  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Spray an 8x8 square glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Then, pour 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce in the baking dish. Swirl around and ensure that the entire bottom is covered in the sauce.
  • In a large bowl add the shredded chicken, 3 tablespoons of the freshly minced cilantro, and 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce. Mix well and set to the side.
  • Lay a flour tortilla on the counter. Place in the middle of the tortilla;  1/2 cup shredded chicken and a 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Close the tortilla in half then scoot all the filling to one side and roll tightly. Place the tortilla seam side down. Repeat until the other 3 enchiladas are made.
  • Pour the remaining sauce on top of the enchiladas--completely covering the tortillas. Top with 1/4 cup of cheese. Bake with foil for 25 minutes. Then remove the foil and cook for a remaining 5 minutes.
  • Heat the remaining enchilada sauce and set to the side.
  • Remove from the oven and top with diced tomatoes and the remaining minced cilantro. Carefully cut and serve enchiladas. Pour remaining sauce on top and enjoy.
