As the weather gets cooler, the more outdoor opportunities to dine safely and quite frankly — warmly — is diminishing.
Lockdown in Virginia is looming as the COVID cases keep rising so I’ve stocked up our garage freezer with a bunch of Farmer Focus chicken and other goodies to help hold us from having to run to the grocery store often.
Since I envision we’ll be dining in a lot more, this garlic herb butter chicken skillet is a great date night in meal.
Garlic Herb Butter Chicken Skillet
This skillet chicken dish made with Farmer Focus boneless skinless thin sliced chicken breast is incredibly easy to put together and has outrageously luxurious flavor.
The butter and herbs coat the chicken so well and the sauce from the pan juices all mixed together gives it such a velvety and flavorful taste profile.
You can make your own herbed compound butter and keep it in the fridge to use in a variety of meals including this one!
We’re finishing up the year with this garlic herb butter chicken skillet being the fourth and final 2020 dish that I’ve partnered up with Farmer Focus for.
If you haven’t noticed by now, I am a loyalist to Farmer Focus chicken. I am BEYOND THRILLED to have found it at my local Costco and they’re definitely expanding into more stores as I’m always surprised to see their packaging in the cases!
Farmer Focus packaging allows you to find the family farm that your chicken came from! The Farm ID is on every single one of their packages and all you have to do is head to their website and type it in.
Organic, free-range, and high quality
Finding the family farm that your chicken came from is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to quality chicken from Farmer Focus. Each farm is certified humane by two 3rd party organizations and certified non-GMO. This means you, as the consumer, get the best organic chicken (in my opinion) on the market!
