Chicken, cheese and a creamy enchilada sauce are rolled together and baked to reveal quick and easy to make chicken enchiladas for dinner!

Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken Enchiladas are one of those recipes that have to be on your to-do list if you haven’t already made them. They are the perfect combination of the delicious soft tacos we all know except baked to perfection. This was one of those recipes that I will admit, I was a bit wary to share because I didn’t love the photos, but I figured that it would be a great injustice to not share these with you, especially if you’ve never made them.

The combination is pretty simple, you just need shredded cooked chicken, enchilada sauce, cheese and tortillas, and the rest is up to you. Whether you want to add green onions, re-fried beans, sweet peppers and onions, is totally up to your taste. All you need to do is roll these babies up with the ingredients and bake them for 30 minutes. What will be revealed are golden brown tortillas topped with extra sauce and extra cheese (Um…YES!) with a slightly crunchy exterior and a soft, creamy and balanced inside.

Did I mention it’s Poultry Day? Well, how about we celebrate Poultry Day with this delicious treat? It’s on me.

  4. Looks amazing and I just LOVE how east it is! Thanks Jessica! What time of day you take your photos, the light looks great!

    • Jessica says:

      Thanks Sophia! Haha, funny enough this was taken at like 9 pm with artificial light! Very few of my photos are, but it’s great to know you loved the lighting!! I usually take my photos at 1pm-4pm based on when the light is on that side of the house.

      • Thanks jessica! Did you use a special light for this? It looks pretty amazing for artificial light! My pics always come out yellow from florescent light.

          Hey Sophia,

          I use Cowboy Studio Lights but LOWEL Ego Lights work perfect too! They kind of provide the articial light without the harshness and yellowness.

  5. Enchiladas are my favorite food and, you’re right, they are so darn easy and versatile! I love an excuse to make them so Happy Poultry Day! haha.

    PS: Your pictures look great! You’re too hard on yourself!
