I came up with this recipe because I wanted the flavor of chicken enchiladas….without the carbs and calories of the traditional dish. So I took away the tortillas and simply baked the chicken in enchilada sauce. And as a HUGE TIMESAVING shortcut, I simply used a rotisserie chicken instead of cooking the chicken myself!
