What's Cooking? Wednesday

I am starting a new feature on Wednesdays... What's Cooking? Wednesdays!  This is a linky party for everyone to share their favorite recipes for busy teachers.  I will leave it open for a whole month so that you can find all of the recipes in one place and add more whenever you are inspired.  The only rules are that the recipes need to be fast, easy and delicious!

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas


This is one of my very favorite meals, and it is so easy to make!  I often use rotisserie chicken meat if I don't have any leftover chicken breasts in the house.  The original recipe is from Kevin and Amanda.  I have modified it so that it has less fat and calories.  We also use wheat tortillas instead of regular.  Enjoy!

Ingredients:
Pam spray
1 can Rotel tomatoes and green chilies, drained
1 (8 oz) pkg Neufatchel cream cheese, softened
2 cups chopped, cooked chicken breast
8 (8″) flour tortillas
2 cups shredded low fat Monterey Jack cheese
1 pint half and half

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9×13" glass baking dish with Pam. 
  2. Spray a skillet with Pam.  Add Rotel tomatoes and sautee for one minute.
  3. Stir in the Neufatchel and chicken.  Cook, stirring constantly until the cheese has melted.  
  4. Spoon 3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture into the center of each tortilla.  Roll up the tortillas and place edge side down in the baking dish.
  5. Sprinkle liberally with the Monterey Jack cheese, then drizzle with half and half.
  6. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  7. Uncover the dish, and continue to bake for 15 more minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
Let sit, then enjoy!
