I imagine I am not the only one who gets a little manic around the holidays. Sometimes I need a reminder to just slow down and take it easy! I do have an index of easy peasy recipes I use on crazy days. One of them is this Easy Chicken Enchilada Skillet Recipe with only 4 ingredients! I love enchiladas but sometimes the rolling does me in time wise, this is an easy way to get around it and it’s only 4 ingredients!
The pan I use is one of my favorite cooking pans and it’s under $2o on Amazon. I use it a few times throughout the week for different dishes including this one! It’s the perfect size for layering the chicken, cheese, tortillas etc a few times. My tip is to cook this on a medium to high heat, if you get it to hot the sauce will burn at the end of the pan.
Chicken Enchilada Skillet Recipe
|Prep time||20 minutes|
|Cook time||15 minutes|
|Total time||35 minutes|
|Meal type||Main Dish|
- 12 Corn or flour Tortillas (Small)
- 1 can Enchilada Sauce (28 Ounce Can (You may want yours a little saucier or a little less saucier))
- 2 cups Cooked Chicken (Shredded)
- 2.5 cups Shredded Cheese
|Have all of your ingredients divided out before starting.|
|Layer a skillet pan starting with approx 1/2 cup sauce, then 2-3 tortillas, topped with a 1/2 cup cheese and `/2 cup of chicken.|
|Continue layering your skillet with all of the ingredients being sure to top with the remaining cheese and sauce.|
|Cover and cook on the stove top on med-high heat for approx 12-15 minutes (until the tortillas are cooked and the cheese is melted).|
That is it! I would say the process that will take the longest is just cooking the chicken! You could always omit the chicken and or add different herbs, spices and/or vegetables. I like to add fresh onion and top the dish with cilantro.
Pin for later!
