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.
