Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas

Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas are my favorite type of enchiladas! These come together so quickly and they taste amazing!! These are the perfect meal to add to the weekly dinner rotation! These enchiladas are light, healthy, and easy to make! Make it with me!

To cook the chicken for this recipe, my favorite way is to cook it in the Instant Pot! The chicken comes out so flavorful and moist, and it shreds so easily. To see how I do that, check out this post Easy Shredded Chicken.

In these pictures, I doubled the recipe and make 8 enchiladas! This recipe works great to double, or even triple! You can also half it if you only need 2.

This recipe is great with a side of Homemade Refried Beans and Spanish Rice.
