Rich chicken enchiladas in a creamy sauce and topped with cheddar cheese.
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.

JRUNNION 4m agoI didn't like it too well. The sauce was too thick and it was very bland. Will not make again.

Kburke10 1y agoBlech. Bland. We love enchiladas. 5 kids…not one of them liked this. Probably bc of cream of chicken soup and no spices except for the chilis. Never like recipes that call for canned soup in the mix. Only picked this recipe because my kids love mexican food and I wanted something easy for my kids to help me make.

shorton71 1y agoThis is my family's ultimate favorite recipe. Thank you for sharing such a delicious recipe!!!! Been making these since I found this recipe here in 2008.
chutzpahubris 2y agoThis was great! I also added enchilada sauce to the chicken soup sauce and prepared as directed on the package. Next time I'll add more green chillies and maybe some pepper flakes to give it more spicy

Erincpeters 2y 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!
