  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

For the white enchilada sauce

  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the cooked chicken and cream cheese. Mix well.
  3. In a separate saucepan, whisk together the chicken broth, sour cream, flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens.
  4. To assemble the enchiladas, spread a small amount of the white enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  5. Heat the corn tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds to make them pliable. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the chicken and cream cheese mixture onto the center of each tortilla. Roll tightly and place seam-side down in the baking dish.
  6. Pour the remaining white enchilada sauce over the top of the enchiladas, making sure they are fully coated.
  7. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top of the sauce.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. Remove from the oven and sprinkle chopped cilantro over the top of the enchiladas.
