We enjoy this skillet chicken over mashed potatoes, but you can certainly roast them instead. You can also use rice instead of potatoes or omit it altogether. The chicken and broccoli are delicious as is.

Skillet Chicken Potato Meal Cooking Tips

  • Make sure to pound your chicken breasts to an even thickness before cooking. This helps them cook more evenly and ensures they stay juicy.
  • Don’t overcrowd the skillet when cooking the chicken. If you add too much chicken at once, it won’t cook properly and may end up steaming instead of browning.
  • Feel free to customize this recipe with your favorite herbs and spices. If you aren’t a fan of dill, try thyme, rosemary, cilantro, or parsley. These are all great additions!

Chicken Potato Meal FAQ


Q: Can I use frozen broccoli instead of fresh?
A: Yes, you can definitely use frozen broccoli if that’s what you have on hand. Just make sure to thaw it before cooking and adjust the cooking time accordingly.

Q: Can I use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts?
A: Absolutely! Chicken thighs would work just as well in this recipe. Just adjust the cooking time as needed since thighs may take a bit longer to cook through than breasts. Pork loin is another good option.

Q: Can I make this meal ahead of time?
A: While this Skillet Chicken Potato Meal is best enjoyed fresh, you can definitely prep some of the components ahead of time to make dinner time easier. Cook the chicken and broccoli up to a day in advance and store them in the fridge. Then, simply reheat them in the skillet and add the sauce before serving.
