DIRECTIONS

  • In a pot, add water chicken thighs, garlic powder, onion powder and seasoning salt.
  • Simmer until chicken thighs are cooked and fork tender.
  • Remove chicken thighs from liquid and using 2 forks shred the chicken meat.
  • Mix shredded chicken, 1 can of salsa and 1 cup of cheese.
  • Grease a baking dish, line 5 tortillas on the bottom then layer the other ingredients; chicken mixture, olives, roughly 1/2 of the enchilada sauce and cheese.
  • Repeat layering twice (or until you use up all your ingredients).
  • You want your last layers to be sauce and cheese so you get a nice bubbly top on the dish.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 45- 55 min or until cheese is bubbly and the entire dish is warmed through.
  • Serve with fresh chopped cilantro (optional) and sour cream.
