  • Ziploc Bag
  • 9x13-inch Baking Pan



  • 6 Tablespoons honey
  • 5 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cooked and shredded


  • 16 ounces green enchilada sauce divided
  • 10 flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese divided
  • 1 cup heavy cream


  • Whisk together marinade ingredients and toss with shredded chicken in a resealable gallon-sized bag or airtight container.
  • Let chicken mixture marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, but preferably a few hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Pour 1/2 cup enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9 X 13 inch baking pan.
  • Fill the tortillas with chicken, saving marinade (if any left), and shredded cheese, reserving about 1 cup of cheese to sprinkle on top of enchiladas.
  • Placed rolled tortillas into prepared pan.
  • Mix the remaining enchilada sauce with heavy cream and leftover marinade, if any, and pour on top of enchiladas.
  • Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 30 minutes, or until brown and crispy on top.



  • If you're looking to save some time, try using a Rotisserie chicken in this recipe!
