Doesn't he look beautiful?
After he is done cooking, I remove him from the pot and let him cool for about 30 min and then I start "pickin' me some chicken"! I can pick a chicken almost clean, my mama didn't raise no fool! I will divide the meat into 3 containers and put in fridge until needed that week for said recipe or even freeze for a later date. This chicken cost me $3.99 and I used him for 3 recipes, not bad!
CHICKEN ENCHILADA CASSEROLE
Cast of Characters:
2 cups diced chicken, cooked
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
10 corn tortillas, prefer GF but if they are 100% corn I seem to do ok
1 can enchilada sauce
2 small cans tomato sauce
1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
2 cups fresh leaf spinach
I preheat the oven to 350 and spray 9x13 with non stick cooking spray. In one bowl I mix Enchilada Sauce and Tomato Sauce. I start by soaking tortillas in that mixture 2 at a time. Lay 5 of the tortillas along bottom of baking dish. It is OK to overlap. Next I pour my chicken evenly topped by the beans and then the spinach. I then pour 1/2 of cheese over top. Top with the remaining soaked 5 tortillas, cover with foil and bake for 55 min. Remove foil and cover with remaining cheese, bake uncovered for 7-8 minutes. Remove from oven, let set for 15 min and serve. I top with sour cream. Yum! Depending on piece size it will serve 12-16.
This is an easy recipe that the whole family enjoys. It makes great leftovers for the rest of the week!
