Easy Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

Who needs Taco Tuesday when you can have enchiladas everyday? These white chicken enchiladas are a delicious and easy recipe for the entire family. My family loves Mexican food, and enchiladas are one of our favorites.

These white chicken enchiladas are so easy to make – you just need a few simple ingredients. And, they’re always a hit with my family. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. They are great the next day for leftovers as well.

They are also great to take to a party or to fix when you are having guests over.

Skinny White Chicken Enchiladas

The best part about these skinny chicken enchiladas is that they are healthier than traditional enchiladas. I use low carb tortillas and low-fat cheese to lighten them up.

The Greek yogurt adds protein and the creaminess of sour cream without all the fat.

Using chicken breasts instead of thighs also helps to reduce the fat and calories.

Although this meal is super simple to make, you can cook the chicken in the slow cooker to make the preparation even easier!

To add your own flavor twist, you can add hot sauce, salsa, beef or any other ingredients that you love!

What to Serve with Chicken Enchiladas

These easy cheesy chicken enchiladas are a delicious and hearty meal on their own. But, if you’re looking for some sides to go with this recipe, I recommend serving it with one of these side dishes:

  • Mexican rice
  • Cilantro lime rice
  • Black beans
  • A simple side salad
  • Corn or roasted corn
  • Avocado slices or guacamole
