Creamy Pepperoncini Chicken Tender Skillet
Creamy Pepperoncini Chicken Tender Skillet is a delicious, hearty, tangy, and creamy dinner that is great over rice, vegetables, pasta – or on it’s own!
Pepperoncinis are one of my all time favorite things to eat – I can eat a whole jar in one sitting if I really wanted to.
I love the spicy, tangy zip of pepperoncini peppers – they are so delicious, and pair perfectly with so many different meals!
This skillet dinner is perfect for a low carb diet – or if you’re not watching carbs, it is luxurious and decadent over pasta or rice.
