Chicken Enchilada Skillet

This recipe is another Pinterest find.  I love enchilada sauce so I've wanted to have it for awhile.  D agreed so he made it.

I think this is a base recipe, and it could use some tweaking.  D didn't use rotisserie chicken (which we suspect was used because we couldn't get the calories remotely near the ones called out.).  He sauteed a pound of chicken breast with some Southwest Seasoning.  Also next time I'm going to check the tomato seemed to have sugar in it.  Maybe just use 2 cans of Rotel and be done with it.  And add some cilantro.

I think having again, with some tweaking would work.  D said it was simple to make.

We had with a salad.

Let me know if you tweaked it or what. I liked it better for 2 days of left overs. But I definitely needed cilantro (which I love).

This was a hit! I cooked the chicken with some chipotle seasoning I had laying around (Weber brand) and cayenne. I also added a small can of green chiles and excluded the tomato sauce like you mentioned.
