Rich chicken enchiladas in a creamy sauce and topped with cheddar cheese.
"It was super easy and very delicious and the ingredients were also inexpensive! I modified the chicken mix very slightly by adding cilantro. I also chopped up some canned jalapeños and placed them on top of the cheese before placing them in the oven to bake. My nephew said "these sure are good!" and loved them so much he asked for seconds which rarely happens! My fiancée said that these were almost the best enchiladas he's ever had and they were even comparable to his mothers! Talk about great compliments! Thank you for sharing srenea! This recipe is definitely a keeper!"- Summerobaby

Top-ranked recipe named "Creamy Chicken Enchiladas"
If using rotisserie chicken, remove meat from bone and chop into bitesize pieces. (FYI, I feel rotisserie chicken gives the best flavor...)
If using whole uncooked chicken, boil until fully cooked. Debone chicken and cut up.
In another bowl, mix 2 cans cream chicken soup, 3/4 cup sour cream, 1/3 cup milk.
To chicken add diced green chilies, olives, and 1/2 of the soup mixture. (Other 1/2 will be put on top of rolled tortillas.)
Roll up chicken mixtures in tortillas (I use 6 -8 tortillas) and place in 9x13 pan or two 8x8 pans.
Spread remainder of soup mixture on top of tortillas and top with grated cheese.
Bake at 350 for approximately 35 mintues or until bubbling.
Very good as is or also topped with fresh tomatoes and diced green onions.
I have found that if you make it the day before and keep it overnight in the refrigerator, it is even better!
This also freezes very well.
This always turns out well. For my family, I always make two 8x8 pans and put one in the freezer - it freezes very well.
I have served this for company often, and they always ask for the recipe.
BigOven makes mealtime easy!

Erincpeters 1 day 18 hours agoThis was awesome! We added chopped spinach and mushrooms, and wound up having to double the sauce. So we ended up with several pans for the freezer. I hope they're as good the second time around!

amijojcpo 1 month agoVery good. I use black beans instead of olives and to lighten up a bit used 98% fat free soup, and Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Taste the same. We also use lower fat cheeses We make two bowls and add cheese to both stuffing and topping. You can also add jalapeños.

tlbarker72 4 months agoPretty good. I thought the sauce was a little bland so I added some cumin. But these enchiladas are so creamy and yummy. Will definitely make again.

arielasylum 7 months agoI've made this recipe several times adding different ingredients for flavor. I've made them spicy and not, and every time (with men in the house) it's like a War over the leftovers. I made three full pans once, and they lasted until the next evening, and that was it. Love it!
letonyabailey 7 months agoSounds good!
pauldean1 7 months agoAn easy allrounder!! I cater to two lots of kids - mine love spicy foods so the recipe above is one of their favourites, my girlfriend's kids have softer tastes so I make it without the chilli and add smoked paprika instead to give it some flavour and they like it that way. Served with Mexican Rice that is also on Big Oven!!
Jeanwgriffin 7 months agoYummy! A family favorite. I used one can of soup and reduced the milk. Served with black beans and brown rice.
