Try this quick and easy goat cheese skillet that is sure to melt away those winter blues. We made this dish with organic chicken and substituted rice for riced cauliflower to make for a healthy keto-friendly meal.

 ½ lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
 ¼ tsp salt
  tsp pepper
 2 tsp olive oil
 1 cup fresh asparagus (1-inch pieces)
 1 garlic clove, minced
 3 plum tomatoes, chopped
 3 tbsp 2% milk
 2 tbsp herbed fresh goat cheese, crumbled
 cooked rice or pasta (substitute with riced cauliflower for a keto option)
 Additional goat cheese (optional)
1

Toss chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute chicken until no longer pink, 4-6 minutes. Remove from pan; keep warm.

2

Add asparagus to skillet; cook and stir over medium-high heat 1 minute. Add garlic; cook and stir 30 seconds. Stir in tomatoes, milk and 2 tablespoons cheese; cook, covered, over medium heat until cheese begins to melt, 2-3 minutes. Stir in chicken. Serve with rice. If desired, top with additional cheese.
