Southwest Chicken Skillet

Southwest Chicken Skillet

Bite into a fiesta of flavors in this south-of-the-border quick and easy skillet.



  1. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in oil for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink in center.
  2. Stir in vegetables, beans and salsa; reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender.
  3. Sprinkle with tortilla strips and cheese. Cover and cook for about 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Success: Crisp tortilla strips add extra crunch and are easy to make - just pop them in the oven while preparing the skillet. Bake strips on ungreased cookie sheet in 425 degrees F oven 4 to 7 minutes or until crisp.

Serve With: Add orange wedges or pineapple chunks to quickly finish this meal.
