium heat, cook everything diced (chicken, potatoes, pepper & onion). (Feel free to add what you like – mushrooms would be good).
- While that’s cooking, sprinkle with your seasoning mix. Stir often but leave it cook enough to get the chicken browned. (Takes 20 minutes to cook the potatoes.)
- Add the BBQ sauce and stir, cook a few more minutes.
- Top with shredded cheese – turn off the heat and let the cheese get melty and gooey!
