BOIL chicken breasts for 20 minutes. Remove chicken from water and place in a bowl. Shred with two forks. Set aside.



MELT butter in a large skillet. Add flour; mix to combine. Cook for 3 minutes.



ADD in spinach, evaporated milk, water and bouillon. Mix constantly for 13 minutes or until spinach has wilted and turns bright green.



PLACE spinach mixture in blender; cover. Blend until creamy and smooth. Set aside.



HEAT oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Using tongs, cook one tortilla at a time. Fry on both sides for about 30 to 40 seconds. You want the tortilla to be slightly hard but still pliable.



FILL the center of each tortilla with 1/3 cup shredded chicken; roll up. Place in a casserole dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas and chicken.



POUR spinach sauce over enchiladas.



Cook’s Tip: Folding the tortilla in half helps reduce the amount of rolling.
