MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 13, 2013

This was so good,and so very easy to put together! I used two six ounce packages of Tyson pre-cooked chicken breast, and I also picked up a can.of mild green chili enchilada sauce, hoping that it was the right.kind, because the taste was phenomenal! I had two friends over for dinner and the three of us consumed almost the entire dish! Next time I will try lightening up the dish domewhat by replacing the sour cream with Greek yogurt, and both of the soups with the lower fat versions. This one is a true winner, straight across the boards!

This turned out delicious and the leftovers taste even better the next day. For those individuals who did not like the recipe, it calls for green enchilada sauce, not green salsa. That may be why the taste was off.

I did not like this recipe. I will not make it again. I thought the taste of the green salsa was too strong, but the rest was pretty bland. I didn't like it.
