Pizza Chicken Skillet – Delicious and Low Carb!

Pizza Chicken Skillet

Yesterday was one of those days that I just could not decide what I wanted for dinner. I knew that I wanted something that was somewhat low-carb and light, but I had no idea what it was. There were some chicken breasts in the fridge that I needed to use, and so I started thinking. I absolutely love cooking in my cast iron skillet (if you don’t have one, you NEED one!), and I had some fresh mozzarella that I grabbed at the store as a complete impulse buy, so I decided to base a recipe on those three things, and this Pizza Chicken Skillet was born!

I called this a pizza chicken skillet because it has the toppings that I love on my pizza: peppers, onions, cheese and pepperoni. You can make this recipe your own by adding whatever you love on your pizza. Almost any vegetables or meats would be great when added to this. Pair this chicken with a side salad for a delicious, light and healthy meal!

These are the ingredients that you will need for this Pizza Chicken Skillet:

  • Olive oil
  • Onion
  • Bell pepper
  • Garlic
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Crushed tomatoes
  • Italian seasoning
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Chicken
  • Fresh mozzarella
  • Pepperoni
