Another good one

 Chicken Enchiladas and Sweet Corn Casserole- Holy Smokes.
 The enchilada recipe came to me years ago from my cousin Tina and since then I have tweeked it to make it mine. This one feeds the masses.

1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cans green enchilada sauce
1 can diced green chilis
chicken breasts no skin ( I've used thighs too in a pinch)
taco seasoning
mexican oregano
olive oil spray
corn tortillas
monterey jack cheese shredded and or mexican shredded cheese

Are you ready?
In a pan spray olive oil spray and turn to medium heat. cover your breast ( the chicken's that is) in taco seasoning and mexian oregano both sides. Cook covered for 5 minutes on one side and then flip- covered for another 5 minutes. Breasts should be firm to touch with fork.
In a bowl combine one can of cream of chicken soup, 1 can of green enchilada sauce, 1/2 can of diced green chilis and 1/2 package of shredded cheese. Shred your chicken with a fork.

 To roll the enchiladas zap a few of them in the micro until they are warm and workable- 30 seconds should do. A little chicken, a little soup mixture and roll. Place in a 9x12 baking dish that you have sprayed with olive oil or put a little green sauce on the bottom. Sometimes I do both. Your seam side should be down. You will have enough to do 2 9x 12 dishes or you can layer one for a casserole and freeze for later ( sauce, tortilla, chicken, soup mixture, cheese- repeat) Bake 375 for 45 minutes.
Sweet corn casserole comes from my NY sister/friend Lisa. Ever have the corn cake at the restraurant that they scoop on your plate with an ice cream scoop- Heaven. Now you can have it at home and it's easy.
1 box of jiffy corn muffin mix
1 can of creamed corn ( if you only have corn kernals hit it with a blender and you are golden)
1 egg
1/2 cup of sour cream
3 T of sugar ( I like it really sweet so I add 1/3 cup)
1 stick of butter melted

Mix- put in a 9x12 and bake for 45 minutes at 375.

They can be side by side in the oven, serve with a salad and you are good. Hope you enjoy and let me know if you have any questions.
Not sure why I'm channeling my inner Rachel Ray lately.
