Heat the flour tortillas in the microwave for 20 seconds to soften them. Then start assembling the sour cream chicken enchiladas by spreading half a cup of the chicken mixture evenly on each warm tortilla. Roll them tightly, and place each one seam side down in the prepared baking dish.
Pour the sour cream cheese sauce over the rolled tortillas and top with the remaining shredded cheese. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake it for 30 minutes until golden brown and bubbling.
Use a rotisserie chicken instead of baking and shredding chicken breasts to save yourself some time in the kitchen.
