Ingredients

Chicken Enchiladas

White Sauce

  • 2 tbsp butter unsalted
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth low sodium or no sodium added
  • 4 oz green chiles (1 small can)
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded

Garnish

  • 2 tbsp parsley fresh, chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven and prepare baking dish: Preheat your oven to 350 F degrees. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. I used a 9x6 baking dish.
  • Prepare filling: In a medium bowl combine the chicken 1 cup of mozzarella cheese and the enchilada sauce. 
  • Assemble enchiladas: Take a tortilla, top with about 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture, then roll it up and place in the prepared baking dish. Continue with all the tortillas until they are all filled and rolled. You should have enough chicken mixture to fill 6 tortillas.
  • Make sauce: In a saucepan, melt the butter and whisk in the flour. Cook for a minute then add the chicken broth and whisk until smooth. Let it cook until the sauce is thick and bubbly.
  • Add the sour cream and green chiles to the saucepan and stir. Remove from heat. Taste the sauce and season with salt and pepper as necessary.
  • Pour sauce over enchiladas: Pour the sauce over the enchiladas and top with the remaining mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake: Bake for 22 to 25 minutes or until the top starts to brown and the sauce is bubbly. 
  • Garnish and serve: Garnish with parsley or cilantro and serve.
