How do you make One Pan Green Chili Chicken?

Add butter, minced garlic, chopped jalapeño and sauté for 30 seconds. Add almond milk, heavy cream, cream cheese, canned chilies, spices and cheddar cheese. Next, whisk the mixture until the cheese has melted a nice rich cheese sauce has formed.
Stir in cooked shredded chicken until it is evenly covered with the cheese sauce. Top with more shredded cheese and place a lid on the skillet. Reduce the heat to low and allow the mixture to simmer 10 minutes or until the cheese has completely melted.

There are many great side dish options! Serve with a salad filled with cheddar, bacon, ranch and avocado for a refreshing side (maybe try this one with asparagus).
