Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Looking for a quick weeknight recipe or need a dish for a party or pot-luck dinner. This recipe is for you. It only takes about 45 minutes from start to finish (providing you have the shredded chicken done). This recipe is from one based on a post from Handle The Heat.

Ingredients
4-5 cups of shredded chicken (4-5 chicken breasts)
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup frozen corn thawed
3 green onions chopped
28 oz can of enchilada sauce
1/2 cup 2% Greek Yogurt
Corn tortillas
3 cups shredded cheese ( I used Mexican mix)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Spray a 13 x 9 inch or lasagna pan with nonstick cooking spray

In a large bowl combine the chicken, corn, cumin, cayenne pepper, green onions, salt and pepper, chili and garlic powder. Stir well.

  1. Oh, that sure looks yummy! I will give that a try. Thanks for sharing Kathy.

  2. I’ll plan to roast chicken pieces for dinner one night next week and make extra to have leftovers for this meal for another night. My boys will love this. Simple and flavorful, can’t wait.
