Chicken Enchilada Recipes

Published on March 22, 2015 By Lauren

These Chicken Enchiladas might be one of the greates things I have ever eaten. Plus, there are instructions to make them gluten free!

Looking for the easiest of all Chicken Enchilada Recipes? Look no further. Very few ingredients, and SO good! Plus, this is perfect for freezer cooking! I also included gluten-free modifications as well 🙂

Note that the recipe below is for a double batch, so if you only want a single batch, you will need to half it.

There are two parts of this recipe with gluten – the cream of chicken soup and the flour tortillas. For the tortillas, you simply need to sub them out for a gluten free product. I use Aldi's LiveGFree wraps, and they are amazing! Now for the cream of chicken soup:

Gluten-Free Cream of Chicken Soup (only do this if you are using the gluten-free modifications)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 6 Tbsp gluten-free flour
  • 2 gluten-free chicken bullion cubes
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions:

  1. In a medium sauce pan, whisk milk with the flour over medium heat.
  2. Add the butter, bullion and salt.
  3. When it starts to bubble, reduce heat and stir for a couple minutes.
  4. Remove from heat.

Ok – now you've got your gluten-free cream of chicken soup (if that's your thing). Now for the enchiladas:

Soup and cheese mixture

Start with the salsa, sour cream, cream of chicken soup and the spices.

Then add the chicken and 1 cup of the cheese to 2 cups of the soup mixture. Mix it together well and get ready to scoop into the tortillas!

As you can see in the background, I used the gluten free wraps from Aldi. They're so good!

Then freeze or bake. So good! These can be baked from frozen too. Just bake them covered for about an hour at 250, then uncovered for a half hour at 350.

As mentioned – the recipe below is for 2 pans of enchiladas, so cut in half in you only want to make once pan.
