I made this recipe for last night's dinner and it was REALLY REALLY good....the enchiladas came out so creamy and were just delicious.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 7 to 8 hours (LOW) • 3 to 4 hours (HIGH)
Yield: Makes 6 servings
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup chicken broth
1 small onion, diced
1/4 to 1/2 cup canned jalapeño peppers,* sliced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons whipping cream or milk
6 (7- to 8-inch) flour tortillas
6 thin slices American cheese or American cheese with jalapeño peppers

Cut each chicken breast lengthwise into 2 or 3 strips. Combine 1/2 cup flour and salt in resealable food storage bag. Add chicken strips and shake to coat with flour mixture. Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Brown chicken strips in batches 2 to 3 minutes per side. Place chicken into slow cooker.

Add chicken broth to skillet and scrape up any browned bits. Pour broth mixture into slow cooker. Add onion, jalapeño peppers and oregano. Cover; cook on LOW 7 to 8 hours or on HIGH 3 to 4 hours.

Blend remaining 2 tablespoons flour and cream in small bowl until smooth. Stir into chicken mixture. Cook, uncovered, on HIGH 15 minutes or until thickened. Spoon chicken mixture onto center of flour tortillas. Top with 1 cheese slice. Fold up tortillas and serve.

Serving Suggestion: This rich creamy chicken mixture can also be served over hot cooked rice.


  1. Thanks for hosting every week Sandra! I've got a good one today!

    Have a terrific day :)


  2. That sounds delicious!! Thanks so much for another great week.

    BTW--your blog took a really long time to load this morning--I had to refresh 3 times before it fully loaded?? hmm...not sure if it's just me.

  3. Hi Sandra,
    Great recipe. I was wondering if you would be able to find a slow cooker recipe this week. :) Are you enjoying your books?

  4. Thanks for hosting! I'm excited about your other recipe site with ALL the recipes! There were a couple I missed out on!

  5. tegdirb92 - I had the same problem this morning, not sure why it did it, blogger has been acting weird for me lately though.

  6. This looks good. Thanks for sharing!


  7. Hi Sandra thanks for hosting every week,this sounds really good..have a great day;=)

  8. Great recipe! I can't wait to try it out. Thanks for stopping by.

  9. Sounds YUMMY!
    Ok, so the home and pumpkin pictures have me mega sad for fall. I live in the southwest and no fall here (at least not within a 3 hour drive).
    I am a SAHM of two boys.
    Have a BLESSED day!

  10. I'm looking forward to trying these great recipes! This has been so nice for our family on those busy days! Thanks!

  11. I'd love to try these, but it's so hard to cook for just myself, and Kayla (who hardly eats anything for dinner!) and then have all these leftovers. I might have to wait until Joe gets back to make this one!

  12. Do you HAVE to brown the chicken first? Could I get away with just doing it all in the Crock Pot?

  13. Looks yummy Sandra, I'm so glad it is cooling off and time to make all these yummy recipes!

  14. Those enchiladas look so good. I love that you are going to have the recipes online. Thanks for doing this.

  15. Sandra,
    Have a Blessed Weekend, and miss you..come by sometime..."and be encouraged!!"
    Hugs to you,
