Chicken Enchiladas are one of our family favourite Friday night dinners, I think I say this all the time when I share a mexican recipe, but we truly do love anything and everything mexican in our household. I love that this recipe is so quick and easy to prepare, with the option to poach your own chicken or skip this step and save a few minutes and buy a BBQ chook.
I’ve used a multigrain tortilla, available at the supermarket. As the chicken mixture is not very wet you can make these enchilada’s the day before, just pour over the salsa and sprinkle with cheese before baking.
Be generous with your cheese.
