It’s no secret that I love to cook after this blog is all about cooking. This means my husband gets to try a lot of new recipes for dinner. Recently, he told me these chicken enchiladas is one of his favorite dinners. Because he told me he loves them that much I had to share great recipe with y’all.
This recipe for enchiladas requires cooked shredded chicken. You can bake or boil the chicken to prepare it. I used my instant pot to prepare the chicken. I did this by placing frozen chicken breasts in the bowl of the cooker and then pouring in two cups of chicken broth. Then I sealed the pot and cooked on high pressure for 25 minutes. At the end of the cooking time I released the pressure then moved the chicken to a plate and shredded it with two forks. So easy!
What types of tortillas are used to make enchiladas?
Enchiladas can be made using either flour or corn tortillas. We prefer flour tortillas so that’s what I used to make these White Chicken Enchiladas. Corn tortillas are firmer and do tend to hold their shape better BUT if you’re like us and prefer flour they work and taste great too!
What sides go with enchiladas?
Lot’s of things go great with enchiladas. Side dishes like these are the perfect way to round out your plate.
These White Chicken Enchiladas are always a huge hit with my family and make a great dinner to take to a new mom or friend that just needs a little pick me up because they can be warmed up easily and are really filling!
Happy Cooking Y’all!
