Chichen Chilaquiles

Not a bad dinner for a hot and humid Tuesday night! I got 4 very enthusiastic thumbs up from my homies which is next to impossible in my house. Anyways, I just wanted to share the recipe of Chicken Chilaquiles(I like to say the name.) which provides a mere 347 calories per serving. I had some leftover grilled chicken, but, you can also use rotisserie chicken breast. Here it is:
Chicken Chilaquiles
2 c. shredded skinless rotisserie chicken
1/2 c. chopped green onions
1/2 c. mexican blend shredded cheese
2T. parmesan cheese
1t. chili powder
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
Combine those ingredients in a medium bowl. Next make the sauce....
3/4 c. 1% milk
1/4c. cilantro(I used more)
11 oz can of tomatillos(I used fresh tomatillos chopped)
4.5 oz can of green chiles drained
Blend those ingredients in a blender or food processor.
Then place 1/3 of sauce into a 11 x 7 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Place 4 small corn tortillas over the sauce. Put 1/2 of your chicken mixture on the tortillas. Then layer(like lasagna) another 4 tortillas and rest of chicken. End with 4 tortillas on the top. Pour remaining tomatillo sauce over the whole dish. I made some extra sauce to ensure the dish is moist enough. Sprinkle with 1/4 c. Mexican shredded cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Makes 4 servings.
