How to Make Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. boil chicken w/whole onion. The onion is for flavor. Remove from broth. Save broth to mix with cream soup.
  2. When chicken has cooled, remove from bones and cut into manageable pieces.
  3. Soften tortillas in a small amount of oil in a hot pan. Immediately place on a dish to ready for assembly.
