Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Enchilada

16 oz Fresh Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
2.5 cup Old El Paso Sauce Enchilada Mild
1 cup, shredded Cheddar Cheese
12 serving Mission Foods, Mission Flour Tortillas, Soft Taco, 8 Inch

Recipe Directions for Chicken Enchilada

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Pat chicken dry and season with salt and pepper.

  2. Combine the chicken and enchilada sauce in a medium saucepan & simmer for 10-15 minutes over medium-low heat. Then flip the chicken over, cover and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes until chicken reaches 160-165 degrees with an instant-read thermometer.

  3. Remove chicken from pan and shred into bite-sized pieces. Combine shredded chicken, 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce and cheese in a bowl.

  4. Lightly coat both sides of 6 tortillas with vegetable oil and place on a baking sheet. Bake until tortillas are soft & pliable, about 2 to 4 minutes.

  5. Quickly place tortillas on a flat surface and place 1/3 cup of the chicken mixture into each one. Tightly roll each tortilla around the chicken and place in a 913 baking dish. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the remaining 6 tortillas.

  6. Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees. Pour 1 more cup of enchilada sauce over the tortillas and sprinkle with the cheddar cheese. Cover with foil and bake for about 10 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 3 to 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
