This time I cooked chicken breasts in enchilada sauce especially for this recipe. But any type of chicken would work just fine, too. Sometimes I used leftovers cooked or baked chicken if I have it in the fridge or freezer. That makes this recipe super simple and easy. It’s also great idea how to use up leftovers chicken. Rotisserie chicken would work great, too. After all, this is just simple enchilada recipe, it’s not exact science!
