Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas Recipe

Print Friendly

This is my husbands ALL-TIME favorite meal!  Whenever I have to take a meal to neighbors or people are coming over, he always tells me this is what I should make.  I’m sure everyone we know has eaten these by now, but we love ‘em!



Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas Recipe:

Ingredients:
Marinade:
6 tablespoons honey
5 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Enchiladas:
1 pound chicken, cooked and shredded (I usually boil 4 chicken breasts and shred them)
8-10 flour tortillas
1 pound Monterrey jack cheese, shredded
16 ounces green enchilada sauce
1 cup heavy cream
Directions:
Whisk the first four ingredients and toss with shredded chicken in a Zip-loc bag.  Let it marinate in the fridge for at least a 1/2 hour, but preferably a half day or so.  Pour about 1/2 cup enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9X13 baking pan.  Fill the tortillas with chicken, saving marinade, and shredded cheese, saving about 1 cup of cheese to sprinkle on top of enchiladas.  Put rolled tortillas in 9×13 pan as you go.  Mix the remaining enchilada sauce with the cream and leftover marinade (if there is any).  Pour sauce on top of the enchiladas.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until brown and crispy on top.

      So you mix some shredded chicken with the marinade as well as put some extra chicken on the inside of tortilla????? Just want to be sure.

        The chicken soaks in the marinade. You take it out when to add it to the wrap. Don’t throw the marinade away that the chicken was soaking in.
