Loaded Mexican Chicken Skillet

Don't you just love a good skillet? I know I do and so does my family. I've made plenty over the years but never one with a tex-mex flair. A few weeks ago I found a recipe on Betty Crocker.Com for a Loaded Mexican Chicken and Potato Skillet. Sounded right up my ally, so after tweaking some ingredients to make it more weight watchers friendly the end result was fantastic!

Lightly spray a large skillet with cooking spray. Spread half of the potatoes on bottom of skillet.

In small bowl, toss chicken with chipotle seasoning, and cooking sauce; spoon chicken over potatoes.

Sprinkle half of the bacon, green onions and cheese over chicken. Spread remaining potatoes on top; sprinkle with remaining cheese and bacon. Cover skillet tightly with foil.

Bake covered 1 hour.

Top skillet with sour cream, chopped tomato, and green onion. Enjoy!
