Elegant Chicken Enchiladas

February 23, 2013

OH MY!  These chicken enchiladas are SO delicious!  The best part?  You can prepare them the night before and, then, serve them the next evening.  I made these for a special Valentine’s Day dinner party last week.  One thing is for certain, every single plate was scraped clean after this main course and, well, I love this…..makes me know that our guests enjoyed the meal.

Elegant Chicken Enchiladas
Recipe type: Main Course
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 8-10

  • 6 boneless chicken breasts, boiled and shredded
  • 3 packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup real mayonnaise
  • 3 shakes hot sauce ( I used Louisiana hot sauce, but, Tobasco sauce is fine too)
  • 1½ t. ground sea salt
  • ¾ cup white wine
  • 2 cans chopped green chilis
  • 1¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 10 medium size flour tortillas
  • 2 cups Mozzarella or Monterrey Jack cheese, grated

  1. Boil the chicken with 1 t. each: salt, pepper and garlic powder for 30 minutes, until tender. Drain water off of chicken and let cool. Chop the chicken into ½ inch pieces. Combine chicken with cream cheese, mayonnaise, hot sauce, sea salt, white wine and green chilis.
  2. Place 3-4 Tablespoons of the chicken mixture in the middle of a flour tortilla and roll up. Repeat x 10. Wrap up tightly and, place side by side, in a glass 9 x 13 dish (be sure and spray dish with cooking spray). The tortillas can touch or overlap a bit, this is fine.
  3. Pour the whipping cream evenly over the wrapped enchiladas. Sprinkle the cheese over the top.
  4. Can Refrigerate overnight and serve the next day.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees, uncovered for 30-35 minutes. Serve immediately. Garnish with salsa and sour cream, if desired.
  6. Note: These are GREAT as leftovers! So good the next day!

These enchiladas will surely be a hit with your family and your guests!  Why not invite a new family over for dinner this week or, a neighbor that you have been wanting to get to know better?  Host a “Girl’s Night Out” for a few friends and, serve this easy main course.  Get to cooking and, your guests will be so excited to try this dish!
