Whole30 Lemon Chicken Skillet with Broccoli (Paleo, Low Carb)

This Whole30 lemon chicken skillet with broccoli is my favorite quick 30 minute meal. Skillets are perfect for easy one pan meals that don’t take all night and have easy clean up. The lemon in this Whole30 and Paleo recipe makes it light and refreshing and just adds a ton of flavor.
