These Enchilada Chicken Roll-Ups give you authentic enchilada flavor without all the work, calories or fat.  And you won’t even miss the tortillas!

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 10-ounce can mild red enchilada sauce (I used my homemade enchilada sauce)
  • 1 ½ pounds 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 4-ounce can mild green chilis
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 large (6-ounce avocado, cubed)
  • Chopped cilantro (for garnish)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cumin, oregano, garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper.  Rub on both sides of each chicken piece.
  • Spray a small (8x6-ish) oval or rectangular baking dish with cooking spray and pour a thin layer of enchilada sauce on the bottom of the dish.
  • Lay chicken, cut side up on a work surface. Top each piece, in the center, with about 2 teaspoons chilis and 1 1/2 tablespoons cheese.
  • Roll each one up and set them seam side down in the baking dish.  Top with remaining sauce, cheese and chilis.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove foil and continue to bake 10-15 minutes more, or until chicken is cooked through.
  • Top each chicken roll-up with a few avocado pieces and cilantro and serve.

Notes

To freeze, transfer to a freezer safe container once cooked and cool for up to 3 months.
