While I often do not change the recipe much, with this I omitted a few things. I didn't marinate the chicken and I'm glad I didn't! The flavor that the chicken gets from the tomatos, onion, and green chilies is awesome. I also didn't dip my tortillas in heavy cream. When the directions called for Cream of Chicken Soup I was a little worried. I wanted to make a very authentic type of enchilada and that concerned me, but honestly it didn't take away from anything. I do feel it's a necessary ingredient though because it makes the sauce not so thin. As for the sauce, it takes FOREVER to reduce. When adding it to the chicken know that it will not be a 'paste', and truethfully, do you really want a paste?! When putting the sauce in the bottom of the pan I just strained out the tomatoes, onion, and chilies and laid them all on the bottom, then I rolled up the tortilas and poured more of the cooked sauce over them. Why add a pre-made generic tasting 'Enchilada Sauce' when you have this awesome sauce YOU MADE?! I added a small amount just because I bought the stuff, but next time it's a big ol' NO. Very time consuming recipe but VERY VERY WORTH IT.
