Easy Chicken Enchiladas Recipe

This post may contain affiliate links.

I’m a fan of easy meals.  I usually buy chicken in bulk when I find a great price on it.  I’ll season and bake it all at once, chop or pull it and freeze into 4 cup portions to use with just about any recipe calling for chicken.

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

1 lb. chicken
season salt or soul seasoning
6 oz sour cream
4 cups/1 lb. shredded cheese (I like a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella)
10 tortillas (I use smaller ones for the kids)
1 can cream chicken soup
1/8 cup milk
2 tsp butter
1 medium onion
1 tsp minced garlic or 1/4 tsp garlic powder or 1 garlic clove

If chicken is not already precooked, bake chicken with season salt or soul seasoning, then pull or chop when cooled. (I cook chicken in bulk, pull or chop it, and freeze in 4 cup portions to make meal preparation easy peasy)
Chop onion, then saute in butter (with garlic clove if applicable)
Mix sour cream, soup, milk, onion and garlic into large bowl.
Then add a little more than half the cheese to the mixture.

Add chicken to mixture
Marinate mixture to your preference. After marinating, place a heaping tablespoon of mixture off center on each tortilla and roll.
Lay into 9×13 baking dish or two.
Spread remaining mixture on top.
Bake for 20 mins at 350 degrees.
Top with remaining cheese (or more to preference) and bake for 5 mins longer.
Cool 5-10 mins before serving :-)Usually I make a double or triple batch and freeze the extras. Flash freeze on a tray then bag.  Be sure to move them to a dish to the fridge for defrosting 24 hours in advance, then bake as per original directions.

Here are some other meals for freezer cooking from some of my blogging friends!


  1. Must try this one! The other recipe I have called for cilantro (and way too much if you ask me). They were good, but didnt go over well will the kids…

  2. Yummy!
