Directions:
Cook chicken in a small saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer about 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked. Remove from heat and cool. Shred chicken, add chopped green chilies and salt to taste. Set aside.
Make Geen Cream Sauce. Cook spinach according to package directions. Cool and wrap spinach in towel and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Measure about 1/2 cup spinach and set aside. Use remainder for another use.
Place 1/2 cup spinach, green chilies and 1 cup of the cream in blender or food processor and blend about 15 seconds until vegetables are pureed.
Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat and stir in the pureed mixture and the remaining cream. Simmer for about five minutes (until slightly thickened) and add salt to taste and remove from heat.
Place about 1 Tbsp. of shredded cheese chicken mixture just off center in each tortilla and roll up. Place enchiladas in a shallow baking dish, open side down. Ladle the green cream sauce over the enchiladas. Sprinkle with the grated cheese and bake in 425 oven about 10 minutes until heated through. Run enchiladas under broiler to lightly brown the cheese.
