A couple of weeks ago I was working on my weekly menu planning and wanted to get a pre-cooked rotissere chicken from the grocery store. I love those, but knew after one meal that there would be lots of it left. So, I got the idea to try and make three meals out of the one chicken. I figured this would save me time and money.

I was correct.

I was able to get three dishes out of it and we still had a little bit left.

Today, I’m sharing my favorite chicken dish, Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas. These are sooo tasty. I love the lime, honey and chili mix that the chicken soaks in. Gives it so much flavor.

I’m positive these will become your favorite too.

Wednesday – I’ll be sharing my chicken taco soup



Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 2 tsps to 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 to 2 cups of rotissere chicken, shredded.

  • 2 cups mexican blend cheese, shredded
  • 1 14-oz can of green enchilada sauce
  • ½ to ¾ cup of heavy cream
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place the shredded chicken in a bowl, set aside.
  3. In another bowl, mix together the honey, lime juice, chili powder and garlic.
  4. Pour this mixture over the chicken and stir. Set aside for at least 30 minutes to an hour.
  5. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray.
  6. In a bowl, combine the enchilada sauce and the heavy cream.
  7. Spread about a ½ cup of the sauce on the bottom of the pan.
  8. Add a large spoonful of chicken to the middle of a corn tortilla in a line.
  9. Top with a pinch of cheese and place seam-side down into the baking pan.
  10. Repeat with the remaining chicken, cheese and tortillas.
  11. Pour the remaining green enchilada and heavy cream sauce over the tortillas.
  12. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  13. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Cheese should be melted and bubbly and starting to brown on top.

  1. I love things with a hint of sweet, my husband loves things with lime. This might be a winner for us both. Love that you were able to get so many uses out if one chicken!

  2. Yum. This looks and sounds delicious. I definitely need to try it, especially since we’re partial to Mexican style foods and chicken! Perfect combination.
