Heavenly Chicken Enchiladas

Filling and great served with a salad; I use chopped leftover chicken or precooked thawed grilled chicken strips (found in freezer aisle.) I make a giant batch since all my kids are older and they eat seconds. This makes 2 pans or 12 servings. For small families, cut ingredients in half. I make one pan with flour tortillas and one with corn tortillas. Corn tortillas will be smaller so make a few more than eight to fill the pan.
