Ultimate Recipe Swap: Mexican Chicken Skillet
I recently tried this new recipe and it is so yummy that it will become a regular at our dinner table.
Even better, it's quick to make and healthy, too!
Mexican Chicken Skillet
2 chicken breast halves, cut in 1/4" strips
1 Tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 bell pepper, sliced
1 onion, sliced
1 cup bottled salsa
1 cup cheddar cheese
8 whole grain tortillas or hot brown rice
Over medium heat, in a skillet, start cooking chicken strips in the olive oil. When the chicken is about half-way cooked(5 minutes), add garlic. Cook a few more minutes and add pepper and onion. Stir and cover to mix flavors.
Be careful to not over cook chicken. When done, drain chicken through a colander. Return chicken mixture to skillet and over low heat, add salsa and stir. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the mixture, cover the pan and simmer until cheese is melted, about 3 minutes.
Serve on warmed tortillas or hot brown rice with sour cream.
