Number of Servings: 6


    32 ounces skinless chicken breasts or skinless chicken thighs, are fine
    1 cup onion
    1/4-3/8 cup flour
    1/2 teaspoon dry oregano
    2 cups chicken broth (more or less-depending on how thick you like the mixture)
    2 (4 ounce) cans diced green chilies
    6 burrito sized tortillas (about 7" in diameter)
    3/8 cup cheese


Brown chicken pieces-set aside to cool.
Dice chicken when cooled.
Saute onion till translucent.
Put chicken back into skillet- add the flour, stirring till flour disappears.
Add oregano and cook till aromatic.
Add chicken broth to mixture to thicken.
Cook 1-2 minutes-then add the diced green chiles.
Warm mixture through.
Put tortillas in microwave and microwave each one about 25-30 seconds.
(I put them one at a time) Remove tortilla and put the chicken mixture in and fold the tortilla seam side down.
Repeat with remaining tortillas.
Put tortillas in a casserole dish and sprinkle the cheese on top.
Put the casserole into a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes till cheese melts and tortillas are heated through.
