This was tasty. I made a mistake and stirred the soup into the chicken mixture, but as I always slit manicotti shells anyway to fill them, I figured the soup in the filling would leak out and mix with the sauce. It pretty much did, but I'd like to make this the "right" way and see if it's that much different. My son isn't a fan of onions......if the onion cooks and is tender , he really doesn't notice, but the onions in this were crunchy. Next time I might sauté them in a teaspoon of butter before adding them to the mix. All in all, it was good, but I think some of the suggestions here might enliven this dish and make it better.
Make this for family & guest, they loved it! Will be making this again. Tanks!!
Delicious!!! One of my new favorite dishes!!
Loved this. I was lazy and didn't want to cook noodles so I used tortillas and made regular chicken enchiladas. This now replaces a previous recipe as my standard chicken enchilada recipe. I did use the suggestion of aeg2t and used salsa verde in the sauce and loved it.
My husband LOVES this dish and he is very picky. However, I don't bother stuffing the manicotti, I use lasagna sheets instead. I layer the two mixtures as if I was making lasagna. Far less hassle and extremely tasty!
