Santa Fe Skillet Chicken
This delicious Santa Fe Skillet Chicken will become your weeknight go-to dinner. This dish includes chicken breast, hearty black beans, red onion, red bell peppers, garlic, and Cheddar cheese for an easy meal with filling and satisfying power. I also like to add taco seasoning and cayenne pepper for a spice kick.
Make sure you let the chicken breast come to room temperature. Take it out of the fridge 20 to 30 minutes before cooking. As the cold chicken cooks unevenly and tends to be tough. When the chicken is cooked, its juices run clear. Or use a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. Serve this flavorful chicken as it is, or over rice, top with chopped cilantro and you are ready to go.
To make the Santa Fe Skillet Chicken, you will need the following ingredients:
