Yummy! I served with Green Cilantro Rice #108262 by Laura Lee in Texas. The only thing I changed was that I didn't use coriander (didn't have) and I added a little homemade salsa verde to the chicken mixture. Thanks for posting!

Delicious-- I had this recipe at one point but lost it so I'm really happy to find it again. Corn tortillas are perfect for enchiladas of any kind so that's what I used. I used three chicken breast halves, which was probably more than 2 cups but I don't know (didn't measure). I also prepared it in layers (like a lasagna) rather than rolling individual enchiladas (which is a hassle). Great with double the cheese and extra sauce (made by adding about 1/2 cup of extra chicken stock). Thanks for posting this, Wendy!
