Lemon Skillet Chicken

I can’t believe it! It’s the first day of school, I think I’m going to cry! Yes, I’m one of those crazy moms that miss their kids when they go to school, even if it’s my 5th and 6th child.


Both of my girls got up before the alarm went off and they were super nervous. My Andie and Lisa are both starting new schools this year and so every scenario of things that could go wrong, have been dancing through their heads all night long.


This also means the crazy schedules are about to start and I need to get a game plan ready.

I want my family to eat healthily and have delicious things that remind them of home but time is always a big issue and it’s so easy to get in the habit of running through McDonald’s drive-thru and ordering from the value menu!


I’m in love with the one-skillet meals (+one plate and bowl). So easy to throw together but they are so good!!!!!!! This is a perfect meal for any day of the week and fancy enough for Sunday dinner. Good luck moms!
