Enchilada Chicken Recipe

We enjoy Southwestern flavors and this six-ingredient recipe never gets boring. The chicken sizzles in the skillet before getting baked and comes out tender and juicy every time. —Nancy Sousley, Lafayette, Indiana

MY REVIEW

I substituted the salt-free seasoning with McCormick Grill Mates Fiery 5 Pepper Seasoning as that is what I had on hand. I served this with the the Easy Mexican Rice recipe also on this website. My whole family enjoyed this dinner.

MY REVIEW

I really liked this recipe. Even my husband and my 4yr old daughter loved it too! The only thing different I did was added a little more enchilada sauce (cause I like it) and saved the cilantro for after. But it was so good!! Definitely a keeper.

I overcooked the chicken and so it was dry...next time I'll keep a closer eye...I'm sure it would have been very good if I hadn't been distracted! It was also SUPER EASY!!

It was easy and the chicken was very moist. I thought it might be too spicy but not at all.
