Quick and Easy Chicken Fiesta Skillet

This quick and easy one-pan chicken fiesta skillet can be on the table in just 30 minutes. It’s a healthy and satisfying meal, perfect for busy weeknights. You can easily pair it with yummy sides like rice and refried beans, or even a fresh salad.

What I love about this chicken fiesta skillet meal is that it’s so easy to put together. It’s quick because you’re making it all in just one pan. Whether you use a cast-iron skillet like this one, or a stainless steel skillet, this dish comes together with minimal work.

Here’s how it goes down.

  • First, prep your veggies and herbs. Slice and dice the onion and peppers and set aside. Chop the cilantro and set aside.
  • Second, prep your chicken. Slice it into bite-sized chunks and set aside.
  • Third, prep your canned and/or frozen veggies. Rinse and drain the black beans. Do the same for the corn if you’re using canned corn instead of frozen.
  • Fourth, have all your spices at the ready.
  • Fifth, fire up the skillet and get ready to roll!

From here, it’s as simple as adding the onions and peppers to skillet and letting them soften a bit before adding the chicken and spices. Let the chicken brown a bit and then throw in the beans and corn. Cook a bit, taste, re-season if necessary and you’re practically done!

Easy Chicken Fiesta Skillet

Between the stages of cooking and browning, you might want to grate some cheese, prepare an avocado, slice a lime or two, if you want to serve those with the fiesta skillet. You might want to serve this over a brown rice, so factor that in if it’s something that your family likes.

Don’t wait for Cinco de Mayo to make this – throw it together tonight and be sure to keep it in your quick and easy rotation of tasty dinners to make!

Easy Homemade Organic Salsa

This easy and healthy organic homemade salsa recipe uses all fresh ingredients and comes together in just 20 minutes. Amp up the heat factor by adding more jalapeño. Keeps well in the refrigerator, so make a double batch for later!

Homemade Organic SalsaThis post contains Amazon affiliate links.

This easy homemade organic salsa is a must for all your Mexican or Tex-Mex dishes, but we like to keep it around to snack on with our favorite tortilla chips. I’ve also been known to use it as a salad dressing. (ahem). What? It’s just that good.

What I love about it is that it’s all natural and fresh. I like to buy organic tomatoes, peppers, onions, limes and cilantro for this recipe, that way I know I’m really making a super healthy salsa. Your local farmer’s market is a great place to find fresh tomatoes and peppers if you don’t grow them yourself, or have a neighbor who likes to share their bounty with you. 🙂

Homemade Organic Salsa

The salsa ingredients spend a little time in the sauté pan (I use my cast-iron skillet) to really bring out the flavor as well as help them blend a bit more. To chunk it up a little further, after the ingredients have cooled, I use an immersion blender like this one to make it less chunky. You could also throw it in a blender, but I like the immersion blender for two reasons: 1) less cleanup (hooray!) and 2) I have more control over how thin or chunky I want the salsa to be.

Homemade Organic Salsa

Serve it up in a pretty bowl and enjoy!

  • 2-3 T. fresh organic cilantro, finely chopped
