~What's for dinner? ~

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Mr.Piggy loves it when I serve 'chicken'

This is a recipe I have adapted from one I found online at

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast cut up into medium dice
1 medium onion diced
2 TBS vegetable or olive oil
Lightly saute chicken and onion in oil.
Do not overcook, jut until lightly browned
Remove from heat.

Use 8" flour tortillas
Spoon a couple tablespoons of chicken mixture along tortilla
Now here's where you get to be creative
the original recipe only called for cheese
but I decided to add this great salsa we had on hand
I also think rotel tomatoes would be great
or how about corn? or some black beans? or......
Top with a couple tablespoons of cheese
 ( any cheese will do. Monterey Jack or Mexican blend, or....)
Roll tortillas tightly and place in a casserole dish that has been sprayed with non-stick spray

Now make the sauce.
Melt 1/4 cup of butter
add 1/4 cup of flour to make a roux
slowly add 15 oz of chicken broth ( I happened to have a jar of homemade from Mr. Wonderful)
stir until combined
stir frequently until mixture comes to a boil
remove from heat
immediately whisk in 1 cup sour cream
and one small 4 oz can of chopped green chiles

Pour over tortillas

top with more cheese
( Mr. Wonderful came in and added peppers from his garden at the last minute)
Gotta love him :)
Place in 400 degree oven for 20 mins or until sauce is bubbly and cheese is well melted

Remove from oven and let sit for 5 mins before plating.
makes approx 6-8 enchiladas

mmm...mmmm good
This is an easy breezy recipe
perfect for a hectic week
which has been the case  here at The Dressed Up Cottage
It's great with a side salad or maybe some little green chile corn muffins.
Hope you enjoy.


  1. Hi, Terri - Thanks for sharing your recipe! This looks yummy and wonderful and E-Z (which is important for moi)! I am a novice cook, so gotta be EZ. I might make it and serve with margaritas. Perfect for summer :-)
    Ciao ciao,

    1. Easy breezy is the key, Loi :)
      Especially in the summer. I'll take one of those margaritas, thank you very much.

  2. Hey Terri - I've noticed all day your blog keeps showing "summer snapshots" as the latest post. When I click over, it shows error, fyi.

    1. Thanks for the info Loi. Not sure what that's all about.

  3. Thank you for sharing! This is one of our favorite kinds of meals to eat!

    I am going to try it!
