  1. In a pot, add water chicken thighs, garlic powder, onion powder and seasoning salt.
  2. Simmer until chicken thighs are cooked and fork tender.
  3. Remove chicken thighs from liquid and using 2 forks shred the chicken meat.
  4. Mix shredded chicken, 1 can of salsa and 1 cup of cheese.
  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. Repeat layering twice (or until you use up all your ingredients).
  7. You want your last layers to be sauce and cheese so you get a nice bubbly top on the dish.
  8. Bake at 375 degrees for 45- 55 min or until cheese is bubbly and the entire dish is warmed through.
  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.
