One Pan Mexican Chicken Skillet
- 4 Chicken Breast
- 1 Red Pepper Cored and Sliced Lengthwise
- 1 Green Pepper Cored and Sliced Lengthwise
- 1 Yellow Pepper Cored and Sliced Lengthwise
- 1 Yellow Onion Sliced
- 2 Tbsp Taco Seasoning
- 1 1/2 Cup Salsa
- 1 1/2 Cup Shredded Taco Cheese
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In an oven safe skillet (I used my cast iron), add 1 Tbsp olive oil and heat over medium high heat.
Once hot, add peppers and onion and cook until peppers begin to blister, about 5-7 minutes. Once cooked, remove and set aside.
Next, season both sides of the chicken breasts with 2 Tbsp of Taco seasoning, distributing it evenly between the 4 breasts.
Add remaining 1 Tbsp of olive oil to the pan, once hot, add the chicken.
Allow the chicken to sear on both sides, about 2-4 minutes per side.
Once seared, remove from heat and add the peppers and onion mixture back to the pan. Top with salsa and place into the oven.
Bake for approximately 30-45 minutes until the chicken reaches 165 degrees (note: cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of your chicken). Half way through the cooking process, remove and top the chicken mixture with cheese.
Once the chicken has reached 165 degrees, remove and serve with your favorite toppings!
