This is a really good recipe. I did make some changes for a few reasons. I used canned chicken breasts because I was trying to test to see if this would be easy enough to make while camping. I still cooked it in the pan with garlic it just didnt cook as long. I doubled the garlic.. we are garlic fans round here. I used green enchilada sauce in lieu od picante sauce. I like it better. I also mixed in a few tablespoons of sour creme in with the 1/2 cup enchilada sauce to make it more like chicken sour cream enchiladas. I also, based off another enchilada recipe I had my eye on spread the bottom of my baking sheet with a small layer of sour cream before placing the enchiladas in the pan. Next time I make this I am omitting the red bell peppers... I ended up picking them out and my husbands wasnt a fan of them either... I will probably put in diced onion in with the chicken and garlic in lieu of red bell pepper. We are also big fans of onion around here! ;)

Hopping on the bandwagon... these are some tasty enchiladas! I subbed regular onions for green and upped the garlic, but didn't add any cheese inside the enchiladas (I didn't have enough, and I figured it would be lower-calorie that way anyway.) I like a creamy enchilada, so I worried these would be dry, but they tasted divine. The little bit of bacon gave these a great flavor. Thanks! This will go in my recipe rotation.

This is so good. We used the picante sauce and then also put a can of enchilada sauce on it too cause we like them saucy and it was a bit dry for us but other than that is was a awesome dinner!

I was REALLY surprised with how simple and delicious this recipe was! I substituted bacon bits to make it even easier and it was a hit with the family. I've made it twice now and have added it to my cookbook. Thanks!

Excellent Enchiladas! I used already cooked chicken breast strips from Costco to shorten the cook time and just heated it thru with the rest of the ingredients. They made great leftovers as well...I had all my coworkers drooling!!

This was a big hit this evening! I used turkey bacon and skipped the red peppers. I didn't bake them, either, as I used "Tortillas" rather than store bought. I'd say that this serves 4 adults. Yum!

WOW, this will be going directly to the favoites book. It was even better reheated the second day. I think it would be great to triple and use for OAMC. I did not use the bacon greese to cook the chicken but thought that there was pleanty of bacon flavor.
