Skillet Honey Garlic Chicken (AIP/Paleo)

Skillet Honey Garlic Chicken (AIP/Paleo)

One of my most popular recipes is a super simple slow cooker recipe that I came up with in the early days of my transition to the autoimmune protocol, slow cooker honey garlic chicken. It is easy to see why it is popular, it is so simple and uses ingredients that most of us keep in our pantries all of the time. I love my slow cooker and it can often be a great way to save time in the kitchen, that being said it isn’t always possible to get dinner ready 8 hours ahead of time either because you can’t or, let’s be honest, because you forgot. With that in mind, I decided to come up with a skillet version of this slow cooker favorite so that it’s yummy flavors can be enjoyed regardless of how much time you have in the kitchen. This is a great weeknight dinner and it sure to be a crowd pleaser.
