Number of Servings: 8


    1 Whole Chicken
    1 Packet Mexican Seasoning
    1 Large Onion, sliced
    1 Clove Garlic, chopped
    1 Pack Low Carb Tortillas (taco size)
    1 Cup Sour Cream
    1 1/2 Cup & 4 Tablespoons Enchilada Sauce
    1 Can Diced Chile Peppers
    1/2 Cup Chicken Broth (use broth made from chicken)
    1 Cup Shredded Cheese


Preheat oven to 350.

Rinse and clean one whole chicken and put into a large stockpot with the seasonings, onion and garlic. Cover pot and cook for 30 minutes to an hour, depending on size of chicken.

Once chicken is done and should be falling off the bone. Slowly remove the chicken from the pot and put on a cutting board or dish for shredding. Using two forks, shred the chicken and remove all bones and skin. Set aside shredded chicken.

Strain broth in the pot over a heat resistant bowl. Let cool slightly before using. You can store the remaining broth or toss it out.

In a large bowl, mix enchilada sauce, sour cream and broth together. Add chile peppers and chicken.

Take the 2 tablespoons of enchilada sauce that was set aside and spread over the base of the casserole or pyrex dish (9x13). Lay down 4 tortillas, then cover with chicken mixture and sprinkle some cheese on top. Repeat layers until dish is full. You should end with a layer of tortillas, 2 tablespoons of enchilada sauce and cheese.

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 15 minutes longer or until nice and brown on top.

    Tis is a very good and simple recipe. My husband can be a bit of a low carb snob but enjoyed it as well as the grandkids. It's so good that I'm making it for dinner again tonight.
    FYI--I'm a low carber due to diabetes so I make my own low carb enchilada sauce to use.
