How to Make Chicken Enchilada Skillet Pie – Step by Step
I absolutely love meals that are THIS easy to make. It only takes about 30 minutes to make, you could make the entire meal in pan (less dish washing), and it’s easy to save leftovers. Chicken Enchiladas Skillet is the perfect weeknight meal!
- Preheat the oven to 350°F, and heat up some oil in a skillet (this helps crisp up the pre-cooked chicken).
- Add the chicken, enchilada sauce, taco seasoning, and cilantro into the skillet and stir.
- Reduce heat to a simmer and let everything cook together for about 2-3 minutes (again, this is for pre-cooked chicken; if you’re using raw chicken, make sure to cook it before you get to this step, or heat until it’s fully cooked).
- Assemble the enchilada pie in another skillet. Place a tortilla (we’re using the big burrito size tortillas) in the skillet, top with half of the chicken mixture, and then layer in the cheese.
- Next, add another tortilla, the rest of the chicken, and more cheese.
- Top it with the third tortilla, the enchilada sauce, and the rest of the cheese. Then add some cilantro.
- Place the skillet pie in the oven and cook for 20 minutes at 350°F.
To serve, I like to top it off with cotija cheese, diced tomatoes, sour cream, and avocado. Yum!
