  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken breast into skillet and cook and stir until no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes. Divide chicken, 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, and onions evenly among the tortillas then roll up each tortilla and place seam side down in a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  3. Heat the cream of chicken soup and green chiles in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in sour cream. Continue stirring until heated though, about 10 min. Pour sauce over tortillas and sprinkle remaining Cheddar cheese on top. Bake in the preheated oven until sauce is bubbling and the Cheddar cheese is melted, about 25 minutes.

I have made these enchiladas for years and everyone loves them. A couple things I do differently....I always shred my chicken instead of cubing it - I really think it improves the dish and I spoon some of the soup mixture on top of the chicken inside of the tortillas then spread the rest of the soup mix on top. Awesome meal with some mexican rice and a simple salad.

Pretty good, but a little bland. They'll need some doctoring next time. Will definitely make again, just use this recipe as a base.

You will love this. I use a little cream cheese in the sour cream mixture to make an even richer taste. I also use a extra chicken breast and make HUGE enchiladas. When you do this, it's hard to get them out of the pan without them falling apart, but by the time they make it out of the oven, no one cares. Try it. You'll like it!

I loved this recipe! I made it last night for my husband and picky 8 year old and they ate it all! I lowered the fat and calories by using 97% fat free tortillas, weight watchers shredded cheese, and fat free sour cream. They didn't know the difference and it was yummy!

This is an awesome recipe. I did make a few changes. I sauted the chicken, onions, and added garlic salt and fresh mushrooms. I took the advice of the other review on here and made them bigger and I used more cheese. It turned out great and my man loved it!

I like this recipe however I have done things a little different. I stir in the soup mix with the chicken, add a block of cream cheese, can of sweet corn, can of black beans and a can of rotel (spicey). I put the cheese on top.

This is an excellent recipe. I did change it up by using 3 chicken breasts, 3/4 8oz block of cream cheese, 8-10 mild jalepenos chopped (adding them to the sour cream mixture) and spooning it on the chicken before rolling the enchiladas up giving it a superb flavor.

This is great recipe. I love the sauce. I did stuff them bigger and used more cheese. Next time, I want to add more spices and maybe peppers with the chicken. Will make again though!
