Easy Dinner with Canned Chicken
Don’t you love pantry dinners? You know the ones. Those dinners you can make on the fly when you haven’t had a chance to go to the store, and your fridge is bare. My pantry is always packed full of canned goods like chicken broth, diced tomatoes, tuna, a few types of beans, and corn just to name a few. With those “cantry” staples, I can always figure out something to whip up for dinner. It’s the same situation when it comes to this delicious, spicy enchilada with the canned chicken recipe!
Next time you’re at the grocery store, grab a couple of cans of everything you need for this chicken skillet recipe to keep on hand for busy days. (If you’re like me, pretty much every day is a busy day!) This chicken enchilada skillet is so good, and no one will guess that you didn’t slave away in the kitchen to make it.
How To Make Chicken Enchilada in 20 Minutes
Before I get to the recipe, I should warn you that it is very spicy with the jalapeños. That’s just right for me but not so much for kids. If you want to make it mild, just use diced green chiles instead of jalapeños, and be sure to use mild enchilada sauce. Now, let’s get this Chicken Enchilada started!
