Chili Cheesy Skillet Chicken

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

This recipe is great because it utilizes only 1 large pan. Make sure you use a pan that has a lid. My husband says this tastes a lot like Chicken Enchiladas without the tortillas.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Brown chicken about 2 minutes per side.
  3. Combine salsa, chilies and cumin in a bowl. Pour mixture over chicken.

  5. Mix cheeses in a bowl.
  6. Divide cheese mixture over chicken, cover and cook 1 minute, just until cheese melts.
  7. When you plate this make sure to scoop up any of the melted mixture that is on the bottom of the skillet to serve over the chicken.
  8. Serve with Sour Cream, Spanish rice, salad and tortilla chips.
