White Chicken Enchiladas are one of my favorite weeknight chicken dinners. Simple, rich, cheesy, and satisfying. A perfect recipe for use a rotisserie chicken for an necessary (at least in my house) mid-week shortcut!
I love these enchiladas. I mean LOVE. They are so delicious and, not to mention, soooooo easy. They can be prepped in advance, or made on a weeknight. The filling is hearty shredded chicken, cheese, and diced green chiles. Topped with cheese, baked, and broiled for a few minutes make the best ooey gooey enchiladas with a golden top.
Dinner was never easier or more delicious than this dish! My kiddos love this meal, and I am always excited for dinner when I know it is on the menu. I also love this recipe because it makes fantastic leftovers for lunch the following day!
What do you serve these enchiladas with? I love to serve my enchiladas with black beans and a scoop of saffron rice. I top mine with a dollop of sour cream as well. I think they are also fantastic with refried beans, pinto beans, or even a fresh salad with a few slices of avocado.
Frequently asked questions:
Can I use olive oil in place of butter?
Yes, olive oil will work but the flavor of the sauce might be slightly different.
What is the best method to rolling enchiladas?
I place most of my filling to one side then roll to make sure I can get a tight roll to keep the filling intact.
Are green chiles spicy?
No, they are a mild pepper. If you want more heat use canned diced jalapenos.
Do I need to keep an eye on my enchiladas when the broil?
Yes, 5 minutes is perfect in my oven, but check on them around 3 minutes to make sure you do not experience scorching.
I am into all things using rotisserie chicken today! Rotisserie chicken is an amazing time saver for me on the weekdays when it comes to dinner.
