Chicken Enchilada Casserole Recipes

This easy recipe looked and tasted great with very few ingredients and little prep! Try it and let me know what you think!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20-30 minutes

Total Time: 30-40 minutes


  • 1 lb raw chicken (I used breast) cut up
  • 5 -6 corn tortillas
  • 8 oz Enchilada sauce
  • 2/3 cup Monterey or your favorite melting cheese (I used veggie cheese)
  • Spritz spray oil


  1. Full disclosure here; I actually used about 2 lbs. of chicken breast since I wanted leftovers and extra protein. Cut up the chicken.
  2. Place the chicken in a pot with 1/3 of the Enchilada sauce. No extra water needed if you cook it slowly and stir often. I put on a lid to help capture the steam and help it cook but keep stirring until the chicken releases it's juices and helps with the liquid in the pot.

  4. I heated up my tortillas since they weren't the flat type.
  5. Spray the bottom of baking dish. Spread another third of the sauce on the bottom of a baking dish.
  6. Layer it with your tortillas.
  7. Shred up the chicken with two forks in the pan.
  8. Add a layer of the shredded chicken on the tortillas in the baking pan.

  10. Top with some sauce (you can use what is in the pot too) and 1/2 the cheese. Then more sauce and repeat to layer up to the top one more time.
  11. Bake in oven at 375F for about 20 minutes, just to melt the cheese and meld everything together.
