Real food chicken enchiladas

I love chicken enchiladas. Make them all the time.  Here's my recipe for real food enchiladas that taste amazing. And since I found the recipe for my own sauce from Gimme Some Oven, there even better. 

Real food Chicken Enchilada

Here is the link for the sauce.

For the enchiladas proper you'll need:
3lb bag of chicken breasts or a rotisserie chicken (I've used both)
large block of cheese
3 cups cooked brown rice
cup sour cream
8 tortillas

If you're using frozen chicken breasts cook them at 350 for about 20-30 or till there done. While you're doing that, shrewd the cheese (don't use per shredded cheese. They add totally gross stuff to it to keep it from clumping. An extra 5minutes of work, and less chemical grossness in your body) Either way, with the cooked chicken shrewd it up (debone first if you are using rotisserie).

Mix up the shredded chicken, rice, sour cream, a handful of cheese, and a quarter cup of the sauce.  Evenly spoon a bit of the mix into a tortilla and wrap it up, put it into a baking dish.  Once there all wrapped, pour the sauce over the enchiladas and top with cheese.  Bake for 20 at 350.
