easy chicken dinner using only one skillet…
By using only one skillet, there is minimal clean-up. The recipe itself is so easy. Here are three simple steps to follow to make this satisfying gluten-free chicken dinner.
First, season the chicken with all the spices. Then, lightly sear the chicken to give it a tasty coating. Set the chicken aside on a plate.
To the same skillet, add the onions, garlic and bell peppers. Cook them until softened, then add the tomatoes, black beans and corn and cook until heated through. I always cook my black beans in an Instant Pot before I add them to recipes. However, to keep things simple, you can use canned beans in this chicken dinner recipe.
To finish, return the chicken pieces to the skillet, pour the veggies over top and plenty of cheddar cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes, and dinner is ready. Easy right?
This Santa Fe chicken recipe is one of my favourite chicken dinner recipes. Firstly, the Mexican flavours combined with cheese, chicken and veggies baked to perfection are undoubtedly insanely good!
