White Chicken EnchiladaSauce

Enchiladas are a Mexican dish consisting of corn tortillas rolled around a filling of shredded meat, cheese, vegetables, beans, and sometimes eggs. Traditionally, the filling is cooked in a skillet until tender, then spooned onto the tortilla and rolled up. However, many people prefer to bake them instead.

How Long To Bake Chicken Enchiladas

To ensure that the enchiladas are baked properly, the baking time needs to be adjusted according to the thickness of the tortillas used. For thin tortillas, such as flour tortillas, the baking time is about 15 minutes; whereas thicker tortillas, such as whole wheat tortillas, take longer to bake. It is important to note that if you choose to use thick tortillas, the baking process takes longer because the tortillas absorb more moisture from the filling.

How To Make Chicken Enchiladas With Cream Cheese

Enchilada casserole is a delicious dish to serve during any occasion. It is easy to make and very versatile. This recipe uses cream cheese instead of sour cream. It is a great way to get rid of extra calories while still enjoying a traditional Mexican dish.

Step 1: Gather your ingredients.

You will need: 1/2 cup 120g shredded sharp Cheddar cheese 1/4 cup 60ml milk

Step 2: Combine the chicken and cheese.

Mix together the chicken and cheese using a fork.

Step 3: Roll the filling into the tortilla.

Rolling the filling into the tortillas is easy. Just roll from the middle towards the edges until you reach the edge. It’s important not to roll the filling too tightly because if you do, the filling won’t get cooked properly.

Step 4: Make the roux for the sauce with the butter, flour, milk, and chicken broth.

To make the roux, melt the butter in a medium sized pan over medium heat. Add the flour and stir constantly until the mixture turns light yellow. This takes about 2 minutes. Then slowly pour in the milk while stirring constantly. Continue to stir until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and set aside. Step 5: Prepare the chicken for the enchiladas. Place the chicken breasts in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. In another bowl combine the cream cheese, sour cream, cilantro, garlic powder, chili powder, and lime juice. Mix well. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over each breast. Place the chicken breasts back in the bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step 5: Add the cream cheese and green chili to the white sauce.

To make the white sauce, whisk together the heavy cream, half and half, and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, whisking frequently. Once the mixture starts to thicken, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 1 minute. Whisk in the Parmesan cheese and remove from heat. Set aside. Step 6: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Step 7: Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Cook the chicken for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until cooked through. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until done. Let cool slightly. Cut into strips.

Step 6: Pour the white sauce over the enchiladas.

Step 2: Place the tortillas in a single layer on a clean surface. Spread about ½ cup of the cheese evenly over each tortilla. Top with the chicken, followed by the black beans. Step 3: Roll up the tortillas tightly. Secure with toothpicks. Step 4: Arrange the rolled enchiladas seam-side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes.

Step 7: Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and bake for up to 20 minutes.

To make the enchilada filling, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar cheese, green chiles, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and taco seasoning mix together in a bowl until well combined. Set aside. Place the flour in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish, whisk the eggs. Dip the tortillas into the flour, shaking off any excess. Next dip the tortillas into the egg mixture, allowing the excess to drip back into the bowl. Finally, place the tortillas into the skillet and cook for 1 minute per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F 175 degrees C. Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with nonstick spray.

Step 7: Sprinkle the remainder of the cheese on top and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. For the white chicken enchiladas, preheat the oven to 350°F 175°C. Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds longer. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Top with half of the shredded chicken and sprinkle with half of the cheese. Bake for 25 minutes.
