Oh this flavor combo is delicious! Chicken, potatoes, onion, green chiles, tomatoes, and tons of seasoning. This simple one pot meal is exactly how my family likes to eat on a weeknight!

The other day I was fantasizing about going to dinner at the Mexican restaurant by our house. Since we’re all social distancing that wasn’t happening. But a girl can dream, right?

This Green Chile Chicken & Potato Skillet was my solution and it hit the spot! We went fishing that afternoon and returned home tired but happy. I was able to quickly toss this together with minimal effort. Oh friend, I am all about minimal effort these days. A meal that involves more than one dish is just not a dish I want to make.

While this was embarrassingly easy, the end result was perfectly yummy! Plenty of flavor in very little time. The whole family was thrilled. Mostly me because, again, I only used the one dish.

You can serve this up so many different ways. I enjoyed it just as is but my husband and son loaded theirs until tortillas to create burritos! You can also add this to the top of my Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice for more of a burrito bowl vibe.

Green Chile Chicken & Potato Skillet

Oh this flavor combo is delicious! Chicken, potatoes, onion, green chiles, tomatoes, and tons of seasoning. This simple one pot meal is exactly how my family likes to eat on a weeknight!

Ingredients

Chicken

  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive or avocado oil
  • 1 lb chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Potatoes, etc

  • 2 tbsp olive or avocado oil
  • 1 1/2 lbs potatoes, diced into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 white or yellow onion, diced into 1-inch pieces
  • 14 1/2 oz canned diced tomatoes, I prefer fire-roasted when available
  • 4 1/2 oz canned green chiles
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Optional: chopped green onions or cilantro for garnish

    Instructions

    • Add 1 1/2 tbsp oil to a large skillet. Heat on medium-high. Once oil is hot, add your chicken pieces. Sprinkle with chili powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper. Sauté for 3 to 4 minutes uncovered, flipping occasionally. Chicken should have some browning. Remove from skillet and set aside.
    • Add 2 tbsp oil to the skillet. Once the oil is hot, add the diced potatoes and onion. Sauté on medium high heat, stirring occasionally until sides of potatoes have browned and onion is tender. This can take 5 to 10 minutes depending on your stove and the size of your potatoes.
    • Reduce heat to medium. Add chicken, tomatoes, green chiles, chicken stock, oregano, parsley, and salt to potatoes and onions. Stir. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

    Notes

    Use whatever potatoes you have on hand – yellow, gold, russet, sweet, red-skinned… all are great options!
