An extra special chicken enchilada.
Original recipe called for using left over turkey. I didn’t always have turkey, and the chicken seems to be much moister when prepared as directed; my family wants it mixed more often than just when I had left over turkey!
This can be made the day ahead for company dinner and is very impressive as a company meal. It also freezes very well.
You can serve a tossed salad or any other vegetable of your choice…guacamole, salsa and chips work well. And, I guess you could do the traditional rice and beans…but my family prefers a green vegetable as a side and maybe a congealed salad.

“Antique Recipe”
Mother used to make this often…it was the only “Mexican” food we ate back then, other than her homemade chili or tamales from the guy on the corner next to Sears & Roebuck!!
