"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Cook chicken by boiling until done. Drain and cool, then shred or cut into bite size pieces. Heat and thicken enchilada sauce (I use olive oil and flour to make a paste and then add the sauce). In a 10 x 13 pan you will layer sauce, tortillas (tear into quarters), chicken and cheese. Repeat layers 1 - 2 more times ending with the enchilada sauce. Bake for 30 - 45 minutes or until sides bubble and cheese is melted. Serve hot and top with sliced lettuce, diced onions, sour cream and extra sauce.

Personal Notes:
You will want to put a cookie sheet or aluminum foil under the pan while cooking to prevent any spillage. You can use two 8 x 8 pans and divide the recipe between them. Cook one and freeze the extra for a quick dinner later on.
