    1. 1
      In a pot, add water chicken thighs, garlic powder, onion powder and seasoning salt.
    2. 2
      Simmer until chicken thighs are cooked and fork tender.
    3. 3
      Remove chicken thighs from liquid and using 2 forks shred the chicken meat.
    4. 4
      Mix shredded chicken, 1 can of salsa and 1 cup of cheese.
    5. 5
      Grease a baking dish, line 5 tortillas on the bottom then layer the other ingredients; chicken mixture, olives, roughly 1/2 of the enchilada sauce and cheese.
    6. 6
      Repeat layering twice (or until you use up all your ingredients).
    7. 7
      You want your last layers to be sauce and cheese so you get a nice bubbly top on the dish.
    8. 8
      Bake at 375 degrees for 45- 55 min or until cheese is bubbly and the entire dish is warmed through.
    9. 9
      Serve with fresh chopped cilantro (optional) and sour cream.

      I actually used cottage cheese instead of sour cream because I forgot to buy it - worked great! And overall great flavoring to this recipe.
