This Chicken Enchiladas recipe has an unique take on the traditional Mexican dish that will satisfy and tickle your taste buds. It’s very interesting in that it calls for black olives, which I am not normally a fan of but in this recipe; I love them. A dear friend of ours made these for us right before we left Korea to come back to the States and since then we’ve adapted the recipe slightly and added our own Tomatillo Sauce to it and now it seems to be perfect for us and we hope you agree.

Serves: 9×13 pan

Ingredients

  • 14-18 Corn tortillas
  • Rotisserie chicken (approximately 3 chicken breasts if your not using a rotisserie) shredded
  • 1 4oz can of diced black olives- drained
  • 2 cups shredded cheese plus some for topping
  • 1 can enchilada sauce – we prefer green but red can be used
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup tomatillo sauce

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 350ºF

Shred your chicken and start assembling your delicious chicken enchiladas. On the inside of the enchilada place tomatillo sauce if using along with chicken, black olives and cheese. Roll up and place into your 9×13 pan. The corn tortillas roll much easier if slightly headed.

When you pan is filled up, pour the enchilada sauce over top and sprinkle with more cheese.
