How to make it
- Boil the chicken legs and thighs with seasoning salt and black pepper over medium heat until cooked through.
- Discard water and let chicken cool in a strainer.
- Once chicken is cool, discard the skin and remove chicken from bone. Set aside.
- Warm tortillas in microwave between wet paper towels OR fry lightly for about 1-2 min or each side.
- Dip 1 tortilla in enchilada sauce. Lay flat (sauce side down). Add chicken, a little cheese and some onions. Roll and lay seam side down is glass or metal baking dish.
- Repeat process until filling is gone (you may end up using more than one pan)
- Pour half of remaining enchilada sauce over the top of the enchiladas. Sprinkle some cheese (to your liking) over the top and cover with foil. Bake for approximately 25 minutes.
- Remove foil, add more cheese and black olives and bake for about another 5 minutes or till cheese is melted.
- Serve hot with salsa and sour cream on top, if desired.
