Chicken Skillet Dinner

Cheesy Low Carb Chicken Skillet Dinner

April 12, 2024

If you’re looking for a quick, low carb, high protein dinner for two, this Chicken Skillet dinner with carrots and zucchini is your dish! It’s cheesy, salty, and full of flavor!

As recent empty nesters, my husband and I make a lot of our own meals. I’ll cook dinner for a larger group on Sunday’s (here’s some of those meals), but the rest of the week, my husband is on his own, and so am I.

It’s worked well for us, as our meals are fairly simple. Usually just a protein and vegetable, that we would put together in under 15 minutes.

But, this dinner I made last night for the both of us, as my husband was outside doing yard work all day, and I had an idea for a flavorful skillet of chicken, zucchini, and carrots.

He was delighted! In fact, I may end up writing down more dinner recipes for two if you want to see more!

I have to say, this is one we will be making again. It was husband approved and SO satisfying. ALSO, this entire dinner took less than 15 minutes to prepare! (even with cutting veggies)
