Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas

If you go to food blogs, you've probably seen this one. Everyone who tries it wants to post it, because it is so good( and their pictures look a lot better than mine!). I think it originated on The Sister's Cafe blog (see sidebar) , but I've seen it on a couple of others, too. It's just a great combination of flavors, and pretty easy to make.

Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas
Two whole (or four halves) boneless, skinless Chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
Put breasts in sauce to marinate:
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 T. chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder (or can use fresh garlic- that's what I did)

Mix ingredients together and let the meat soak in the delicious sauce for at least 30 minutes.

Other ingredients:
2 cans green enchilada sauce (I used bottled)
Flour tortillas
Grated Cheese (Mexican mix, cheddar, Mozzarella- whatever you like)
One of the bloggers suggested adding 1 cup sour cream. I think I'll try it next time.

Spray a 13 x 9 pan with cooking spray and pour in enough green enchilada sauce to cover bottom.
Fill tortillas with cheese and chicken mix. Roll up enchiladas and nestle together in the pan. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the top and sprinkle with more cheese. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, turning on broiler at the end to brown the top. It's yummy! Oh, and the recipe said you could use pork instead of the chicken.

Do you know about how much salsa you used? My cans/jars of the stuff come in such different sizes. It would be hard for me to guess...
