Food Fun Friday- Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas



This treat got a BIG thumbs up from Mr. Produce

HONEY LIME CHICKEN ENCHILADAS

4 chicken breasts-shredded
4 tablespoons lime juice-or juice from a lime
5 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
6-8 flour tortillas
mexican cheese or cheddar-we only had cheddar on hand
1 can green enchilada sauce

Mix together the chicken, lime juice, honey, chili powder, and garlic powder. Layer a small amount of your enchilada sauce on the bottom of your 9x13 pan. On your tortillas put about 1/4 a cup of your chicken mixture, then sprinkle with cheese and roll up. Place seam side down. Once all rolled up, pour the enchilada sauce on your enchiladas. Then sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

yum yum

and as I've learned the only way to get really good shredded chicken is to cook it in the crockpot-
That tips free.

That really looks good. Sometimes I buy an already cooked rotisserie chicken at the store to use in recipes like this one. They tend to be moist also. I'm going to try these for dinner tonight! Thanks for the suggestion.
