Shortcut Honey-Lime Chicken Enchiladas

I love this easy recipe because it begins with a store-bought rotisserie chicken, but when you get through with it, the taste is remarkable, and it looks very pretty if you garnish it with just a few cherry or grape tomatoes and fresh cilantro or parsley, if you’d like. Sometimes, as in my photo, I add red bell peppers or green to the chicken mixture too.

The honey and lime add that sweet/acidic balance that makes a dish extra good. I think you’ll love it like we do.
