Mushy Chicken Enchiladas 

As I said previously, Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas are one of my most loved Mexican formulas. They are so natural to make, the heated tortillas have an extremely pleasant crunch (I adore crunchy nourishments!), and this dish is essentially idiot proof! 

I suspected as much! The key to their slight crunch is the heating technique. The gathered enchiladas heat revealed for the initial 10 minutes at a high temperature. At that point, the stove temperature is brought down and the enchiladas are finished with sauce and cheddar, secured with aluminum foil, and came back to the broiler to prepare 20 minutes. The last advance is to evacuate the foil and prepare revealed for an additional five minutes or so to fresh them up! 

We like to top our enchiladas with some additional cilantro, crisp Avocado Salsa, and sharp cream. Include a side of beans or rice and you have a total, flavorful Mexican supper. 

Having a full-time profession here and there makes difficulties for my end of the week energy for cooking and blogging. The cooking and blogging are not the issue, yet the arrangement, arranging, and shopping can regularly take a greater amount of my valuable end of the week hours than I like. I super appreciate perusing through cookbooks and sustenance web journals for motivation and I can totally free track of time doing it!

Ingredients :
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cans (3 cups) enchilada sauce
  • salt

  • Get Ingredients Powered by Chicory

Instructions :
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Pour enchilada sauce into a deep skillet and add the minced garlic; heat to boiling. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides and add to the skillet, nestling into the sauce. Reduce to low heat and cover. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  3. Remove the chicken from the sauce and let the chicken and the sauce cool slightly. Use two forks to shred the chicken (pierce the chicken with one fork and hold it steady while slowly scraping the other fork, prongs faced backwards, away from the other fork).
  4. Lightly coat the bottom of a 9-inch x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  5. Add chicken, 3/4 cup reserved enchilada sauce, and 1 cup cheese to a large bowl. Add cilantro (if desired) and stir gently to combine.
  6. Warm the tortillas wrapped in a damp cloth or paper towel in the microwave on high for 20-30 seconds. Assemble the enchiladas by spooning a heaping 1/3 cup of the chicken mixture along the center of the tortilla. Roll the tortilla around the filling and place into the baking dish, seam-side down. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  7. Brush the tops of the enchiladas with a small amount of olive oil. Place the dish into the oven and bake uncovered for 8-10 minutes or until the tortillas begin to turn golden.
  8. Reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees. Remove the baking dish from the oven and pour the remaining sauce over the enchiladas and sprinkle with the remaining cheese over the sauce. Lightly cover with aluminum foil and return to the oven for 20 minutes.
  9. Carefully remove foil and bake uncovered for an additional 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is golden.
  10. Let stand 5-10 minutes prior to serving. Garnish with cilantro and serve with sour cream or salsa, if desired.
