How To Make Creamy Chicken & Pumpkin Recipe

Apart from perfectly searing a cut of steak, you can make lots of other dishes with a cast iron skillet. This piece of cookware is great for pan-frying, sautéing, and even for making the perfect meals in the oven. So if you’re looking for some to try, you’ll love this collection of chicken skillet recipes! First, you can revisit American favorites like Tex-Mex or Southwest-style chicken skillet. Or, explore flavors from a totally different continent with Mediterranean or Tuscan renditions. Check them out below:

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
Total: 45 minutes



  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook until browned on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

  3. In the same skillet, add the diced onion and minced garlic. Cook until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.

  4. Add the pumpkin puree, chicken broth, heavy cream, dried thyme, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Stir to combine.

  5. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened.

  6. Serve the creamy chicken and pumpkin over rice or mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
