4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
kosher salt & black pepper
1 15 ounce can enchilada sauce

8 ounces sour cream
1 cup Mexican blend shredded cheese

Cojita cheese crumbled
Tortilla corn strips or corn chips
Homemade Refried Beans optional side dish. Click for recipe.

Heat oven to 375°F and spray an 8×11-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
Pound the breasts to an even 1” thickness.
Season both sides of the breasts with salt and black pepper.
Place the chicken in the prepared dish.
In a medium bowl, whisk together enchilada sauce, drained tomatoes, and sour cream. Pour the sauce/sour cream mixture over the chicken.
Bake at 375°F for 20-30 or until the internal temperature, of a middle breast, reads 155°F.
Sprinkle breast with the Mexican blend cheese and cook just until cheese is melted and just beginning to bubble.
Remove chicken from the oven and allow to rest 3-4 minutes.
Serving idea: Place a nest of tortilla chips/strips on the plate and place the chicken on top. Drizzle with extra sauce and garnish with chopped cilantro & crumbled Cotija cheese.
