My hubby loves this recipe and request it quite often. I found this recipe many years ago and I have changed it so many times to adapt to my family.

I have used chicken, beef and pork in making these, but my hubby prefers chicken.

I use a deli baked chicken for my recipe as it's easy and ready to debone and get 2 cups from.

How to Make Chicken Enchiladas

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt 2 tablespoons butter or margarine in a large skillet over medium heat; add onion and bell pepper, and saute 5 minutes or until tender.
  2. Stir together onion mixture, chicken, 1 can diced green chiles, and 2 cups shredded cheese. Spoon a heaping 1/3 cupful chicken mixture on 1 end of each tortilla, and roll up. Arrange enchiladas, seam sides down, in a lightly greased 13x9x2" baking dish.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, melt remaining 3 tablespoons butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; whisk in flour until smooth. Cook, whisking constantly, 1 minute. Gradually whisk in chicken broth and milk; cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, 3 to 4 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat, and stir in remaining 2 cans green chiles.
  5. Remove enchiladas from oven. Pour green chile mixture over enchiladas. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly. Serve with desired toppings.
