One skillet meals seriously save me during the school year. It makes me feel so accomplished when I can make a delicious, nutritious meal for the family even though we are so busy. This one is so simple too. You just need to find a great sauce with lots of flavor, but no added sugar.

We are huge fans of Rao’s homemade sauces. They are sold at most grocery stores and Walmart. I’ve tried many of the flavor varieties and love them all. If you look at the ingredient list of the marinara sauce, it includes only tomatoes, olive oil, onions, salt, garlic, basil, pepper and oregano. This isn’t sponsored, I just wanted to share my go-to sauce.

I used thinly sliced organic chicken breasts and topped those with fresh mozzarella slices. You could totally use any favorite cheese, though. Wouldn’t gouda be incredible? It is amazing what you can create with your favorite common ingredients!

15 Minute Mozzarella Chicken Skillet

Easy, cheesy, saucy chicken skillet is a delicious Italian-inspired dish you don't want to miss. 

Ingredients
  • 4 thinly sliced chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • about 24 ounces of your favorite marinara (I like any Rao's variety)
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese or 1 cup shredded
  • Optional for serving: chopped parsley or basil + pasta
Instructions
  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet with olive oil over medium high heat. Sprinkle chicken with a pinch of salt and pepper on both sides. Add chicken to skillet and cook for about 3-5 minutes per side or until the chicken is completely cooked through.
  2. If you are planning on serving this with pasta, get the water going and cook the pasta according to package directions.
  3. Preheat the oven on broiler setting. Add tomato sauce to skillet with chicken, when sauce reaches a simmer, lower heat, cover to fully heat sauce. This will only take a few minutes.
  4. Once sauce is fully heated, top each chicken breast with a slice of mozzarella cheese. Place under the broiler for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese gets nice and bubbly and just melts. Top with chopped parsley or basil. Serve immediately with pasta and a salad, if desired.
