Simply Chicken Skillet

I have been having the best time playing with my brand new 11 inch covered skillet.  Just ask my husband, I was like a kid in the candy store with a charge card.  It is amazing, and the meals I have been throwing together in it are going over BIG at our place.

This one was a riff on my earlier goulash recipe, and would be delicious on Monday Night Football TV dinner nights.  A hearty crowd pleaser, this was done entirely in the skillet in 20 minutes start to finish, and even the 3 year old had seconds.  Now that is a Touchdown!  Enjoy!  Lydia

Chicken Skillet Dinner

 3  diced boneless skinless chicken breast
 1   28 oz can diced tomatoes with chilis
 2  large yellow onions, minced
 1/2 pound of elbow macaroni
 4  cups water
 1 jar salsa con queso
 1 jar salsa, heat index to taste (we used Medium)

  1. Add chicken, pasta, onion, tomatoes and water to the skillet.  Cover and simmer for 15 minutes until cooked through (chicken moist without pink spots, pasta al dente).
  2. Drain the cooking liquid, and add the salsas.
  3. Toss to coat and simmer another 5 minutes to warm the sauce through.
Serve hot with bread and butter and salad for side dishes.  Makes 10 generous servings.
