Jodi's Favorite Chicken Enchiladas

Tammy T


This recipe is for my oldest daughter Jodi who loves to cook also and has been the greatsest helper any mother could have asked for! With six siblings to chase around after, she would always, lovingly pitch in to help me! She is a nurse today and I'am very proud of her! She loves my chicken enchilada casserole, so I will include this in my cook book of fav's. They take a little time to make, but are well worth it!

Lovingly made, lovingly given :)

How to Make Jodi's Favorite Chicken Enchiladas


  1. **** Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    **** I shred my chicken

    **** grease or spray baking dish
  2. Mix the flour with the 1 cup of stock and heat until slightly thickened. Add the cream or half and half, green onion, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Stir in sour cream until well mixed. (use the extra stock if sauce is too thick) Remove from heat.
  3. In a bowl add some of the sauce, about 1/2 cup to the chicken and add green chiles (making sure you reserve enough sauce for pouring on top of the enchilada's) Add salt and pepper to the chicken mix.
  4. ** Just before you dip the tortillas in the cream sauce put the tortillas in the microwave just until they are hot to the touch, about 10 to 15 seconds, and then dip them in the hot sauce so they won't break apart when you roll them.

    Dip each tortilla in cream sauce. Arrange chicken mix down the center of each tortilla. Roll and place seam down in a greased or sprayed baking dish. Pour remaining sauce over enchilada's, then also pour enchilada sauce over all.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes, remove from oven and sprinkle cheddar cheese and black olives over all and return to the oven until cheese has melted and bubbly. Serve and enjoy with your favorite mexican side dishes!
