Enchilada chicken ~ A Must Try!!!!

This version is the leanest yet, and being that it’s packed with lean protein, has little saturated fat and is virtually carb-less.

  • 4 4-ounce trimmed boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 teaspoons salt-free Mexican or Southwest seasoning (I used Southwest Chipotle Mrs. Dash)
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1/4 cup medium, mild or hot enchilada sauce, divided
  • 2 ounces (about a heaping 1/2 cup) finely shredded Cabot’s 75% light Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro leaves


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Season each chicken breast evenly on all sides with the seasoning.

Place a large, ovenproof, nonstick skillet over high heat. When it’s hot, lightly mist the skillet with spray and add the chicken to the pan. Cook the chicken about 1-2 minutes per side just until the chicken is golden brown on the outside.

Remove the pan from the heat and top each chicken breast with 1 tablespoon of the enchilada sauce, followed by ¼ (about 1/2 ounce) of the cheese and ¼ (about ½ tablespoon) of the cilantro. Transfer the skillet to the oven. Bake the chicken for 4-6 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink inside and the cheese is melted.
