Easy Creamy White Chicken Enchiladas Tips

This dish is so easy to make, but there are a few tips that will help you make the best creamy white chicken enchiladas ever.

  • First, make sure to shred your chicken breasts before adding them to the enchilada filling. This will ensure that they’re nice and tender when you bite into them.
  • Second, don’t be afraid to add extra cheese! The more, the better in my opinion.
  • Finally, if you’re looking for a little bit of a crunch, feel free to add some chopped green onions or sliced jalapeños on top of the enchiladas before serving.

Easy Creamy White Chicken Enchiladas Variations

  1. Use shredded chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts for a richer flavor.
  2. Substitute the sour cream for Greek yogurt to save on calories.
  3. Add some chopped green chiles to the enchilada filling for a little bit of heat.
  4. Swap out the white cheese for a more flavorful variety like cheddar or pepper jack.
  5. Top the enchiladas with avocado, tomatoes, or crumbled bacon for extra flavor and texture.

What is the best way to prepare shredded chicken?

The easiest way to prepare shredded chicken is by cooking it either on the grill, boiling it, or cooking in your Instant Pot or slow cooker. Then, place the chicken in a stand mixer bowl and start the mixer (with the paddle attachment) on low.

What can I serve with this?

  • Sour Cream
  • Salsa or Pico de Gallo
  • Guacamole
  • Refried Beans
  • Mexican Rice
  • Cilantro
  • Lettuce

Could I use corn tortillas instead?

Yes! Feel free to use any tortillas you like. Corn tortillas work just as well as flour. The flavor will be different, so keep that in mind. You can also use low-carb or gluten-free tortillas too.

How Long Can You Keep This In The Fridge?

Leftover cream white chicken enchiladas will last up to 3 days in the fridge. Reheat in the oven at 350 degrees for 10–15 minutes or until they are hot.

Can You Freeze This?

Yes, cover with aluminum foil, then add a lid. Freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw in the fridge before reheating.

Can I make this ahead of time?

While you can bake it ahead of time and refrigerate leftovers, it’s not advisable to prepare it ahead of time. The flour shells will become soggy, and it’s not going to be as appetizing. Instead, prep the shredded chicken ahead of time and refrigerate until you are ready to prepare.
