One pot Mexican Chicken and Rice is exactly the dinner you're looking for on a random Thursday. Quick, easy, and full of flavor!
Do you ever get home from a long day at the office and not know what you’re going to make? I know most people think that food bloggers are always full of these brilliant meal ideas and are never stumped as to what to make for dinner. This is very much not the case.
I make dinner 6 nights a week (we treat ourselves to a meal out once a week) and out of those 6 nights most likely 3-4 of those nights I'm clueless as to what to make. However, if I can plan well, some weeks I know exactly what we are eating every single night of the week! Those are fantastic weeks in my book.
The other week I came from work in a haze from the craziness I endured at work that day. I wanted a simple one pot meal. I looked in my refrigerator and in my pantry to see what I had on hand. I had some poblano peppers and to be honest I was in the mood for Mexican food. I decided I would make a skillet Mexican chicken & rice meal. Now I know what you might be thinking… this ingredient list is as long as the state of California. Yes, it may be, but it’s actually much easier to make than you might think!
My husband was also grateful for the few dishes he would have to wash that night.
I paired this one-pot skillet Mexican chicken & rice recipe with my favorite classic guacamole recipe and my homemade salsa. If you don't feel in the mood to make guacamole and salsa feel free to use the store bought variety or top the skillet with sour cream or eat it as is.
I served the skillet right on the table and let everyone serve themselves! This made for a little less work for me! So the next time you’re stumped and not sure what to make for dinner you must try my skillet Mexican chicken & rice recipe!
