Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. of chicken, shredded
  • 15 white corn tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 cup yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
  • 3 cups of low sodium Chicken Stock
  • 2 {4 oz.} green chilies, diced

  • 2 tablespoons of arrowroot
  • 1 cup of low-fat mozzarella cheese, shredded

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Shred 1 lb. of cooked chicken breast. Set aside. {I poached mine but you could use rotisserie if you’re looking for a time saver}
  3. Heat a large skillet to medium high heat. Add coconut oil, once melted add 1 cup of chopped yellow onion. Saute until translucent, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Next add minced garlic cloves, saute for 30 seconds. Add in ground coriander, ground cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir and then add in chicken stock and green chilies.
  5. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Next add greek yogurt, mix until yogurt is completely combined then whisk in arrowroot. {found in the spices section, acts as a thickener like flour or cornstarch} In a 9×13″ pan, spread a small amount of sauce on the bottom.
  7. Alternate layers of tortillas, suizas enchilada sauce, shredded chicken and repeat. Finish with shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese on top.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes.
  9. Serve with freshly diced avocado, tomatoes, and cilantro.
