Skillet Chicken with Vegetables

Skillet Chicken with Vegetables

When making Skillet Chicken always brown the chicken pieces first so all the juice remains inside and the chicken is always moist and tender. You can also use sun-dried or fresh tomatoes for this recipe but I prefer the canned tomatoes for this because of the added juice.
