Easy Chicken Enchiladas Recipe

The Easy Chicken Enchiladas Recipe presents a delicious and convenient option for a quick dinner, requiring minimal time and a handful of ingredients. The key components include chopped chicken breasts, red or green enchilada sauce, red bell pepper, chopped onion, sliced mushrooms, green onions, tomatoes, jalapeño pepper, flour tortillas, Mexican cheese, and sour cream.

To begin the preparation, olive oil is heated in a frying pan, and the chicken is sautéed until almost done, creating a flavorful base. The red bell pepper, onion, and mushrooms are then sautéed until soft, after which the chicken is reintroduced to the pan, and the heat is turned off. Sour cream is added to the mixture, providing a creamy and rich texture.

To assemble the enchiladas, a baking dish is sprayed with cooking spray, and half of the enchilada sauce is poured into the dish. Flour tortillas are filled with the chicken mixture and a generous amount of cheese before being rolled and placed in the baking dish. The remaining enchilada sauce is poured over the top, and the enchiladas are adorned with chopped tomatoes, jalapeño, and green onions.

The assembled enchiladas are then baked in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until soft. Additional cheese is sprinkled on top and melted to perfection. Despite appearing a bit watery initially, the enchiladas are allowed to cool, allowing the sauce to thicken. The dish is best served with homemade salsa or store-bought salsa, offering a quick, easy, and satisfying option for dinner. The Easy Chicken Enchiladas Recipe is particularly favored for its simplicity and efficiency in providing a delightful meal.
