Chicken California

I found this recipe on a blog called Dinner Time Ideas. I got excited because I love anything wrapped in a tortilla. (These uncooked tortillas we get at Costco, are amazing) I thought they would taste bland but I was really surprised when they tasted great! We've had them several times since, it is a new family favorite. I didn't have fresh parsley, I rarely do, but it is just as good without.


4 T butter
4 T flour
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
2 cups milk
2 cups chicken, cooked & shredded or cut into bite-size pieces
2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, grated
1 dozen flour tortillas
2 T chopped parsley

1) Preheat oven to 350*.
2) Measure flour, salt & pepper into small bowl.
3) Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Add flour/salt/pepper all at once. Whisk until mixed well.
4) Cook over low heat, stirring until mixture is smooth & bubbly.
5) SLOWLY stir in milk, whisking constantly, and heat to boiling. Continue stirring until smooth & thickened.
6) Reserve half of sauce, set aside.
7) Put a spoonful each of chicken, cheese and sauce in each tortilla, then roll up enchilada-style. Lay side-by-side in a 9x13” pan.(I just add 1 tablespoon of sauce to each tortilla)
8) Spread remaining sauce evenly over top of rolled tortillas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese & chopped parsley.
9) Bake uncovered at 350* for 20-25 mins.

They're best when they're fresh with a little bit of crunchiness on the tortilla, but they are also quite good for left overs for taking to work.
