What Chicken To Use For Enchilada Soup
If you’d like to skip some of the cooktime of this soup, you can use our easy boiled chicken recipe for delicious, flavorful shredded chicken.
You can also use leftover chicken, shredded, or a store-bought rotisserie chicken that you’ve shredded to bypass much of this enchilada soup’s cooking time.
We’re calling for chicken breasts in this recipe – but you can also use chicken thighs if you prefer dark meat.
If using chicken thighs, remove any fat, skin, or bones before cooking and shredding.
