Creamy Chicken Enchilada Casserole

You want a great recipe for your leftover chicken?  Well, here’s something you’re gonna love… the Creamy Chicken Enchilada Casserole!  I usually make this when we have leftover rotisserie chicken, but you can also use your boneless chicken breast.  Just boil and shred the chicken first then you’re good to go!

There are different ways to make chicken enchilada.  Some people prefer red sauce and some likes it with white sauce.  This Creamy Chicken Enchilada Casserole is my favorite.  The cheesy and creamy sauce mixed with green chiles is just superb!  Easy to make too!  I’m sure you will love this recipe.  Enjoy!
