Chicken enchiladas is one of the very first dishes I started to make when I began this blog journey. I used the Pioneer Woman’s recipe. My kids got me her first cookbook. I found her recipes very approachable. The recipes were definitely down home cooking. Down home cooking is what I am about, not fancy. This dinner was requested by my youngest son for the one dinner we ate at home while he was home for school.
I have done this dish so many times that I now can make my enchiladas from memory. The place that I have really added a lot of flavor is in the chicken. I tend to vary what I do with my chicken for my enchiladas. My kids love my smoked chicken. I have made my Smoked Chicken Avocado Enchiladas in the past with smoked chicken. This time, I made a spice marinade and marinated the chicken for 24 hours before cooking and assembling my chicken enchiladas.
