Chicken Enchiladas

We got tired of eating chinese and regular everyday food and with a fridge full of goodies it seemed criminal to go out to eat hence decided to make mexican instead.  Hope you enjoy this as much as The Husband enjoyed it....


2 chicken breast poached and flaked ( You can poach in hot water or throw in some aromatics likes pepper corns, bayleaves, cloves,garlic and ginger with some coriander, this liquid can be reserved and used as stock for other recipes)

2 tbsps sour cream
One medium sliced
1 cup cheese
4 flour tortillas (i used store bought but it is fairly easy to make at home as well)
1/2 cup kidney beans cooked with tomato. salt and pepper
Store bought salsa.


Mix the cooked chicken, onions,sourcream,half of the cheese and salt and pepper.

coat baking dish with butter or cooking spray.  Make rolls of each tortilla with filling of the kidney beans and chicken.  Lay the rolls with seam side down. top with the salsa.  Cover dish with aluminium foil and cook in 175 deg C oven for 40 mins.  Once done....sprinkle remaining cheese and bake for 10 mins (uncovered)

Bon Apetit from Mimi
