By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

The recipe Enchilada Chicken is ready in roughly 45 minutes and is definitely a great gluten free option for lovers of Mexican food. One serving contains 360 calories, 39g of protein, and 12g of fat. This recipe serves 4 and costs $1.94 per serving. Not a lot of people really liked this main course. 1 person has made this recipe and would make it again. If you have cilantro, mrs. dash southwest chipotle seasoning, monterey jack cheese, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 60%. This score is good. Try Chicken Enchilada Casserole (a.k.a. "Stacked" Chicken Enchiladas), Enchilada Chicken, and Chicken Enchilada for similar recipes.

Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sparkling rosé are my top picks for Mexican. Acidic white wines like riesling or low-tannin reds like pinot noir can work well with Mexican dishes. Sparkling rosé is a safe pairing too. One wine you could try is Beaux Freres The Beaux Freres Vineyard Pinot Noir. It has 4.1 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 56 dollars.

Beaux Freres The Beaux Freres Vineyard Pinot Noir

Shows dark plum/garnet with some amber and orange at the edge. The nose shows roasted herbs and meatiness with some background notes of sweet cherry, truffle and vegetal qualities. This is a distinctive Pinot Noir with aromatics that are very old-world. In the mouth the wine has always had a certain austerity but a bit of a gap in the middle. The wine has held up nicely over time but has never really developed the sweetness and charm that we would expect of our best Pinot Noirs.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Beat and tenderize the chicken! (a reminder for myself)
  3. Season each chicken breast evenly on both sides with the southwest seasoning.
  4. Place a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over high heat. When hot, lightly mist with the olive oil spray and add the chicken. Cook, turning once, 2 minutes per side, or just until the chicken is golden brown on the outside.
  5. While chicken is cooking heat beans over medium heat on stove top.
  6. Remove the pan from the heat and top each chicken breast with 1 tablespoon of the enchilada sauce, one-fourth of the cheese and one-fourth of the cilantro.
  7. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 6 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink inside and the cheese is melted.
  8. Serve over black beans.
