Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken Enchiladas

Introduction

Made this with leftovers from the "crockpot sticky chicken"
This is one of my family's favorite recipes. It's high in sodium though! Hopefully I can get my hands on some low sodium enchilada sauce soon and re-do this.

This is great for leftover turkey also!

  • Excellent Recipe. The family loved it. I paired it with a corn and black bean salsa, and a side salad. I also purchased large low carb tortillas that were only 100 calories, and with the chicken and sauce you couldn't tell the difference. Yummy. - 4/19/10
