Winter Meal Solutions #6…Creamy Garlic & Herb Chicken Skillet

This was one of those very simple…very quick…VERY delicious skillet meals.  I only made half for us and it was the perfect amount….used chicken breast because that is what I had in my freezer.  The directions did not say to cover while cooking the rice but I did and it came out perfect!  I loved using the Sea Salt & Herb Seasoning without grinding…it gave the chicken an amazing taste!  I actually did not have enough chicken broth so added a little vegetable broth…I love how easy these recipes are to make your own and use what you have in your kitchen or what your family likes!

Creamy Garlic & Herb Chicken Skillet

2 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
