Honey Lime Chicken Enchilada Cups




I've always been a big fan of wonton wrappers. I love how versatile they are and I can always create great recipes using them. I'm also always mentioning how great they are for portion control. Last spring I made these fantastic enchiladas. I've wanted to make them again but I needed the recipe to be a little more figure friendly. Well, this recipe is just that. These tasty little cups are just as good as the original recipe but without all the guilt! They were delicious!

Honey Lime Chicken Enchilada Cups
Makes 12 Cups
WW PP=2
Cal 102, Fat 3.1g, Carbs 8.7g, Fiber 1g, Protein 8.7g

Ingredients
1 cup shredded cooked chicken
12 wonton wrappers
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I used reduced fat)
1/2 cup shredded monterrey jack cheese
1/2 cup green enchilada sauce
1/8 cup half and half (I used fat free)
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp honey
4 tbsp lime juice

In a medium mixing bowl combine the honey, lime juice, chili powder, garlic powder, and half and half together. Mix well and pour over shredded chicken. Cover and place in the fridge for 45 minutes.

While the chicken is marinating, spray a 12 cup muffin tin with non fat cooking spray. Push a wonton wrapper into each tin. Fill each cup with some of the chicken mixture and top with some of the shredded cheeses and enchilada sauce.

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Enjoy!

  3. You have the best recipes and I need to get in the kitchen and cook them. I haven't yet but probably will one of these days. I'm not a big fan of cooking. Esther Norine Designs
