    As many others have commented, I use low sodium/low fat soup when making this recipe. Also my recipe uses only the cream of chicken mixed with enchilada sauce rather than sour cream. I spread a bit of refried beans onto each tortila, mix soup and sauce with chicken, sprinkle w/cheese. Family loves! - 4/12/10

    Very good, we used low fat soups and only half the low fat sour cream and then half salsa to cut down calories. Still need to calculate them. Excellent dish. - 1/30/08

    When the dish was FINALLY done, it was ok. The directions said to add the cut up chicken to the mix of soup and cheese, it did not say that the CHICKEN SHOULD BE COOKED FIRST! That would be a good addition to the recipe. Thanks - 4/13/09

    I baked my chicken breasts fn the oven on 350 for 45 minutees (covered with foil). then shredded by using 2 forks. Used low sodium cream of celery & cream of chicken soups....but only 1/2 of each can. Used only a tsp. sour cream to top each enchilada...Then used salsa instead of chili peppers. - 4/12/09

    WOW, I would not make this just because of the nutritional count. It may be very tasty but that is a lot of calories, fat and sodium. TOO much for me - 4/12/10

    use more chilies and you don't need to creamy soups AT ALL. save the sour cream too. make a good flavored chicken breast and use corn tortillas for better use of carbs. use low fat cheese or less of whole white cheddar cheese. add a green enchilada sauce over the tops and enjoy. less calories - 4/12/10

    How about using corn tortillas instead? The chicken definitely needs to be cooked ahead of time like the traditional recipe. You can boil the chicken in a spicy broth with garlic clove, onion, salt and pepper. Thanks for the recipe. - 4/20/09

    No thank you, the sodium level in this is way to high. I like the old fashion way of using ehchallida sauce layered with corn tortilla and topped with a little cheese. - 4/15/09

    I make ones that are close to these, but I use a rue (1 T butter healthy choice and flour wheat and 1 cup water with ckn boullion cube) and then add 1/2 8oz jar salsa. This would definately cut the sodium - 4/12/09

  • This was one the the best receipes for enchiladas I have ever had. I did remove the chicken and made them cheese but even left overs were wonderful. - 10/2/13

  • These are NOT enchiladas! Check out what goes into enchilada sauce and you will see. Perhaps you could call it Baked Chicken Roll-Up's? It would be more realistic.. - 9/7/11

  • I make a similar recipe, using a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and adding diced and sauted onion and green pepper. Through in some cayenne pepper and chili powder, and top with green tomatillo sauce to serve - very yummy! - 8/31/11

  • Was good! Changed a few things used less sour cream, added enchiladas sauce and used 98%fat free soup. Want to play with it some more to bring down calories...the way I made it brought it down to 385. I will make again! - 3/20/11

    I'm not sure why people are so nasty when they comment but, it really is not necessary. This is a good recipe, & is healthy. If you all want a 200 calorie meal save your negative remarks for elsewhere, this post doesn't deserve them. - 4/13/10

  • Im sorry but GROSS. Also there are no instructions for cooking the chicken. An inexperienced cook would need these details. Making them with a sauce from simmered canned crushed tomatoes,spices & water , corn tortillas & topped with low fat cheese would make them tastier and lower in calories. - 4/13/10
