Serves 4
Prep time 15 minutes
Cook time 40 minutes

1 (7oz) can tomatillo sauce or 1 cup prepared salsa verde
1 cup fat-free sour cream
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 large shallot, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
8 fat-free corn tortillas
1 cups shredded cooked chicken breasts
cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese

1.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 2-quart shallow baking dish with nonstick spray.

2.) Combine the tomatillo sauce, sour cream, cilantro, shallot, and garlic in a large bowl.

3.) Place 4 tortillas in the bottom of the baking dish, overlapping as necessary to cover as much of the surface as possible. Spoon half the tomatillo mixture over the tortillas. Sprinkle the chicken evenly over the sauce; sprinkle the cup cheese over the chicken. Place the remaining 4 tortillas on top, then spoon on the remaining sauce, spreading it evenly to the sides. Top with the remaining cup cheese.

4.) Cover the baking dish and bake 25 minutes. Uncover and bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 15 minutes. Let stand about 5 minutes before serving.
