Easy Chicken Enchiladas with a Rotisserie Chicken

Updated on October 25, 2012
4.3 stars from 4 ratings of Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken enchiladas are a delicious easy dish the whole family will enjoy. Why not take a short cut and use a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store so it will taste like you have been working in the kitchen all day! This recipe can be assembled earlier in the day, and wait in the refrigerator until time to bake. You may have to add 10 minutes to the bake time if it goes in the oven direct from the fridge. It can also be made with 16 small tortillas to feed a crowd. Just a little more work rolling them!

These can be garnished with sour cream, salsa, cilantro and lime juice to make it more suitable for casual entertaining. It also goes well with a green salad. Enjoy!
