The best part is the easy clean up at the end!


  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 10 oz can red enchilada sauce
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese

For topping (optional):

Recipe Notes:

  • You can cut the chicken in half, chunks, or use chicken tenderloins in lieu of full chicken breasts to make serving easier and cooking quicker. Cooking time may be reduced and will depend on the size and thickness of the chicken.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the refrigerator or in the freezer for up to a month.

To ensure this recipe is gluten free, make sure to buy gluten free enchilada sauce and double check all ingredients.
