As a Mom, you tend to have a few weeknight dinner recipes up your sleeve that are very quick to make and the whole family loves. This was one of my Mom’s go-to dinners, or at least as one of her kids looking back, I would say this would be one that I remember eating a lot. As we grew older, my sister and I learned how to make this ourselves for the family too.
Chicken, broccoli, cauliflower and carrots are a perfect match. I think most kids like all these vegetables. All 5 of my siblings and I loved this dinner. It’s really nice having the meat and vegetables cooking at the same time and there are less dishes to wash, since it’s all prepared in one skillet. The aromatic creamy sauce goes along perfectly with the chicken and vegetables and soaks into the pasta or rice too. It’s creamy, yummy and pretty healthy too.
By the way, you can use frozen vegetables instead of fresh ones too. The texture won’t be as great, but for a really easy weeknight meal, you can make a point to have all the ingredients on hand in your freezer, and you can whip it up in no time.
