Super Awesome Chicken Breasts
Today’s Foodie Friday is my Super Awesome Chicken Breasts. I call it that because that is what my boys call it whenever I make it. They love the seasonings because it brings out an awesome flavor in the chicken. You can either grill these (especially since it’s summer) or cook them in a cast-iron skillet. I LOVE both ways but the skillet seems to bring out more flavor since it’s already well seasoned.
If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, I highly suggest you get yourself one. They’re really not that expensive plus they will last you a lifetime! Plus they are so versatile. You can use them on the stovetop, on the grill, camping, baking in the stove, and pretty much anywhere you can give it a heat source you can cook it on!
Anywho, on to the recipe! You can get all these awesome ingredients (organic even) for an amazing price from Thrive Market. Thrive Market has the best priced organic products and they get shipped right to your door. No need to waste gas and run to the grocery store, yay!
