Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Traditionally, I have been a beef enchilada girl. I think chicken takes too long to cook and gets too dry, I decided to mix up our menu a little more lately and went looking for a Chicken Enchilada recipe that may work. Unfortunately, my husband is a picky eater and I had to make my own up. Luckily, it turned out awesome! Let me know if you have any ideas to make the recipe better.

As with most of my recipes, I am always looking for shortcuts to cut down on time. I decided to use a rotisserie chicken instead of cooking my own. This saves time, and ensures the chicken is nice and juicy. 

1. 1 Rotisserie Chicken
2. 1/2 of a White Onion, Chopped
3. 1/2 a Container of Sour Cream
4. 2 Cups of Mexican Style Cheese
5. 1 Tbsp Dried Parsley
6. 1/2 Tsp Dried Oregano
7. 1/2 Tsp Ground Black Pepper
8. 1/2 Tsp Salt
9. 1 15 oz can of Tomato Sauce
10. 1 Tbsp Chili Powder
11. Tortillas
12. 1 can of Enchilada Sauce

1. Preheat Over to 350 degrees
2. In a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat place torn up chicken, onion, sour cream, 1 cup of cheese, parsley, oregano, and black pepper.
3. Heat until cheese melts then stir in salt, tomato sauce, chili powder, and if you want you can add a pinch of garlic.
4. Roll even amounts of mixture in the tortillas and arrange in a rectangular pan.
5. Cover with enchilada sauce and one cup of cheese.
6. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes.

Well, I don't know how they taste, but they sure look yummy! If you want to cook more chicken you should get some kind of stoneware container with a lid. You can stick some chicken strips or breasts in there and microwave for 15 minutes and it's cooked all the way through. I sold Pampered Chef and that was a big selling point for our stone pieces. It really works!

That looks absolutely delicious! I love enchiladas and I have to say that I have also been a beef enchilada girl. I'm thinking of making it this Friday for my boyfriend, perhaps I should try it with chicken too =)
I'm also following you now.
