Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas

Are you looking for something completely delicious to add into your dinner rotation?  Well, let me introduce you to my new Fav!!! Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas.  I know!  The name alone sends visions of deliciousness running through your mind, doesn’t it?

This recipe uses an already roasted rotisserie chicken from the market or, in my case, from Costco so cooking time is cut down a little. Yay. Also since the rotisserie chickens from Costco are gianormous, I used all the dark meat and roughly 1 1/4 of the breasts. I thought it was a great ratio of chicken to cheese.

I mixed the chicken and the honey lime mixture late in the morning and popped it in a one-gallon resealable bag in the fridge until it was time to get dinner ready. I think the extra marinating time definitely added a little extra yum factor.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine the honey, lime juice, chili powder and garlic; toss with the shredded chicken.  Marinate for at least 30 minutes.
