I recently purchased a cast iron skillet, and it has changed my life! That might be a bit dramatic, but if you love being [barefoot] in the kitchen, then you understand my excitement over a cooking tool. I highly suggest you get one. This Keto Chicken Florentine Recipe  is perfect for skillet newbies, and is a very easy skillet chicken recipe you can make for dinner.

What the heck is keto? Keto (or ketogenic) is a fancy way of saying something is low carb and high fat. You stay away from things like bread and pasta (oh the horror!), and stick to meat, oils, greens, nuts, and other low carb foods.
