Just 4 ingredients make up this Easy Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas recipe! Low carb flour tortillas are stuffed with chicken and cheese, topped with green enchilada sauce and even more cheese. Garnish with sour cream, another drizzle of the sauce and parsley. So good!

The first step is to poach a chicken breast in a good, flavorful chicken broth. I also seasoned with salt, pepper and my favorite all around spice blend, Mrs. Dash original. Since there are so few ingredients, it really pays to flavor the chicken well. A hand mixer makes quick work of the shredding. Where has this hack been all of my life?

I used mozzarella cheese, but you could use Monterey Jack or even Pepper Jack if you like things with a bit more spice.

Iā€™m also using low carb flour tortillas to keep the carbs down. I topped them with some of the shredded chicken and a bit of the cheese.

I used an 8ā€³ x 8ā€³ square glass pan and it fit four nicely. There is just enough sauce underneath to keep things from sticking and about another 1/4 cup on top.

Top with more cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees until golden and bubbling. Everything is technically already cooked, so you want to warm things through and melt that cheese.

Top with a bit more of the reserved green chile sauce, a dollop of sour cream and a garnish of parsley.
