My kids don't like spicy foods yet but I love enchiladas. I also shy away from preservatives so I love that this recipe is possible without using any. I used Fresh Direct spice rub and Dinosaur BBQ sauce but feel free to swap in your own favorites.
boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
FreshDirect Everything Rub or spice mix of your choice
canned crushed tomatoes
Dinosaur Honey Garlic BBQ sauce
grated monterey jack cheese
Heat vegetable oil in a skillet. Add chicken pieces and spice rub and saute with medium heat until chicken is cooked through.
In a medium saucepan, mix together crushed tomatoes and bbq sauce. Cover saucepan and let simmer under medium low heat for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Transfer 1/3 of the sauce to a baking dish, enough to well coat the bottom of the dish.
Heat each corn tortilla in a skillet until they are flexible enough to roll.
Assemble enchiladas by placing chicken mixture in a corn tortilla, rolling it and placing it in the baking dish. Cover enchiladas with the remaining sauce and the grated cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes and serve.

This chicken dish is full of rich flavor and sits in a white wine Swiss cheese sauce that serves very well over pasta, but can also stand alone.
These are a great lite lunch or supper idea and delicious!
Tastes just like Olive Garden's Fettuccine Alfredo recipe.
