Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas

These are the best enchiladas I have had!  They are different...and they are GOOD!

This recipe is from the Six Sisters Stuff recipe book.  I love their book..really!  It has great pictures of each recipe and practical recipes that everyone would eat. Here is what it looks like.  I have been loving making some of their recipes.  And that triple chocolate cake on the front...heavenly!  Just sayin'!

This recipe and MORE can also be found on their blog HERE!

Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas Recipe:
6 tablespoons honey
5 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pound chicken, cooked and shredded (I usually boil 4 chicken breasts and shred them)
8-10 flour tortillas
1 pound Monterrey jack cheese, shredded
16 ounces green enchilada sauce
1 cup heavy cream
Whisk the first four ingredients and toss with shredded chicken in a Zip-loc bag.  Let it marinate in the fridge for at least a 1/2 hour, but preferably a half day or so.  Pour about 1/2 cup enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9X13 baking pan.  Fill the tortillas with chicken, saving marinade, and shredded cheese, saving about 1 cup of cheese to sprinkle on top of enchiladas.  Put rolled tortillas in 9×13 pan as you go.  Mix the remaining enchilada sauce with the cream and leftover marinade (if there is any).  Pour sauce on top of the enchiladas.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until brown and crispy on top.
