These creamy chicken and peas are are in only 18 minutes! This is an easy and healthy kid-friendly weeknight dinner. Serve over rice or pasta!



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into ¾-inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 cups frozen sweet peas
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • ¼ cup chopped chives
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken in a single layer, sprinkle with salt and cook, stirring once or twice until browned, 4 to 7 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle flour over the chicken and stir to coat. Add broth, increase heat to high, and bring to a simmer while stirring.
  3. Stir in peas and return to a simmer, stirring often. Cook until the peas are heated through, the chicken is cooked through, and the sauce is thickened, about 2 to 3 minutes after returning to a simmer.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in sour cream and chives. Serve hot with fresh pepper on top.
