Tired of making the same thing over and over for dinner? I know I am. It may seem that there are a few favorite dishes, and they seem to be on repeat every week. While you know that they taste good and you love them, every once in a while it's a good idea to change up your dinner menu. I am not entirely good at menu and meal planning. Except for Taco Tuesday which we try and do weekly, everything else is usually "what I feel like eating". However, that doesn't always work out, chicken dinners on the other hand always seem to do well in my household. I have never had a "oh I don't like this" whenever chicken is on the menu. There are so many ways that you can make chicken, whether that be fried, grilled, bbq'd, so many ways and of course you can do your own thing. If you have a cast iron skillet, you can make this dinner in less than 30 minutes and best of all it's absolutely delicious. Give our cilantro lime cast iron skillet chicken dinner a try.
Cilantro Lime Chicken Skillet

Lemon pepper seasoning
salt and pepper
Lay your thin chicken breast out on a cutting board and season liberally with salt and pepper and lemon pepper seasoning
Using a large sauce pan, add olive oil to coat the bottom
Add your chicken to the oil and cook each sides for approximately 8 minutes. Check to make sure that there is no pink on the inside of the chicken. If thoroughly cooked remove pan from the heat and place to the side
Cut your eggplant, squash, zucchini vegetables into 1 inch thick slices then cut in half, add to your sauce pan and toss often.
Dice your jalapeños and remove seeds. Cut your baby tomatoes in half. Add your tomatoes and jalapeños to your pan
Add your chicken back to the pan and cook for another 5-7 minutes.
