Honey-Lime Chicken Enchiladas

Some of my favorite recipes seem to come from blogger Good Thymes and Good Food. This one is no exception. :) Delicious! Original recipe linked above.

  • 6 tbsp. honey
  • 5 tbsp. lime juice, from 2-3 limes
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tbsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (I like to cook mine in the crock pot in chicken broth).
  • 6 whole wheat and flax tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (I used Cheddar because that's what I had. Monterrey Jack is suggested)
  • 16 oz. red enchilada sauce
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix the first 5 ingredients together.
  3. Mix in the shredded chicken.
  4. Pour a little of the enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 9x9 baking dish, to cover evenly.
  5. Roll chicken and some shredded cheese in each tortilla and place seam-side down in the dish.
  6. Pour the remainder of the enchilada sauce over the enchiladas.
  7. Sprinkle about 1/2 cup of cheese on top.
  8. Cover with foil and cook for 20 mins. Uncover and cook for an additional 10 mins, or until top is crispy.
