No Count Chicken Enchiladas

These are a real treat and so yummy!  Comfort food at its best!

They are free on No Count and 5 points each on WW Flex .  You could make them for 4 points each if you substituted the olive oil for Frylight.

  

Ingredients (serves 2 – 4):

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 4 WW wraps
  • paprika
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (from daily allowance)
  • an onion, finely sliced
  • a red pepper, finely sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 500g passata
  • 1 heaped tsp cumin
  • 2 heaped tsp chipotle paste
  • a tub of Yeo Valley 0% crème fraiche
  • 50g Protein cheese, grated

Method:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in an oven tray. Season to taste and sprinkle with paprika.  Cover with tin foil and cook for about 45 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the onion and pepper.  Fry for about 5 minutes before adding the garlic and cooking for a further minute.
  4. Add the passata, cumin and chipotle paste. Season to taste and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. When the chicken is cooked through, take it out of the oven and place on a plate. Use a fork to shred the meat.
  6. Put about a quarter of the sauce in an ovenproof dish.
  7. Place the wraps open on your worktop and share the crème fraiche between the four of them. Place the crème fraiche down the middle of each wrap and then place the chicken on top.
  8. Roll each wrap up and place them on top of the sauce in the ovenproof dish.
  9. Cover the wraps with the remaining sauce and sprinkle the cheese over the top.
  10. Bake in the oven for a further 15 minutes.
  11. Serve and enjoy!

(One of these is plenty for me but hubby can manage two which is why I’ve put this recipe can serve between two and four people.)

    1. Hi Lizzie 🤗 Really glad you enjoyed these. Do try the salmon Enchiladas too, if you like salmon: I like them even more. 👍🏻💝💕 Helen xxxxxx

  1. These were lovely, usually I have to alter things with ww recipes as I find they lack something. These were spot on, will definitely be making these again

  2. Hi Helen, I’ve been doing WW flex for 14 weeks and 2 stone down, thought I’d give NC a go for my last stone (ish). Can I ask how this is free? what about the cheese? TIA

    1. Hi Sally, congratulations on your 2 stone weight loss – that’s brilliant! This dish is free because the WW wraps are free on No Count and the cheese is Protein cheese: 26g is 0sp and you can have up to 79g for 1sp. It tastes better if it has been cooked:-) Check out the page: Useful ingredients and Where to Buy for more info. I’m making this for dinner tomorrow – it really is delicious! Helen xxxxx

      1. Thanks Helen, I didn’t realise protein cheese was so low in points, I will definitely look out for it now. X

  3. Hi Helen been using this recipe for a while now. All the family love them, had them last night but my daughter was out so asked if I could save hers so she could take it to work for lunch. Just looked on my Facebook and she has posted that her mum makes the best enchiladas, so I would like to pass this to you as it is your recipe. Thank you so much for the great recipes we all love them . X

    1. Hi Annette, and thank you so much for your lovely comment – it’s made my day! 💕 I’m so glad you’re all enjoying the enchiladas recipe – and you’ve reminded me that I haven’t made them for a while so must try to fit them in 😋💕 Hope you’re having a good week 🤗💕💕 Helen xxxxxx

  4. id love to try this, what and where would i get chipotle paste? never heard of it, or is there an alternative! amazing recipes btw, so many to try 😃👍🏻

    1. Hi and thank you Sam, I’m glad to hear you like the look of the recipes:-) Chipotle paste is dried, smoked jalapeno chillies blended with tomatoes and onions. It’s available to buy at most major supermarkets although there are times when I have struggled to find it, so when I do I usually stock up:-) You could use chilli powder as a substitute (try 1 to 2 flat tsps): it’s a really yummy dish so I hope you enjoy it.
