I mentioned yesterday that I have been relying heavily on 30 minute meals lately. This chicken burrito skillet was a very happy surprise! I have never had much luck with one pan skillet dinners. Either it’s too much liquid, does not cook well, no flavor….. except for these chicken ranch skillet fajitas. They are so good.

I was honestly not expecting much from this chicken burrito skillet but I was very surprised and happy with how delicious it was and how well it all cooked together. And who can resist that melty cheese on top?!

You start off by first cutting the chicken breasts into 1″ pieces. Cook those up to mostly cooked (until no longer pink) in the skillet pan. Remove the chicken and sauté some rice. Add the remaining ingredients, let it come to a boil and then cover and let simmer.

It’s seriously so simple and can be on the dinner table in 30 minutes.

For best results I suggest using Basmati Rice. It is more expensive but it cooks up perfectly every single time. It’s the only kind I buy now and I have never had a batch of soggy, wet, undercooked rice!

You can also use long grain rice too.

It’s loaded with all your favorite burrito fillings; tender chunked chicken, seasonings, beans, tomatoes and rice. Chop up some tomatoes, green onions, and avocado and serve with some shredded lettuce and sour cream.

It’s so yummy and a family pleasing meal that everyone will love.

We like to eat ours with all the toppings. You could also make tacos out of this or even put this chicken burrito skillet filling inside a tortilla, roll it up like a burrito and eat!

I am also thinking that it would be really good as nachos. Quesadillas. The possibilities are endless. It’s so versatile.

We eat this as a salad type dish. You could also use the mixture inside tacos, burritos, nachos, quesadillas, enchiladas, taquitos, etc. It's so versatile so there are lots of options for serving.
