in the last year i have been really trying to make dinner alot more. i have found tons of easy, kid friendly recipes...and got this delish dish from my cousin. made it last night and loved it! try it out...its really, really good and so easy!

Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas
6 tablespoons honey
5 tablespoons lime juice
½ tablespoon chili powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder

1 pound chicken, cooked and shredded (I used 3 small chicken breasts)
8-10 flour tortillas
1 pound monterey jack cheese, shredded
16 ounces green chili enchilada sauce
1 cup heavy cream

Mix the first four ingredients and toss with shredded chicken. Let it marinate for at least 1/2 hour (I tossed mine together in a ziploc bag in the morning and let it sit in the refrigerator all day).
Pour about 1/2 cup enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9X13 baking pan.
Fill flour tortillas with chicken and shredded cheese, saving about 1 cup of cheese to sprinkle on top of enchiladas.
Mix the remaining enchilada sauce with the cream and leftover marinade.
Pour sauce on top of the enchiladas and sprinkle with cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until brown and crispy on top.
