Low Carb Chicken Enchiladas

Yes, creamy, low carb chicken enchiladas!!

We are snowed in right now which gives me extra time in the kitchen. I have been wanting an on plan chicken enchilada for a while now. My original plan failed so I changed plans at 5:30 last night. I had chicken thawed and I had just bought some low carb tortillas from my favorite grocery store, Aldi. Walla, low carb chicken enchiladas. These were a hit with the family, no leftovers. I used my instant pot to make cook the chicken breasts up super fast.

This is another recipe that is special ingredient free and uses basic ingredients.

I am a mom who is usually pretty busy (this 2021 winter snow and cold breaking temps has freed up some of my time) and I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen. With a few basic ingredients and spices, we had a wonderful dinner of chicken enchiladas. I used regular tortillas for the teens and low carb for me and my hubby. I ate mine with some homemade guacamole and they had refried beans.

If you need a busy weeknight meal, make this one.

You can use chicken from a rotisserie chicken, your meal prep, or use your instant pot to make up some cooked chicken breasts in a flash. I have said it so many times, my crockpot and my instant pot are my two favorite kitchen appliances. I can make a meal in the morning or get it finished after a busy day in no time. I wouldn’t have been able to get the enchiladas finished without the instant pot. Dinner saved again!!
