Tips from Easy Recipes
For this Quick Chicken Recipe

  • You'll find chicken meat cut into chunks is quick to cook in a skillet. It seldom takes more than 15 minutes as any longer and it'll be tough, chewy and overcooked.

  • So, keep the hand light. Cook the meat on high heat to brown then lower to medium to cook the chicken through.

  • As usual, always add the peas at the last possible moment to warm them through. You never want to over cook them or they'll go mushy.

  • I served this quick meal with couscous mostly because it takes all of 5 minutes to prepare this grain. Pasta and rice will take 20 minutes so if you're in a hurry, couscous is the way to go.  Click here to learn how to cook couscous perfectly and keep it fluffy.

  • Serve it up while warm.

  • This recipe is excellent for freezing, so double the quantities and freeze some for later.
