Skillet Cheese and Salsa Chicken


  • 16 oz penne pasta, uncooked
  • 2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into bite size pieces
  • 1-1/4 cups thick and chunky salsa plus 1/4 cup for cheese mixture (my favorite is Ortega)
  • 1 cup corn, thawed if frozen and drained if canned
  • 1 green bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 8 oz Velveeta Mild Mexican cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped, for garnish


Cook pasta al dente as directed on package.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet on medium high heat and add chicken. Cook and stir 2 minutes. Stir in salsa, corn and peppers. Bring to boil. Simmer on medium low heat 10 minutes or until chicken is done, stirring occasionally.


Meanwhile, melt cheese with remaining 1/4 cup salsa in a small saucepan.

Drain pasta. Add pasta to chicken and mix lightly. Evenly top with melted cheese and mix lightly again.

Garnish with green onions and serve.
