Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Recipe by Jellyqueen

I found this recipe when searching for a recipe to use up some leftover grilled chicken breast. Plus it can be put together early in the day, then cooked for dinner.

I was looking for this recipe because my mom used to make it all the time and I was craving it! I thought this looked similar, so I made it last night, but the sauce did not have the same rich, mellow flavor. This sauce tasted very sharp and acidic to me, so I checked the recipe against my mom's and found out that it is almost the same with a few exceptions:<br/>Sautee 2 T. butter, 1 clove garlic, 1/2 c. diced onions until soft, add can of green chilies, add soup, sour cream and 4 oz. shredded cheese. Reserve 3/4 c. of this mixture and stir in 1/4 c. of milk-set aside. Mix chicken in with the remaining cream mixture, heat tortillas, fill tortillas, then top with the cream mixture (plus milk) that was set aside. Bake until golden and bubbly.<br/><br/>We didn't finish the double recipe I made, and it was very dry, so I am going to make some sauce from my mom's recipe and pour it over the top and rebake tonight for dinner. I really appreciate your recipe, it helped me make a quick meal last night. I hope you don't mind my posting the changes I am going to make. Thanks Jellyqueen
