Skillet Chicken Enchilada Pasta

Well, we are in full-summer-break mode. Sleeping late, watching TV until lunch, playing Wii all afternoon, riding bikes, going to the park,hanging out with friends  Fun stuff.

Of course, the children are doing that stuff. I am doing laundry, continually fielding requests for snacks and breaking up arguments about who stole the soccer ball.  Seriously, it's been a pretty nice summer break. Low-stress and tremendously fabulous weather. Kids and I are having a pretty good time.

Enter this very easy and very stress free dish for a quick dinner!

Perfect after a busy day of summer fun. This isn't too much of a structured recipe, just something that is tossed together to make your life a little bit easier, great  for using your leftover pasta or chicken.
