      Chicken Preparation: Separate chicken meat from bones and skin. Place in a large bowl.
    2. 2
      Filling: Heat oil in skillet on medium. Sauté onion and garlic until caramelized. Add to chicken. Add half of the olives, chilies, and half the cheese. Mix well.
    3. 3
      Sauce: Mix enchilada sauce, tomato sauce, and tomato in a small bowl. Spread 1/2 cup of sauce evenly on the bottom of a rectangular baking dish.

      Tortilla Preparation: Spray small skillet with non-stick spray. Heat on medium-high stove top. When hot, place tortilla on top. After tortilla starts to expand, turn over.

      Very tasty. The tortillas turned to mush in the oven though and I don't know why. I wonder if I didn't cook them long enough (in the Pam) or if I could have tried some crunchy chips instead. What a great recipe to use up rotisserie chicken!!!!! I will try cooking the tortillas longer next time.
