      These were a hit in my house. I made a few minor changes though. I used all chicken broth instead of the wine, and as far as the chicken goes, I added a little of the sour cream mixture to it, along with a little shredded cheddar and adobo sauce, so it wouldn't be too dry. I was able to make about ten enchiladas - and they were all gone... Thanks!
