Chicken & Lime Tortilla Skillet Recipe

Sharing is caring!


If you’re looking for a quick and easy recipe that the kids will love, the Chicken & Lime Tortilla Skillet is for you! This recipe is super easy to make, and your kids will thank you! I usually make this with regular tortilla chips, but decided to mix it up a bit with the lime. I’m so glad I did because it completely changed the recipe’s taste… and it’s better in my opinion, but hey, I love lime. 🙂

Chicken and Tortilla Chips

Chicken & Lime Tortilla Skillet
