Chicken Enchilada Cassarole

11 Sep

I had an opportunity recently to be completely alone in my house which almost never happens. I decided on getting a jump start on dinner while checking out my bestie’s wedding photos that just got posted online.

I wanted a variation on my normal veggie enchilada stack so I decided to try a green sauce and only had one chicken breast so I made due with what I had and it turned out delicious!

Chicken & Green Chili Enchilada Cassarole
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 chicken breast
1 19 oz can of medium green chili enchilada sauce (I used Las Palmas brand)
1/2 green bell pepper chopped
1/2 red bell pepper chopped
1/2 yellow onion
1 zucchini quartered and chopped
Shredded cheddar cheese
White corn tortillas

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Heat oil in a medium size pan, add chicken breast and cover with enchilada sauce. Cook chicken through and remove from pan to slice or shred. Add vegetables to pan and sauté until cooked through. Add about 1/4 cup more enchilada sauce. In a separate baking dish spread a couple tablespoons over the bottom of the dish, layer one or two tortillas, sprinkle cheese to layer, add chicken and vegetable mixture, more tortillas, repeat, when at the top of the dish cover with additional sauce and top with more cheese. Cover with foil and place in a preheated oven for approximately 10 minutes, remove foil and bake an additional 5 minutes until cheese is bubbly.
Garnish with avocado, tomatoes, onion, sour cream, etc.
I also served mine with Amy’s Organic Refried Bkack Beans which I was trying for the first time and totally loved. Spanish rice or tortilla chips would be great as well.
