Shredded Chicken Enchiladas { gluten free }

Have I told you how incredible Cappellos is? I was craving enchiladas but you know, the whole “I don’t eat tortillas” thing put a damper on it because gluten free tortillas are just not good. So, Cappellos lasagna sheets to the rescue!  You will love these shredded chicken enchiladas, I promise.

But before we get to that – look at this amazing t-shirt my husband got me for Christmas. Isn’t it amazing?

I think it might be my official Sunday Food Prep uniform. That is, until I spill too much food on it and have to change halfway through. You would think that after all this time I would either learn to be a little less messy, or put on an apron. But nope, I just continue to make messes and get stains on my white t-shirts.

Okay, now for the real reason that you are here – enchiladas!

Processed with VSCOcam with 5 preset

What To Do

Preheat oven to 350. Bring a large pot of water to boil over high heat then add chicken breasts. Cook for about 25 minutes until cooked through then remove from water and let cool. Shred chicken breasts with a fork.

In a small sauce pan, bring 19oz enchilada sauce and 1 cup chicken broth to a boil, stirring occasionally and then remove from heat.

In a large mixing bowl, combine green chiles, 10oz enchilada sauce, onion, shredded chicken, cumin, salt + pepper and mix well.

In a medium baking dish, pour a ladle full of your enchilada sauce on the bottom of the pan. Then, place two lasagna sheets on top of the sauce. (Cappellos lasagna sheets are long enough that you will be able to fold them over). Top the lasagna sheets with half of the shredded chicken mixture, some sauce and some cheese then fold closed. Pour sauce and cheese on top, then place another lasagna sheet on top of each. Fill with the remaining chicken mixture, some sauce and some cheese and then fold closed. Top off with the remaining enchilada sauce, more cheese and sliced olives!

Cover with aluminum foil and then bake for 35-40 minutes.

    1. Thanks for your comment! I haven’t frozen this meal, because it is too delicious not to finish 😉 but I would think it freezes well. Cappellos brand lasanga sheets come frozen, so I am not sure if you would want to thaw then refreeze that particular brand. But, you can use any type of lasagna sheets, and I think they would be a great batch meal to freeze!
