One-Pan Chicken Nacho Party Recipe

Easy Chicken Skillet Nachos are as tasty as the pictures look, friends! I am working with Sabra (you know, the hummus folks) today and I’m so excited! I made this recipe with football, parties, and entertaining in mind. I love these easy skillet nachos for a few reasons. One, they are delicious and they look fabulous. Two, they take very little time to make which makes them perfect for a party. Three, who doesn’t love nachos!?! They are a total crowd-pleaser. Making a huge batch of nachos in a skillet means that you can serve them right out of the pan; serving them alongside Sabra’s Farmer’s Ranch, guacamole, and salsa means that you have very little prep to do yourself.

Seriously though, this was delicious! I hope you give it a try! I just cooked an extra chicken breast a day or two in advance while I was making chicken for a different meal. The day I wanted to make these nachos I just chopped up the cold chicken breast and added a little taco seasoning and water. You could use just about any shredded meat or skip it altogether if you’d like. If you don’t have a large cast-iron skillet you can also use a large rimmed baking sheet (though the skillet looks fabulous!). The Sabra dips were really fun and easy to use. I highly recommend their products!
