Debbie Osmond's Chicken Enchiladas

I have this AWESOME cookbook called "Dining with Donny", which is a collection of recipes from Debbie Osmond, some of her family and some of his fans. I would post a picture of the cookbook, but will have to that later since my co-workers all want to borrow it and one of them has it at the moment.

Since I've had this cookbook, I wanted to make Debbie's famous Chicken Enchiladas but have never made them. Donny says it is his absolute favorite dish !

So, I had all ingredients on hand and 3 hungry co-workers, one of which who loves Donny just as much as I do and I decided to make it and take it to work. I must say that it was SO GOOD and I mean really good !! It wasn't what I quite expected though. I thought it would be enchildas but it was more of an enchilada casserole - super easy to make and very tasty.

It got 8 thumbs up (2 from me and 2 from each of my 3 hungry co-workers) - then they all wanted to borrow the cookbook!

That Debbie Osmond is one good cook - how could she not be when she has 6 men/boys to feed !

Debbie Osmond's Chicken Enchiladas

4 or 5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 can 26 oz cream of chicken soup
1 16 oz container of sour cream
1 small can of mild diced green chiles
1 doz small (3-4") round soft corn tortillas
2-3 cups grated cheese (cheddar and jack)

Boil the chicken breast with cut up onions until done (or do what I do and cook in crockpot on low for 4-6 hours until done), then cut the chicken into cubes

Mix together soup, sour cream and chilis in a bowl and add chicken and set aside

In a skillet heat olive oil (just enough to cover bottom). Place one tortilla in oil and just as it starts to bubble, turn over and heat the other side (a few seconds on each side - you don't want them to harden or be crispy, just heat them up) and then lay on paper towel to soak up excess oil. Repeat for all tortillas.

(Make layers)

In 9x13 pan lay 3-4 tortillas in bottom of pan, sprinkle cheese on top of tortillas. Then put 2 cups of the chicken/mixture on top of cheese and repeat till it's gone. Top with cheese.
Bake 350 degrees for approx. 45 minutes.
Pin It!
