Step 2: Poach Your Chicken!

Make sure to cut any excess fat off the breasts before you put them in the pot!

Then, place them in a pan and cover them with 2-3 inches of water and bring to a boil. Once it's boiling, reduce heat to a simmer, cover and let it do its thing for 15 minutes for thawed chicken, 20 for frozen.

When it's done, just take it off the heat and lie the breasts on a plate to rest.

I had a little bit of homemade taco seasoning on hand, so I added a couple of pinches of that. You can add bay leaf, cumin, chili powder - anything that will work with the rest of the flavors in the recipe.

While this is going, mince and dice the veggies.
Sorry typo- bland**<br>Here are some pics too!
I signed up especially to say a huge thank you to you. I am a beginner and wanted to make something super tasty for my husband. It turned out amazing and we both loved it. I always worry recipes will be blamd but yours had our sort of kick! Thank you so much for posting!
I made this tonight. It was amazing, I added a bit more chili powder and cuman. I also replaced the jalape&ntilde;os with green peppers. It turned out amazing. thank you
This looks good, but I wouldn't call it enchilada xD
mouth watering so delicious
This looks AMAZING! I'm a enchiladas fan, I'm so trying this
That looks SOOO good!!!!!!
Look delicious. Thanks for posting.
Wow! they look so delicious, I might give it a try today :)
Awesome recipe! The enchiladas turned out delicious.. hardest part was finding corn tortillas in Ottawa. Made <a href="http://www.emmanuellelaurence.com/blog/?p=72">a post </a>about it, linked your recipe. Thanks!<br> <br>
Where I'm from, in New Mexico, we layer instead of roll our enchiladas. I imagine you could layer the tortillas in this recipe?
Yeah, I'm sure that would be fine. I might even try that next time. :)
the absolute best corn tortillas i've had for enchiladas are El Miligaro (sp) but I was disappointed to find out you can only get them in the Chicago area and parts of Texas (they bake them fresh daily). They go so well with enchilada sauce it's ridiculous. They almost have a floral scent right through their paper package.<br><br>Great looking recipe, I will have to try.
Mouth watering :o
Tortilla tips: A: Traditionally (least healthy) the tortillas take a quick hot oil bath. Heat about 1/2 inch of oil (vegetable or canola oil) in a frying pan and dip the tortillas one by one. B: heat the tortilla in a hot skillet, until they are pliable. C: Stick about 10 tortillas in at a time in a ziploc baggie/or wrap them in a damp napkin and put them in the microwave for about 20 - 30 seconds (depending on the watts of your microwave). Here's a link for <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Homemade-Red-Chile-Sauce/">homemade enchilada sauce</a>...for when you have a little more time. Great i'ble.
YUM! This reads delicious so MUST taste delicious! Check your local for a Tortiarilla, you will be pleasantly surprised by the improvement with fresh, preservative-free tortillas.
