When I see the word skillet in a recipe title, it is music to my ears. That word is magical, I swear.
Skillet dinners are one of my favorite meals to make, and this chicken enchilada skillet was delicious! Talk about a quick and easy meal. I threw this together in no time the other night and we inhaled it. Full of flavor and so, so fabulous!
This skillet dinner is a simple, excellent short cut for enchiladas. I used a rotisserie chicken for this recipe which always makes things a whole lot easier. . .not that this meal isn’t already easy enough. You basically dump a few things in a skillet and voilà —dinner is on the table!
Top it off with a dollop of sour cream and some fresh cilantro and you have a fantastic, comforting, delicious meal!
