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!!"
