  • 1 fully cooked rotisserie chicken shredded
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 5 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon dried chili powder
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 pound Monterey jack cheese shredded, divided
  • 1 (16 ounces) can green enchilada sauce
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • flour tortillas
  • fresh cilantro optional
  • sliced green onions optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the honey, lime juice, chili powder, and garlic; toss with the shredded chicken.  Marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  • In another medium bowl, combine the enchilada sauce and the cream. Pour 1/2 cup of the sauce on the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 baking pan.
  • Fill the flour tortillas with chicken and shredded cheese and roll, reserving 1 cup of cheese for topping. Place the enchiladas seam side down into the prepared pan. Pour the remaining sauce over top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden. Sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro or green onions just before serving.
