Ingredients
  

  • 2 large boneless chicken breasts
  • celery tops {optional}
  • salt & pepper
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 large onion chopped
  • 1/2 yellow pepper chopped
  • 1/2 orange pepper chopped
  • 1/2 zucchini sliced and chopped
  • 1 yellow squash sliced and chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 1/2-1 cup white sauce or Alfredo
  • 3 oz cream cheese or Velveeta cubed {optional}
  • 4 oz. grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 oz. grated Monterey Jack or Mozzarella
  • 8 large flour tortillas

Instructions
 

  • Place chicken in deep sauce pan with water to cover and season well with salt and pepper. Add celery tops. Bring to a boil.
  • Once water is boiling, cover pan and turn off heat. Set pan aside for just a minute or two so it doesn’t boil over and then return it to the still warm eye.
  • The chicken will continue to slowly cook, {poach} as the burner cools, while you prepare vegetables.
  • Melt 1 T butter in skillet and drizzle with olive oil. Add chopped vegetables and cook over medium, stirring occasionally until softened, about 10 minutes. Add white sauce and cubed cheese.
  • Remove chicken from broth and shred or chop. If it’s not cooked all the way through, don’t worry, it will finish while enchiladas are baking.
  • Add chicken to vegetables and sauce and stir. Season with salt & pepper.
  • Lay flour tortillas out and divide filling evenly, placing several heaping spoonfuls in a line down the center.
  • Roll up and place seam side down in greased baking dish pushing them closely together.
  • Cover with grated cheese.
  • At this point dish can be refrigerated until baking up to 24 hours.
  • Bake uncovered for 30-45 minutes.
  • Baking time will depend on temperature of dish before cooking. Cover loosely with foil if necessary if cheese is getting too brown.
  • Separate enchiladas to serve or cut into squares
