How to make shredded chicken enchiladas
This recipe requires shredded chicken. 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. The easiest way is to take two forks and pull the chicken apart in to small shreds of 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.
When the chicken is done preheat your oven to 400 ℉/200℃. Now all you need to do is assemble the enchiladas with:
- enchilada sauce
- shredded chicken
- kidney beans
- bell peppers
Put the enchilada together in this order and roll them up tight. Take the enchilada and put it in an oven dish. Repeat this for the other enchiladas as well.
I use small tortillas but you can use medium tortillas as well. Now pour all of the remaining enchilada sauce on top of the enchilada before you decorate the enchiladas with Mozzarella cheese.
Then bake the enchilada for at least 30-35 minutes in the oven and you are ready to enjoy this delicious simple shredded chicken enchilada casserole.
