“I have always loved the chicken enchiladas from El Chico. I decided to come up with my own recipe based on how I remember them. I was so excited because there were no leftovers. I used about 4 chicken legs and 3 small breasts for these enchiladas and I had about 1 and 1/2 cups leftover. I took a few bites to the office the next day and these are now requested for our Christmas potluck.”
