    Amy - Ellie's Mommie's Note:

    This recipe was inspired by bdyashana's Special Ingredient Chicken Enchiladas #61634. I made so many alterations to her recipe, I thought I should just post a new one! But the cinnamon is her idea, and boy is it a good one! Also, poaching the chicken in a flavored broth is from her recipe. I couldn't waste all that broth, so I decided to cook it down and use it! Since so many chicken enchilada recipes call for cream soup, I thought I'd make it creamy with the milk/flour slurry. Turned out awesome!
