A lot of my recipes are chicken and that is because… I love chicken. It is just as simple. Chicken can be prepared very fast and it can adopt a lot of flavors. This recipe required shredded chicken.

Simple shredded chicken enchilada ingredients

To get shredded chicken you just put some water to the boil, add some chicken stock cube and add a chicken breast filet. Just leave it on a low simmer for about 20-25 minutes and you can shred the chicken. In the mean while you can prepare this great enchilada sauce recipe. I takes no more than 10 minutes to get it done. You can make it with oil or with vegetable butter.

Preheat your oven on 400 ℉. Now all you need to do is assemble the enchiladas with:

  • tortilla
  • enchilada sauce
  • shredded chicken
  • kidney beans
  • bell peppers
  • onion

Fold the enchilada and put them in a oven dish. I use small tortillas but you can use medium tortillas as well. Now pour all of the remaining enchilada sauce on the enchilada before you decorate the enchiladas with Mozzarella cheese.
