I love Chicken Enchiladas and so does my family and friends. I use chicken breasts, they have the most flavor and are very tender. The chicken will melt in your mouth.
I cook the chicken breasts in the crock pot. This reciepe is always requested for me to make. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. :)
I love leftovers because I can freeze some if I am quick enough if not they are devoured the next day.
