So much easier to make enchiladas in one skillet than to individually wrap each one!

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in flour; cook for 1 minute. Whisk in chicken broth; cook and stir until sauce is smooth and thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Stir green chiles, olives, salt, oregano, and chipotle chile powder into the sauce. Add chicken breasts and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Remove chicken from the skillet, leaving heat on low. Place chicken on a plate; shred into bite-size pieces.

  • Stir sour cream into the sauce. Return chicken to the skillet; add tortilla pieces. Stir until combined and top with Colby-Jack cheese. Cover and cook until bubbly and melted, 5 to 8 minutes.

All the chicken enchilada taste without the fuss! Necessity required one change--I didn't have chicken broth so used bouillon instead. My husband wasn't hungry due to a late lunch and said he'd have "a taste." He's now eating his second serving. The recipe didn't say if the olives & chilies should be drained; I drained the former but not the latter. I thought 12 tortillas might be too many and only used 8; won't make that mistake again:-) My only criticism is it wasn't as spicy as I like so next time I'll add more chipotle. Read More
