How to make Easy Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Step 1: Prepare the oven by preheating it to 375 degrees convection or 400 degrees conventional.

Step 2: Dice or shred the chicken into smaller pieces. You can use up to 1 to 2 pounds of skinless boneless chicken breast.

Step 3: Dice one medium onion.

Step 4: In a large frypan, add one tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the diced chicken and onion. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the chicken is done. You can also check if the chicken is cooked by using an instant-read thermometer. When it reads 165 your chicken is done. They can also be cook in the oven if preferred.

Step 5: Meanwhile, spray a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with PAM. For the tortillas to be much more flexible, heat them in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. Use eight 8 inches tortillas.

Step 5: Now to assemble the enchiladas, add about 1/4 cup of chicken, 1/4 cup of onion, and about two tablespoons of Monterey Jack cheese on each tortilla. Don’t put them in the center though but at the 1/3 mark of the tortilla, then, roll tightly. Make sure to place the tortillas seam down in the prepared baking pan.

Step 6: Melt a half stick of butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, add in 1/4 cup of flour. Whisk and cook for a few minutes. Then pour one can of chicken broth and stir continuously until thickened.

Step 7: Once the mixture is thickened, remove from the heat and add in 1 cup of sour cream and 1 can or 4 ounces chopped green chilis.

Step 7: Generously pour the mixture over the assembled enchiladas. Sprinkle 1 cup of Monterey Jack cheese (or any preferred cheese) on top.

Step 8: Place inside the preheated oven and bake 20 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling.
