This was really good. I had cooked chicken breasts in the crockpot with a chicken taco seasoning and some chicken broth for soft tacos, and my family didn’t eat much of it. So I had about 1 1/2 lbs. seasoned chicken leftover, which worked perfectly for this recipe. I used a 9 x 13 pan since I had extra chicken than what the recipe called for. I still only used 6 tortillas, but 8 or so would have probably been better for coverage in the pan. I used mild enchilada sauce, but topped my portion with salsa and jalapeños. My husband used sour cream. I definitely think it would have been bland if the chicken hadn’t been seasoned. Will definitely make again due to ease of recipe.

I followed the advice of other reviews and seasoned the chicken and grilled (not boiled) it. I used 2 tbsp of reduced sodium taco seasoning. Subbed black beans for refried beans (just because I had on hand). Added a can of corn and green chilies. I think without the seasoning on the chicken I would have rated it lower. The number of ingredients and ease of assembly make it a great addition to the rotation.

Was easy and yummy. I added green chiles to the mix. My husband had 2 helpings.

We're not big on beans, so I replaced it with corn. Thinking about it now, it might have been better to add mushrooms for texture. I also used red and green enchilada sauce in alternating layers since my sister doesn't like spice that much. Anyway, the dish turned out quite lovely, although the taste was certainly better after letting it sit for a few hours after baking and allowing the sauce to seep further into the tortilla. Next time I make this, I'll probably use chicken stock or add herbs when boiling the chicken to add more flavor.

Amazing flavours that everyone loved. I used pre cooked chicken and shredded this. I also added onion, capsicum and corn for extra veggies! Yummy

Really tasty! Used corn tortillas and topped with cilantro & avocado. I’ll probably add some black beans and/or corn next time.

Is alright for someone who likes enchiladas
Sue 15 Mar
This recipe was so easy I didn’t think it would have much flavor...I was wrong!! It’s delicious and easy for a week night dinner! I will definitely make it again!

It's impossible to find a recipe everyone in my family will eat and love. This is one of those recipes. It'll be on repeat!

A couple of issues with this recipe. It’s 11 290 calorie servings, but only 1 pound of chicken. How many are actually eating that size? Also, for 290 calories, you get 41% if your daily sodium, which is very high. Good idea but I’ll try it with double the chicken, homemade refried beans and enchilada sauce, and less cheese.
Ames 15 Feb
good and simple. i used mild sauce, think next time will spice it up a bit.
Kathy 12 Feb
Very good, easy to make. Served with chips. Next time I’ll probably add green chili’s to spice it up.

Easy to make and tasty! I did not have the proper pan to make it and it still came out great! I would have liked a little more flavor or kick. I used plain, boiled chicken so I bet it would be great if you added additional seasoning to that!

Took a little longer than time said above but was worth it because everyone enjoyed it! might put a bit less refried beans in next time, other than that was pretty simple and tasted great!

I tried this, it was so good my son even liked it. It was simple and tasty and we all liked it. I know there are probably a lot of things you could do to make it a little different but I just like simple and easy.

This is what I call no-fail deliciousness. It has become such a staple dish & I don't think I've ever made it the same way twice (love to add quinoa in too when I have a little extra time or leftovers that need to be used up) but the family asks for it over & over again. They see this casserole & think I've worked on it for hours, as if it's lasagna! If only they knew 😉
Chantelle C. 21 Apr 2016
Awesome... And taste great!! Would definitely make it again ... Would no add anything to it ...,.,, Love, love , this recipe
Bnice G. 3 Apr 2016
I used corn tortillas and fiesta shredded cheese, it was delicious! I used more chicken then what the recipe called for so next time I'll use more sauce.
Patti D 26 Mar 2016
My fiancé and I enjoyed this very much. He took leftovers to work - that means it's good stuff! We livened it up with some sour cream and cholula hot sauce. Delicious!

I made this for a staff lunch at work. I used Taco Cheese for more flavor, but kept everything else the same. Everyone loved it! I have been asked for the recipe several times.

I have made this recipe 3 times.....always a hit!!! I have used cheddar cheese too, which I like for the stronger flavor. For kids, I recommend staying with mild enchilada sauce. I cut the tortillas in half circles.....easier to fit and cover the dish. Better the second day when the flavors blend together more.
