    ChrissyG1968's Note:

    I found this recipe on the internet when I wanted to try making Chicken Enchiladas. I liked the idea of a cream based sauce rather than a tomato based sauce. The filling is so incredible that you can eat it cold right out of the bowl. My family loved it and I make this all the time now.

      Oh My Goodness! These were delishious!!! I have another recipee but it has tons of ingredients and costs a ton. This was easy, SO tasty, easy, filling... the kids loved it and so did my DH.I was sceptical about the mixture of cream and broth.. but it made a PERFECT sauce. I ended up with two pans in one oven so i did put in one at a time in broiler for 2 minutes to brown up the tops nice since they were sharing. But except for that followed to the word!
