Notes

 
CHICKEN: You can use homemade or store-bought shredded chicken. If you don’t have chicken leftovers or don't want to run out to the store to buy a rotisserie chicken, it is super easy to make your own shredded chicken in the pressure cooker. See the instructions in the post content (above).
 
STORE: Cover and keep leftover enchiladas up to 2 days in the refrigerator.
 
FREEZE: Cover enchiladas tightly with plastic wrap, then aluminum foil. Freeze up to 2 months.
 
MAKE AHEAD: To make ahead, prepare the green enchiladas according to directions, cover tightly with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.
 
REHEAT: Remove the plastic wrap. Bake frozen enchiladas for 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees. Or let the enchiladas thaw, then bake for 30 -35 minutes. Remove the foil for the last 5-10 minutes.
