Creamy Chicken Skillet with Red Pepper and Greens is a simple meal made in one skillet! The meal cooks in under 30 minutes and is made with a creamy garlic basil sauce.


  • 2 tablespoons ghee or butter
  • 2 1/2 pounds chicken thighs, bone in skin on
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 3 ounces  organicgirl Rebel Greens
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth or bone broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon marjoram


  1. In a large skillet add the ghee or butter and cook the chicken on medium heat for 7 to 8 minutes on each side or until brown. Remove the chicken from skillet and set aside on a plate. Add the red peppers, greens and garlic. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
