Quick and Easy Mexican Skillet Chicken

Mexican Skillet Chicken is a quick and easy recipe for a weeknight meal. It has great flavor yet doesn’t require a lot of effort. Top the chicken with avocado or guacamole and serve it with Mexican rice. Give it a try for your Cinco de Mayo celebration!

Mexican Skillet Chicken

With my food sensitivity to dairy, I eat my chicken without cheese. I’ve also recently been diagnosed with a slight sensitivity to onions and was told by my doctor to cut back on those as well. It is just as delicious served without cheese or extra onions. So if you are trying to cut back on calories, you can definitely eliminate the cheese in this recipe!
