(Not Tex-Mex Style) Chicken Enchiladas
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 8 to 10
- regular size corn (or flour) tortillas ... i think corn is always the best.
- 1 can(s)
- (10-12 ounce can) boneless chicken breast chunks (or you can stew a large boneless, skinless breast and shred)
- 1 can(s)
- cream of chicken soup (10 ounce can)
- 1 can(s)
- green tomatillo enchilada sauce (see "side note" below)
- 1/2 c
- diced sweet onion (try to avoid using very strong onions)
- 8 oz
- shredded mozzarella, swiss or jack cheese
1Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open cans of cream of chicken soup and green enchilada sauce and mix together until smooth. Open can of canned chicken breast chunks and empty the liquid only into the sauce mixture and stir in.
2Soften tortillas in the microwave for a few seconds to make them more pliable. With your hands, pull apart and shred the canned chicken chunks and place a small amount (about an ounce) in each of the tortillas. Spoon in about 1-2 Tbsps of the sauce on top of the chicken and then spread a little of the shredded cheese inside each enchilada. Roll up as tightly as possible.
3Arrange the enchiladas not too tightly in the bottom of a 10" X 10" baking dish or similar size, sprayed first with non-stick spray. Pour sauce over all, making sure sauce gets in between and all around the enchiladas. Sprinkle diced onion over all and then cover with the rest of the shredded cheese.
4Bake uncovered in 375 degree oven for about 45 to 55 minutes. The cheese on top should be a little brown and bubbly. Let sit on top of the stove for about 10 minutes, then serve hot. Best to use a wide spatula so they don't fall apart when serving.
5Recommend serving with hot Tex-Mex style refried beans and Mexican rice. You can garnish with a handful of diced green onion tops (optional). You can also serve with sliced black olives and with a dollop of sour cream.
6SIDE NOTE: If you prefer to do this, instead of using green enchilada sauce, buy a can of crushed tomatillos and add 3 or 4 tablespoons of your favorite salsa to it for flavor. You could also add a small can of mild diced green chilies if you want a little extra 'spice'. Then combine with your Cream of Chicken soup. I have done it either way and both are very good.
Bon Apetit' Y'all!!
