It wasn't all that much trouble....I looked on Foodily.com for a recipe that sounded good to me, one where I had the ingredients in my refrigerator and pantry, and then made some adjustments for my taste.  I had a bone-in chicken breast thawed for our supper so instead of grilling it I just poached it for a while and then shredded the meat.  I had a can of green enchilada sauce and the green chiles so the rest was easy.  The enchilada crema was just sour cream with an equal amount of green enchilada sauce ~ it was really good on the rolls.

Here's what I based it on:

Chicken Enchiladas
(Southern Living)

These easy, cheesy chicken enchiladas come together in a snap and are faster and way more delicious than fast food.

• Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients
• 3 cups chopped cooked chicken
• 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese with peppers
• 1/2 cup sour cream
• 1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles, drained

• 8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
• Vegetable cooking spray
• 1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
• 1 (8-ounce) bottle green taco sauce

• Toppings: diced tomato, chopped avocado, chopped green onions, sliced ripe olives

Preparation
Stir together first 4 ingredients. Spoon chicken mixture evenly over each tortilla, and roll up. Arrange in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Coat tortillas with vegetable cooking spray.

Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown.

Stir together sour cream and taco sauce. Spoon over hot enchiladas, and sprinkle with toppings.

With all the talk about tamales you guys got me thinking about something Mexican.  Chicken Enchilads with assorted toppings:  Extra green sauce, Cheese, Black olives, Enchilada Crema, Tomatoes, Avacado & Green Onion.  Side of Mexican rice to go on the side.



My loaded enchilada:


Wow!... now they look good! I would do beef or pork for me though!

A long time friend in Seattle posted a picture of a new Nordic loaf pan. It is for quick breads but since the French bread i made the other day was gone after two days, I decided to make some more today. While the bread was rising I went to Williams Sonoma and liked the pan enough to get one. I know it isn't for yeast bread but I put one of the loaves in it anyway. I also wanted to try an Italian meatball recipe and so we had the meatballs, bread and a salad for dinner tonight.

What a great idea Norm. I wonder what other pans would produce a beautiful loaf like that. It seems that your yeast dough could work in any pan. I have seen a pan that makes the loaf look like a challah without actually braiding it.

I was thinking this pan might be a good one for Challah.

It would be great for Challah. I have a baking pan which is shaped like a rose. It's difficult to get the cake out sometimes.

Delicious looking Norm. Just the way I eat my spaghetti. Not a lot of sauce. Tina likes hers, swimming in sauce!....
BTW.... the bread slice is only half buttered. On a diet?.... LOL
And that bread.....Oh Ho Ho Ho ....It's making me drool! Ummmm....nothing like home made bread and butter.

The Nordic pan makes a beautiful loaf.....but it's rivaled by the equally (or more) beautiful loaf you formed on your own. Now you have me checking to see if I have any yeast.....

Jimmy, after the butter softened a little more, I spread it over the rest of the slice.

Beth, even though I use a sour dough starter, after the sponge has bubbled up and added flavor, I add some bread machine yeast with the rest of the flour. No need to take a chance it won't rise or will take hours and hours. That has happened sometimes with the sour dough starter by itself.

I'm going to make flatbread on the grill and have it with an arugula salad w/homemade dressing made from one of my Myer lemons (that I grew all by myself!).

Norm, where did you get your starter? Did you start it yourself or did you order it?

I once had a starter from San Francisco that I kept for a couple of decades. When it finally bit the dust, I decided not to get anymore but about two months later a friend sent me some from King Arthur as a Christmas present along with a crock for keeping it. That is the one I have now and it's about two years old. During the summer I keep it in the refrigerator and let it go dormant. There can be up to 6 months that it just sits there before I wake it up and start using it again.

You can make it and put it into 4 oz. containers and then reheat for chicken parm. Don't need pasta for that (unless you want it). I've not been breading my chicken cutlets lately, just pounding and (maybe a dusting of flour, but not necessary) a quick saute in evoo. Melt some moz on top & some of the sauce. Salad along side. Dane's been happy with it.

I didn't know you could let them go dormant.

You can freeze it too. Heat is what kills it.
