This crazy delicious Cheesy Chicken Tamale Skillet Dinner is all made right in one pan, and has all the authentic flavors of a tamale with just 7 simple ingredients!
I’m in love with one-skillet dinners. When I say “dinner,” what I mean is – it’s got the protein, the veggies, and as an extra bonus, this complete meal packs a fluffy crescent layer topping.
I made a Chicken Tamale Casserole earlier this year and it featured a red sauce. For this cheesy dish I switched it up and went with my other favorite tamale combination; green chiles and corn!
I’m sure you’re wondering how on earth I got the classic tamale flavor into this easy skillet dinner?
I squeezed in a layer of polenta! It’s made with cornmeal which has the same flavor as a classic tamale, allowing you to have this meal ready in less than 30 minutes!
There’s a gooey layer of cheese that mingles with the green chiles and corn to make for an unforgettable experience.
