Chicken Enchilada Pasta Skillet recipe is an easy to make dinner all in one pot for easy clean up from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

I've been working on a skillet revolution lately because I hate always having a never ending pile of dishes growing in the sink plus, some nights dinner done in under 30 minutes leaves me jumping for joy.

Chicken Enchilada Pasta is a super easy one skillet dinner recipe using chicken breast, but hamburger could always be substituted. It's a perfect dinner for a busy weeknight in under 30 minutes.

The one thing I always loved about Hamburger Helper was the one skillet to clean, and how easy it was to make.

No one should have to fill the dishwasher multiple times per day, unless you have 10 kids then I am so sorry for the dishes and laundry, I can only fathom how crazy this drives you. Just the thought makes me want to pull the hair out of my head.

 Chicken Enchilada Pasta Skillet is made totally from scratch, easy to make, no canned enchilada sauce needed, and tastes amazing!

 It's a perfect combination of two of my favorite things pasta and enchilada's all in one perfect dish.

  4. Thank you for inspiring my dinner for tonight! I had leftover Chicken cutlets and was trying to figure out what to make, when I opened your email! Luckily I had most of the ingredients on had and only had to swap out Black beans & replace it with Kidney beans and used tomato sauce in place of tomato paste! THIS MEAL IS JUST AS GOOD AS IT LOOKS AND IS JUST AS EASY AS ADVERTIZED!!
