It was a hit! Everyone loved it. Very moist and flavorful and baked nicely. Good presentation and great leftovers! The nice thing about this recipe is that you can add and change so many things about it to really make it exactly what you want. The amounts do not need to be exact, which is another plus for me. Just layered it until it looked right and popped it in the oven for 30 minutes. It sat for about 10 minutes and then we chowed down!
I did make a few tweaks, though:
Boiled and shredded the chicken breast (I prefer it this way for a Mexican dish - very tender and quick to cook)
*Here's a tip: use your stand mixer to shred the chicken. It turns an arduous, dual fork process into a one-step wonder!)
Used a packet of pre-made taco seasoning. I love this flavor and cannot seem to create it myself.
Added an entire onion, finely chopped and pre-cooked.
Used green enchilada sauce instead of red just per preference.
Overall great recipe and such a crowd pleaser! Did our own chips and guacamole and some refried beans on the side, a quick side salad and you have a well-rounded meal. Well, don't forget the peanut butter brownies for dessert. ;)
