good. the recipe list on yummly is different than the list in the directions... chicken breasts not thighs and flour tortillas not corn. otherwise this is delicious and easy.

great .... modified a little for more flavor.... will make again
Easy fast and delicious
Great, easy to follow recipe. I read comments first; and as some thought original recipe “bland” I made adjustments as follows: subbed red onion for white, jalapeños for mild green chili’s, used a cup each of spicy and mild enchilada sauces. Also used a four cheese blend. Would definitely make again!

It was quite bland so I had to play around with different spices — cumin, white pepper, chili powder, cayenne, etc. As for the cheese, asadero is fantastic if you can get it
Perfect. My first time ever trying something like this. My family loved them

My family and i liked it but it wasnt the best enchilada recipe weve tried
Janet P. 6 May
It was really good. i used EVOO infused with garlic in it when cooking the chicken. Great flavor.

Alyssa 15 Apr
It turned out pretty well! I really enjoyed the balance of flavors. It wasn’t too hard to make at all.

I had some chicken precooked and shredded so that cut the cook time down by 4 hours. But I added a bit too much liquid and it wasn’t thickening, so I dried some corn tortilla strips and called it Chicken Enchilada Soup. Still 10/10, and low-carb friendly without the tortilla.
I used stewed tomatoes, diced tomatoes with chili’s and a few ounce of spaghetti sauce because that’s what I had. Not bad!
Not much flavor needed more spice and heat. Error with the directions to use corn or flour tortillas it lists both. Green onions made the recipe pop overall a good recipe when you doctor it up a bit.

Great recipe. Love these. Poached chicken breasts, shredded, then cooked in skillet with her homemade enchilada sauce, used jalapenos instead of diced chiles.

Used green enchilada sauce and home made tortillas great recipe that I will be doing again
Ryan Vangsnes 23 Dec 2017
Definitely making again. Used green enchilada sauce.
Kathy 28 Oct 2017
Great flavor. Didn’t preheat the instructions to slow cook, so I poached the chicken and then shredded it and simmered in the enchilada sauce for another 40 minutes. Turned out great.
Emma Kate 11 Oct 2017
Really good! I used homemade enchilada sauce to cut down on the sodium. I also used chicken breasts and added a can of drained black beans to the crock pot after the chicken had finished cooking. Will definitely make again! Next time I might add some more onion or use Queso Blanco to add a little more freshness.

Family loved it, it was something different and yummy will be doing it again soon . And I also added a lil spice to it
rebecca p. 21 Nov 2016
Added cream cheese before baking . Even better. I made it with 3 chicken breasts and still had left overs from 2 people
Megan R. 19 Aug 2016
Simple, direct, and delicious. My only critique is that the chicken lacked flavor, so I added Goya Adobo seasoning as well as Sazon Goya seasoning and it was just right. Definitely will try this recipe again! Thanks!
