      The boys thought this was wonderful. It was very easy to make. I tweaked it for the oven, as my crockpot was in use by a neighbor and baked it for 90 minutes at 275º. After shredding the chicken, I put the meat back in the casserole dish, and served it on tortillas with refried beans. I'll be making this again!

      Very easy and good. I made with 4 good sized boneless chicken breasts. I had a bit too much sauce so next time I will add another breast or two. There will be a next time.

      This was super easy and lovely. I used boneless, skinless thighs. I couldn't find the dry mix at the store so found a substitute recipe (Dry Enchilada Sauce Mix Substitute) which I used. I shredded the chicken and served it rolled up in tortillas with extra cheese, sour cream, and green onions, and My Lightly Spiced Black Beans on the side. Oh, and I used cheddar-jack cheese. Thanks for the recipe!
