Nice cheap quick meal! I doubled and used 1 can (I think 15 oz) of sauce. I think the key is getting a sauce you really like. I added some extra spices to the enchilada sauce per my family's tastes. I also added a little extra cheese to each chicken after it was plated. I think next time I would put some olives, and green onions on top. It might also be good with a bit of sour cream on the side. The chicken was VERY moist. I cooked for about 45 min. Family thought it was pretty good. We will be having this again with the changes I mentioned. Served with refried beans (no fat), and corn with a dash of chili powder. Thanks so much!
