What can be easier than making some chicken enchiladas? How about making a chicken enchilada casserole skillet? Weeknight dinner is done in 20 minutes!
I love making enchiladas when I don’t know what to make for dinner. It’s one meal I know my son will eat entirely and ask for seconds.
This takes an easy to make dinner, and cut the prep time in half.
I used shredded chicken for this recipe that I had left over. But when I’m in a rush and don’t have time, I’ll pick up pre-cooked shredded chicken from the grocery store that works just as well.
Just make sure you drain the excess moisture to keep this from getting too runny.
With just a few simple ingredients you have a chicken enchilada casserole ready in less than 20 minutes, with enough food to have leftovers the next day!
Doesn’t get much easier than that!
