Oven, Stovetop, Frying pan
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Coat the chicken with taco seasoning on all sides.
Heat a drizzle of oil on a pan over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken on one side, undisturbed for 7-8 min. Flip the chicken & cook 3-4 more min or until fully cooked (internal temperature reaches 165°F). Transfer to a plate to cool slightly.
Add one tortilla to a microwave-safe plate. Layer a damp paper towel over top & repeat with the remaining tortillas. Heat in the microwave for 10-15 sec.
Use two forks to shred the chicken.
In a bowl, combine shredded chicken, half the Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream & taco seasoning. Mix well to combine.
Add a layer of filling to a warm tortilla & roll it up. Add the rolled tortilla to a baking dish & repeat until all of the filling is used up. Be sure to arrange them snugly in the dish!
Pour enchilada sauce over top & sprinkle on the remaining cheese. Bake in the oven at 400°F for 15-20 min, or until heated through & melty on top.
Serve hot garnished with fresh cilantro if you have! Enjoy!
