Ready for a quick and easy dinner everyone is sure to love? This Skillet Salsa Chicken is a super quick dinner perfect for even the busiest of nights (like tonight).
It all starts with the skillet…
Like I mentioned above this Skillet Salsa Chicken is the perfect quick fix dinner. It starts with browning the chicken, then adding in the salsa, then roasting it for a little bit and then topping with cheese and voila you are done. Quick & easy!!
The key to this dish is getting your skillet hot in the beginning so the chicken gets a great sear on it, this help build the flavor and keep all the juices in the chicken.
I used my everyday nonstick cookware (you can find it here) but you can use a cast iron skillet if you want, just make sure your skillet is oven safe as you will be roasting and broiling for a bit.
If you want to keep it simple you can just use the salsa with some chicken stock and call it a day, but I did add in a little extra flavor with some chopped onion, garlic and lime juice for just a little extra oomph. You could also add in fresh cilantro or even pico de gallo for even more yum! That is the beauty of this dish, it is super versatile while still being quick & easy.
Don’t forget the cheese!
To finish off, this already delicious dish, you throw on a little cheese (you don’t need much) and put it under the broiler for a few minutes to let it get all ooeey gooey and a little browned.
I used a classic mexican blend but you can use whatever variety of shredded cheese you would like, such as Pepper Jack for a little extra spice or Monterey Jack.
Time to make dinner!
