  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and cook onion and garlic until almost translucent, about 5 minutes. Add chicken, Italian seasoning, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can add or substitute frozen peas, broccoli, or northern beans. I like to add the beans!
