Dairy & Gluten Free Green Enchiladas




  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • 1/2 Medium Yellow Onion, diced
  • 2 Zucchinis, shredded
  • 12 to 16 Corn Tortillas
  • 1/3 Cup Broth (vegetable or meat)
  • 1/2 Bunch of Fresh Cilantro, chopped
  • 2 1/2 to 3 Cups Green Enchilada Sauce (see homemade green enchilada sauce recipe below)


  1. Preheat Oven and Cook Chicken:
    • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
    • In a braiser or Dutch oven, add 1/3 cup broth and two chicken breasts. Close the lid and bake for 25 minutes. Shred the chicken with two forks and set aside.
  2. Saute Onions and Zucchini:
    • In a medium-sized pan over medium heat, sauté the diced onions and shredded zucchini until the onions are lightly golden brown (about 3 to 5 minutes). Add them to the shredded chicken bowl.
  3. Mix Chicken and Veggies with Sauce:
    • Add 3/4 cup of green sauce to the chicken and veggie mixture. Mix well to combine.
  4. Assemble Enchiladas:
    • Spread 1/2 cup of green sauce evenly on the bottom of a 13×9 casserole dish.
    • Heat 1/4 cup of green enchiladas sauce in a small pan over low heat. Dip each tortilla in the sauce, ensuring both sides are coated and softened.
    • Fill each tortilla with a handful of the chicken-veggie mixture, fold them, and place them face down in the casserole dish. Repeat until the dish is full.
  5. Bake:
    • Top the enchiladas with the remaining green sauce.
    • Bake for 25 minutes at 375°F.
  6. Serve:
    • Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve hot.
