The Kitchn: Pepperoncini chicken is so good, I’ve made it for dinner 3 weeks straight

Patty Catalano, on

Every week I prepare a one-pan chicken skillet dinner, leaning on flavors my family loves like garlic butter, French onion, and harissa orange. This week I served a creamy Italian chicken dinner inspired by a jar of pepperoncini peppers. The briny, slightly spicy flavor of pepperoncini is the perfect way to highlight a light, silky Parmesan cream sauce and golden strips of tender chicken. The best part is that the whole meal comes together in just 30 minutes. Here’s how to make it.
