Creamy Chicken Skillet {Cookbook GIVEAWAY}

Nov 19

Who loves a delicious, easy dinner and a cookbook giveaway?!? I have both my hands raised high in the air– how ’bout you?

We all know that I have a obsession with Christy Jordan and her blog, Southern Plate! My adaption of her Texas Straw Hat recipe was a success, and so was this Creamy Chicken Skillet.

Creamy Chicken Skillet -- Food Ramblings

I have been plowing through her cookbook for amazing meals that require little to no clean-up….it’s my kind of meal. Well, actually it’s the hubby’s kind of meal since he normally does clean-up when I cook. Either way, we’ve both been loving Christy’s cookbook! I was given Come Home to Supper to review, and if you can’t tell, I think it’s amazing!

Come Home to Supper

The cookbook came out on October 22, and I wish Christy all the success in the world with the sale of the cookbook, and the book tour she is currently doing! It would be an awesome holiday present for someone, but before you go out and buy it, enter the giveaway below and WIN a copy of Come Home to Supper.

    Even though I’m a stay-at-home-mom (and thus won’t be “coming home to dinner,” the idea of having dinner ready in advance (without extra dishes!) is suuuuper appealing! Looks like a fantastic cookbook!

      Yes- I think this recipe is perfect for everyone…especially when little Anna is running around!

  2. We use our cast iron skillets for everything. I’m always looking for new recipes I can make in advance with limited clean up. Thanks for sharing!
