    Tomatillo Chicken Enchiladas

    4 Cup Coarsely shredded chicken or turkey
    3 Cup Grated Monterey Jack−cheese(divided)
    1 To 2 (4−oz) cans chopped green chilies
    1−1/2 Teaspoon Dried oregano leaves
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Vegetable oil
    12 To 18 corn tortillas−(depending on size)
    Tomatillo sauce(recipe−follows)
    1 To 1−1/2 cups sour cream
    Chopped cilantro, tomatillo slices and lime slices for garnish

    In a large bowl, mix chicken, 2 cups cheese, chilies and oregano. Season
    with salt and pepper; set aside. In a large skillet, heat 1/2 inch oil over
    medium−high heat. When oil is hot add one tortilla at a time; cook turning
    once, just until limp(about 10 seconds). Drain on paper towels. While
    tortillas are warm, spoon about 1/4 to 1/2 cup chicken mixture down the
    center of each; roll tortillas to form enchilada. Set enchiladas seam side
    down, in a 9−by−13−by−2−inch baking dish, or to medium−sized baking dishes.
    (at this point enchiladas may be covered and refrigerated until the next
    day.) Cover enchiladas with foil and bake in a 350 oven for 15 minutes until
    hot in the center (cook 30 minutes if they were refrigerated). Uncover and
    top with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, until cheese melts, about 10
    minutes. To serve, spoon warm tomatillo sauce on each plate. Set enchiladas
    on top of sauce. Spoon sour cream on top and garnish.
