A simple "dump it all in together" recipe. You can use chicken breasts, or, for more flavor, a whole boned chicken. I bone the chicken a day ahead to save prep time on cooking day. The canned green chilies are very mild. This freezes beautifully. Wonderful pot luck dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil whole chicken until meat falls off bone.
  2. Bone chicken. Reserve broth.
  3. Cook chopped onions in butter until translucent.
  4. Mix all ingredients in large bowl, adding enough broth to moisten. I usually add about 1/2 cup.
  5. Bake in 13x9-inch pan at 350°F for 45 minutes.

This was so easy! I had a craving for chicken enchiladas, but I didn't want to slave over them forever. This recipe looked good, quick, and easy, and I was right! It is wonderful! I used a pound of cheddar jack in them and dumped another pound of cheddar on top. Oh so yummy!!
