Today I have a delicious recipe to share that is loaded with flavor, smothered in goodness – Chicken Enchilada Bake! When my 16 year old daughter said, “This tastes like it came from a restaurant!” I knew it was good!
Back in November I shared a Creamy Chicken Bake that has become one of my most popular recipes to date. A reader on Facebook mentioned that she makes enchiladas with a similar sauce. I did a Google search and found Chicken Enchiladas II on Allrecipes.com that had rave reviews and similarities to the sauce on the Chicken Bake. I decided to give the enchiladas a try, changing up the recipe a bit. When deciding what ingredients to use, I remembered a comment a reader left on my Creamy Chicken Bake, stating she might add Rotel to the recipe, which is what I did with this recipe! SO DARN GOOD! Perfect!
1 lb chicken breast, diced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
8 (8 inch) flour tortillas, softened
1 1⁄2 cups grated monterey jack cheese or 1 1⁄2 cups Mexican blend cheese, divided
1⁄4 cup butter
1⁄4 cup flour
1 (15 ounce) can chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
1 (4 ounce) canchopped green chilies
In frypan, cook chicken and onion together in oil over medium-high heat until chicken is just done.
Divide cooked chicken evenly between 8 tortillas; add 1 1/2 tablespoons cheese to each tortilla.
Roll enchiladas and place seam-side down in 9×13″ baking dish that has been lightly sprayed with no-stick cooking spray.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan; stir in flour to make a roux; stir and cook until bubbly; gradually whisk in chicken broth then bring to boiling, stirring frequently.
Remove from heat; stir in sour cream and green chiles; pour sauce evenly over enchiladas.
Top with remaining 3/4 cup cheese (baking dish may be double-wrapped and frozen at this point) and bake at 400F for 20 minutes until cheese is melted and sauce near edges of baking dish is bubbly.
