Skillet meals are my jam these days! I love being able to use one pan for cooking and serving a healthy, nutritious meal. This Pepperoni Chicken skillet meal combines all the yummy flavors of pizza in a veggie-packed, creamy dinner.
I debated on calling this a skillet pizza. The only thing that stopped me was the whole no crust factor and I’m a strong believer that pizza needs a crust of some sort.

A few notes..
- I used tenderloins because they are cheap and cook quickly! You can use whatever chicken you have on hand. You can also sub ground beef for something different.
