1/1 Photo of Perfect Chicken Enchiladas
1 hr 45 mins
I've tried several different chicken enchilada recipes here but they all were lacking in one area or another. After many attempts I finally took the best parts of each and came up with the best recipe yet. NOTE- these come out very firm because I let most of the enchilada sauce evaporate when cooking when the chicken. If you want them gooey, don't let it cook too long.

- 1 (10 ounce) can enchilada sauce
- 1 (4 ounce) can mushrooms, drained & chopped
- 1/2 onion, chopped finely
- 1 cup sour cream

- 1 (4 ounce) can green chilies, chopped
- 1/4 chicken broth

- 2Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add chicken and can of enchilada sauce. Let simmer for 5-10 minutes. Again, the consistency of the dish depends on how long you let the sauce thicken/evaporate.
