This chicken dinner, made by Kellie from The Suburban Soapbox, is a huge hit with the entire family! Skillet Chicken Recipe is a quick-fix meal for busy nights, made with the one and only Harry & David Classic Pepper and Onion Relish!

When your family has a packed agenda during the week it helps to have a well-stocked pantry so you can throw dinner together in a hurry. My favorite meals are made in a skillet, giving the flavors a chance to blend together, creating a magical dish. And something else that’s magical about skillet dinners, there is only one pot to clean.

Pepper Onion Relish Skillet Chicken Recipe

I tend to keep a variety of Harry & David relishes stocked and ready for simple recipes that are not skimpy in the flavor department. A simple chicken thigh becomes a culinary dream when simmered in the right sauce; and this Sweet Pepper and Onion Skillet Chicken Recipe is the perfect example of how one ingredient can launch a recipe onto the top of your list of family favorites.

I start by simply pan searing bone-in chicken thighs until the skin is a crispy, golden brown then I add a simple sauce where Harry & David’s Classic Pepper and Onion Relish is the star of the show. Everything’s simmered on the stove top until the sauce has thickened, then I top my favorite pasta with the chicken and a huge spoonful of the sauce. Top with a sprinkle of chopped parsley for a dinner that’s worthy of even the swankiest of dinner guests.

Servings 6


  • 6 bone-in (skin on chicken thighs)
  • 1 jar Harry & David Classic Pepper and Onion Relish
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¾ cup chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • chopped fresh parsley (optional)


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Place the chicken in the skillet, skin side down. Cook until the skin is crispy and golden brown, approximately 4-5 minutes. Flip the chicken over and continue cooking an additional 4-5 minutes.
  • In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together chicken stock and relish until combined. Pour the mixture into the skillet with the chicken and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low and simmer for 15-17 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Mix the butter and cornstarch together to form a paste. Stir the butter mixture into the sauce and continue cooking until thickened. Stir in the spinach.
  • Sprinkle the chicken with parsley and serve immediately with pasta, if desired. It’s also fantastic with a side of mashed potatoes.
