This baked chicken enchiladas recipe is packed with meat and veggies smothered in a creamy Greek yogurt topping.



This recipe always makes me smile because it was the very first meal I ever made for Zach.


We had been dating for a couple of weeks, and they say the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.


Well, here we are a decade later still enjoying each other and these baked chicken enchiladas, so if that doesn’t say something about this recipe then I don’t know what will.


It is no surprise, of course, that I added Greek yogurt (one of my favorite nutrient-dense ingredient replacements), and when topped with your favorite sharp cheddar cheese this is a dish that will quickly become a family favorite.


Use gluten-free, low carb, or regular tortillas of choice.


Bon appetit!
