Salsa Chicken Skillet is the perfect one-pan meal! With chicken, a creamy sauce, tortillas and lots of cheese this will quickly become your busy weeknight go-to.
This is something that I’ve been making for years. It’s really quick, just a few ingredients and all cooked in one pan. Did I mention that it’s fast? Did I mention it’s delicious? Did I mention that kids and adults both will love this meal? Did I mention how good this is even though it may not *look* extra appealing?
There really wasn’t a way, no matter how I staged this meal, to look anything but sloppy. BUT HOW DELICIOUSLY SLOPPY IT IS!
Everything in this dish melds so well together so perfectly that presentation will be the least of your worries if you make this for your family.
How to make Salsa Chicken Skillet:
Start by dicing the chicken and onions. Add oil to a skillet over medium/high then add chicken and onion. Start to saute. Cook chicken through until no longer pink.
Next, cut up the tortilla pieces like a pie.
Once the chicken is cooked pour the flour over the top, stir to combine with chicken. Then add the chicken stock and ranch dressing.
Bring to a boil and let the sauce thicken.
Add your tortillas to the top of the skillet and stir to combine. Cook for around 3-5 minutes.
On top of the chicken & tortillas pour the entire jar of salsa on top. Don’t stir.
Place cheese on top. Cook until cheese is melted or put this under the broiler to melt the cheese.
Serve with some lettuce and sour cream. And here you are….
