This was incredibly flavorful. I saw it and thought it sounded good and I knew I could substitute low fat ingredients to make it lower in calories and fat. I did use 30 oz of enchilada sauce (3 cans) and wish I hadn't because it was extremely soupy but still extremely delish! I wasn't sure what to have as a side dish...I did buy 2 chickens...ate some as a meal the night I bought it...tore off the rest for this recipe and made it the next day...doing this made it even quicker to prepare when I got home from a long day at work. In case you're a weight watcher I made this with light everything and I made it 8 servings instead of 10 and it equaled 12pp.
I made this a couple of weeks ago. I didn't pay attention to the amount of chicken I needed thinking 1 rotisserie chicken would be enough. It wasn't. Needed 2 to get 4 1/2 cups. So, it was kind of soupy. But, it was really good and I will make it again with the right amount of chicken this time.
Very easy! Perfect comfort food.
After reading prior reviews, I decided to use 12 tortillas - I WISH I HADN'T. I think the key to this recipe is using CORN tortillas. Corn tortillas are super flavorful and they soak up a lot (most) of the enchilada sauce. I think next time I'll try using 10 corn tortillas. Other than that, I stuck to the recipe exactly, and the results were spectacular. I wasn't sure if I would need to be buy 1 or 2 rotisserie chickens (I've never used one for a recipe, so I had no idea how much meat I could get from one). I ended up getting 1 rotisserie chicken from Walmart, and it ended up having enough meat for this dish. This recipe was easy and the flavor was SO GOOD!!! I would highly recommend this dish to anyone.
This is a wonderful recipe, amazingly tasty just as is, but reviewers seem to like adding stuff they like so I am telling you that chicken tenders marinated in TofH's Herb Italian Dressing and grilled added another layer of flavor.
